Where to find it in the Bible

The following references are given to assist you in finding out exactly what the Bible tells us about the events described in this virtual passion history. Once again, you are encouraged to read these accounts for yourself. If you do not have access to a Bible, visit the Bible Gateway where you'll find a number of different translations. If you would like to purchase one, I recommend the Concordia Self-Study Bible.
