An Easter Walk in The Holy Land

Jerusalem Tomb of the Garden

I recently discovered a series of incredibly beautiful and insightful religion lectures entitled The Eternal Christ, filmed on location in the Holy Land featuring the beloved author, lecturer, teacher and latter-day religious scholar Truman G. Madsen (1926 – 2009).

Here is an excerpt of Brother Madsen’s powerful Easter Message [taken from a documentary about his life] for you to ponder and enjoy,  appropriately filmed on the morning of Easter Sunday 2009, at the Garden Tomb.

“He was not only lifted upon the cross, but He was lifted beyond the cross”

Truman G. Madsen

 Truman G. Madsen (1926–2009) occupied BYU’s Richard L. Evans Chair of Christian Understanding for more than 20 years. A prolific author, beloved teacher, director of the Jerusalem Center for Near Eastern Studies, and presenter of popular audio and video lectures on gospel subjects, Madsen left his spiritual legacy and testimony through a set of powerful DVDs, completed just prior to his final illness entitled The Eternal Christ: Truman G. Madsen in the Holy Land.  Dr. Madsen was married to another well-respected religious scholar, a poet and expert on Isaiah, Ann Nicholls Madsen. Together, the couple raised four children, including a Navajo foster son.
