Description: When Jesus died on the cross, nobody thought him a hero. His movement was over. Nothing had changed. This was what Rome did best. Caesar was still on his throne and death once again had the last word. Except in this case it didn't. Jesus' followers came up with the shocking claim that his death had launched a revolution. They believed that God had suddenly put into operation His plan for the rescue of the world. It was the day the Revolution began. NT Wright joins us.
