Bible Society Australia retells Easter “2017 style”

Easter in con-tex

If this Easter was the very first one, how would we hear about it… SMS? social media? #Diditreallyhappen?

Our “Holy Text” campaign is a unique Bible-based drama, where users will receive eye-witness texts from those who were there when Jesus died and famously rose again.

We’re not changing Easter, but we are telling it “2017 style”.

Bible Society Australia CEO Greg Clarke says “it’s a unique re-telling of the Easter story where people can truly engage with the Bible and hear from those who witnessed the event that changed mankind forever”.

But can we believe it really happened ?

The Bible assures us we can and that’s the best news you’ll hear this Easter – IF YOU’RE A PART OF IT !!!

Simply text the word “Holy” to 0488 222 777 and hear from the people who Jesus changed in the week that changed the world.

Participants will receive texts from Mary Magdalene, Simon Peter, John Ben Zebedee and Mark from Palm Sunday 9 April through to Easter Sunday 16 April.

Standard SMS rates apply to register.

In its bicentenary year, it’s a fresh initiative from Bible Society Australia and another way of helping Australians engage with the Bible.
