sins, so there are profound implications
for whether or not the story we read in the
Gospels really took place.
TOS: You said in the show that it brought
you face to face with the reality that this
happened, that this was real. Was there
any one particular place or moment where
that struck you more than others?
Dave: I have often described what it’s like,
but it’s impossible to really describe what
it’s like, to go inside the Church of the Holy
Sepulcher. It’s a church that’s been built
over where they say Golgotha likely was,
and the tomb is also there. It’s profound
to go in there because if those two events
didn’t take place—the Crucifixion and the
Resurrection—you and I wouldn’t even
know who this man Jesus Christ was. He
would have been just another failed mes-
siah, yet His resurrection is what fueled the
early Christians to continue propagating
this message when they had no incentive to
do so unless it was true. That for me was
definitely a highlight.
TOS: Do you think there will be more
Drive Thru History adventures in the
Dave: I know there will be. We are in
preproduction of an Acts series now.
We’re going to roll right from the Gospels
into all those dramatic stories you read
in Acts. There will be another eighteen
shows. I think the working title is Acts
and the First Christians, and it will take
us all over Turkey, Greece, Malta, Rome,
and then, of course, Israel.
It matters whether or not these events
took place in time/space history.
