Who knew modern-day love and breakup songs could be used to explain the greatest story ever told. "The Passion" aired live on FOX Sunday night and the musical successfully took the 2000-year-old account of Jesus' last days on earth, his crucifixion and resurrection, and shared it in a way that was relatable while promoting his message of unconditional love.
Since nothing in modern-day America is as brutal as the roman style crucifixion that Jesus had to endure, "The Passion" avoided dramatizing the vicious torture and death of Christ. The two-hour event, however, made it a point to promote the love Jesus taught his followers while on earth, his thrilling arrest and inspiring resurrection.
The musical included a star-studded cast of Jencarlos Canela (Jesus Christ), Chris Daughtry (Judas), Prince Royce (the disciple Peter), Michael W. Smith (disciple), Seal (Pontius Pilate) and Trisha Yearwood (Mary, the mother of Jesus). more >>

A U.S. presidential visit to the inner sanctum of Cuban power would have been unthinkable before Obama and Raul Castro's rapprochement 15 months ago, when they agreed to end a Cold War-era dispute that lasted five decades and continued even after the collapse of the Soviet Union. more >>
