Why Do We Celebrate Easter
March 21, 2008
MEDIA ADVISORY, (christiansunite.com) -- This exciting announcement is part of "Easter: The Story," a free Audio Bible program produced by Faith Comes By Hearing, the world leader in Audio Bible recordings, and is available for download at FaithComesByHearing.com. From the ministry website, listeners can download their copy of this Audio Bible story in either .MP3 or .wav format.
Taken from the New Testament book of Mark, this realistic audio recording was produced using multiple character voices, musical backgrounds and sound effects, adding excitement and emotion to the Scriptures. Faith Comes By Hearing produced this short program, which runs less than 11 minutes, to help people engage in the Bible and hear the Easter story in a dramatic, audio format.
"We want to help people answer life's most important questions," said Jon D. Wilke, organizational spokesperson. "Questions such as 'Who was Jesus?,' 'How did He die?' and 'Why do people celebrate Easter?'
"Podcasts and MP3 downloads are modern, relevant ways people can use technology to engage in God's Word and answer those pressing questions," Wilke said. "Families can gather together, listen and enjoy this stirring Bible story. People can use this to share their faith and express the meaning of this holiday with their children, friends and family."
Since being founded in 1972, Faith Comes By Hearing has been diligently working to share God's Word with illiterate and underdeveloped communities around the world. Because more than 50 percent of the world's population is unable to read, Faith Comes By Hearing helps others hear God's Word in their heart language by recording and using dramatized Audio Bibles. Using the latest digital technologies, this ministry has developed effective tools that make God's Word accessible to those with the least access.
Currently, Faith Comes By Hearing has New Testament recordings available in more than 280 languages, representing nearly 4.3 billion people or roughly 70 percent of the world's population. Along with our prestigious partners, Faith Comes By Hearing is working to record an Audio Bible in 2,000 new languages by the year 2016, which would reach 97% of the world's population.
