In this episode, Erica and Steve turn to a strange handful of verses from Matthew's Gospel that tell of seemingly random dead people coming back to life at the moment of Jesus' death on the cross, while darkness fills the skies and the temple curtain is torn.  It sounds like something out of a Halloween-themed zombie movie or an episode of "The Walking Dead," but there it is in the New Testament, right there in Matthew 27!  What on earth is this story all about, and why did the early church hold onto it?  Join us for a conversation about the way God's power for life breaks out all over the place and overflows even in the moments where it looks like death wins.
