    Prison Break

Suddenly, there was a massive earthquake, and the prison was shaken to its foundations. All the doors immediately flew open, and the chains of every prisoner fell off!” – Acts 16:25-26 The show, “Prison Break,” available on Netflix; is considered a binge worthy TV show.

They also give accounts of his death and resurrection. They are stories that are told every Christmas/Easter. One of my favorite songs at Christmas time when I was little was, “Go Tell It On The Mountain.” I probably didn’t…
