Today, in the West, it might be hard to imagine what it means to have to keep our faith a secret. But there are two secret disciples in the Easter story - Nicodemus and Joseph of Arimathea. They enjoyed power and prestige among the religious elite - but had to keep their love for Jesus quiet. In this episode, Dan helps us understand how courage looks different on different people in different situations.

By including these men in the Easter story, God shows us how he works in mysterious ways to accomplish his purposes in the world.
