Psst... Hey, you! I can trust you, right? Good, because I have something important I want to tell you, but the government has banned the book about it. Even just saying that is probably enough to get me flogged, so if you don't want to hear more, stop now.
There was a man named Jesus who said he was God, which I know sounds crazy. But when I tell you about the people who believed in him and what happened with them, maybe you'll understand why spreading this story is considered so subversive.
So, you want to hear it?
