Get your binge on this weekend in a "holy" way.
It's almost Good Friday and Easter weekend!
You may be getting ready to lay out a chocolate Easter egg hunt for the kids in your lives, or maybe you're planning a nice Easter brunch, or you'll be at your chosen place of worship to celebrate the religious side of the holiday.
Either way, Easter is a holiday we all look forward to for one reason or another. For me, it's the celebration of chocolate on sale everywhere - and the warmer spring weather.
Since it's a holiday weekend, and the most of you are likely gonna post up on your couch and spend some quality time with Netflix (don't worry, I will be too), here are some Jesus-related titles to stream this weekend!
