Episode Info: In a surprising turn of events, The Case for Christ is not that bad a movie.  The story is decent, the acting is good and the cinematography is solid. They even manage to pull off a pretty accurate period piece, as the movie takes place in the early 1980s.  However, how does it do on the pieces of silver scale?

This does not sit well with Lee so he sets out to disprove his wife’s newly found faith only to find that Jesus is in fact real.
