Great American Family Showing Three Programs on Good Friday that Honor the Life, Death, and Resurrection of Jesus

Updated: Mar 13

Great American Family continues to deliver on its promise to offer faith-affirming programming by airing three specials on March 29--Good Friday--that honor Jesus this Easter season.

The Passion Play 2024

The Passion Play 2024 is a musical retelling of the dramatic last week in the life of Jesus and why the promise of the Resurrection makes the name of Jesus the most known throughout the world. This play offers a Broadway-worthy performance and production values.

The Passion Play 2024 airs on Friday, March 29 at 3:45 pm Eastern.

The Museum of the Bible's The History of Easter

Grammy® Award-winning Christian artist, Matthew West (“My Story…Your Glory,” “We Need Christmas”) narrates Museum of the Bible’s fascinating The History of Easter, an entertaining look at everything related to the holiday from how Easter is calendared each year to how colorful eggs and bunnies became part of a global celebration of Spring.

The History of Easter airs on Great American Family on Friday, March 29 from 5-6pm Eastern.

Just in Time

Enjoy the encore presentation of Just in Time (which originally premieres March 26) starring Laura Osnes, Peter Bryant, and Greyston Hold. The movie is the fourth production under the Candace Cameron Bure Presents studio banner.

In Just in Time, Hannah (Osnes) and her husband, Rowan (Holt) have focused all their time, energy, and attention into trying to have a baby. The pressure to complete their family starts weighing heavily on their relationship. The couple is left questioning if having a child is the right thing to do and if they are still right for one another. When Hannah receives a call from a stranger, named Franklin (Bryant), who claims to have discovered an antique on the beach bearing an inscription unique to Hannah and Rowan, she reluctantly agrees to meet him to look. Franklin is certain the watch is a long-lost heirloom from Hannah’s family. In the end, Franklin’s patient approach helps Hannah see that the answers to all she seeks will be revealed in God’s time. 

Bure says of the movie, “In this stunningly aspirational Easter presentation, Laura Osnes and Peter Bryant will bring you to tears... We strive to deliver to our audience deep, meaningful, faith-filled entertainment of the highest quality.”

Just in Time re-airs on Friday, March 29 from 6-8pm Eastern.
