Franciscan Father Hilarion Kistner answers these scriptural questions: Did Jesus have to die to accomplish our salvation? Why did God wait millions of years from the creation of humanity to send Jesus to us? What does Jesus mean when he says that people will no longer be married after our bodies are resurrected? Why wasn't Moses permitted to enter the Promised Land?
