Here's a version of the Easter story you've probably never heard before.

A reporter for WKYT in Kentucky live-tweeted Easter pretending he was a journalist in AD 33 covering the resurrection of Jesus.

From Saturday through Sunday, Phil Pendleton tweeted the events of "Resurrection Day" as if he were traveling alongside Mary Magdalene, Peter, Thomas and other biblical figures.

We've included a few of Pendleton's dozens of tweets below. One word: dedication.
