Episode 13: I Am He - Part 2

On the way to Samaria, Jesus encounters an ostracized woman at Jacob's Well and announces that He is the Messiah. This episode reveals God as someone who breaks down barriers between us and Him, and between us and other people.

Episode 12: I Am He - Part 1

Jesus and His students attend a dinner party with the outcasts of Capernaum. Nicodemus wrestles with his choices, and Peter's household experiences another miracle. In this episode, we see how Jesus truly sees our hearts and all that we go through.

Episode 11: Invitations

Matthew struggles to reconcile the miracles he has witnessed with reality, and Nicodemus meets with Jesus by night. This episode explores the parallels between the healing bronze serpent of the Exodus and the healing Jesus has come to bring to a divided world.

Episode 10: Indescribable Compassion - Part 2

Nicodemus challenges Shmuel on the box he has placed God in, and a woman forces her paralytic friend through the crowd to encounter Jesus while He is teaching. In this episode, we look at how Jesus taught and how scripture can be misused in the interpretation of scripture.

Episode 9: Indescribable Compassion - Part 1

A marginalized leper approaches Jesus for healing on the road to Capernaum. This episode dives deeper into God's life-giving power--His willingness to share it and its 'disruptive' effects.

Peter shares with Eden about his encounter with Jesus, Nicodemus interrogates John the Baptizer, and Jesus and his students make their way to a wedding celebration in Cana. This episode zeroes in on the 'awakening' of the various characters portrayed to the true identity God is calling them to.

Simon spends one last night fishing in a desperate attempt to square his debts. Andrew spots a familiar face waiting for them on the shores of Galilee. This episode explores parallels between Israel and Jesus in their roles as Sons of God.

Episode 5: The Rock On Which It Is Built - Part 1

With his life and family under threat from Rome, and his sick mother-in-law moving in to his home, Simon is out of options. And that is precisely where God wants Him to be.

Episode 4: Jesus Loves The Little Children

Jesus befriends and teaches the group of children who discover His camp on the outskirts of Capernaum. In this episode, we explore the intensity of emotion as Jesus pleads with His Heavenly Father, and delights in the receptivity of His first little students.

Episode 3: Shabbat

Matthew validates Simon's claims with Praetor Quintus, Nicodemus investigates the miracle reported in the Red Quarter, and Mary receives surprise guests at her Shabbat dinner. In this episode, we take a closer look at the Sabbath and its links to Creation and Exodus.

Episode 2: I Have Called You By Name - Part 2
