What Happens in this Episode?

In this week’s Jesus Stories episode, we continue telling the narrative of Jesus’ ministry in Galilee. We start in Capernaum – Jesus’ home base – where he teaches and, again, confronts an evil spirit. This is followed by more teaching and lots of healings. We’ll see two well-known healings: Peter’s mother-in-law and the man let down through the roof of an over-crowded house. Jesus calls Levi (Matthew) and then attends a party which Levi throws for him. In these last instances, Jesus confronts the attitudes of the Pharisees and the teachers of the Law.

Here is a reference map of the region covered in today’s show.

WHAT HAPPENS IN THIS EPISODE:

This episode of Jesus Stories concludes the interview we started with Dennis about a month ago (Episode #3-16 Encounter with Evil). Dennis shares how with the help of his newfound Savior, Jesus, he begins to overcome the evil which has been tormenting him. Because of the length of the interview, this episode is a bit longer than what I usually post. But, it is important to hear the whole story and understand the victory he is enjoying.

And she challenged society to follow Jesus when society would rather not! Listen to find out who this woman is!

What Happens In This Episode?

A man of faith is chosen by another man of faith to put his faith to the test. Can he keep his cool when he is being verbally insulted due to his race? Can he not fight back when racism keeps him out of restaurants and hotels and decent travel accommodations? Can he work with white players and fans and not lash out when they abuse him? He could. And he did! And he paved the way for a new world not only in sports, but also in the world. In doing so, he told his own Jesus Story. (You’ll also get to hear the hit song, Did You See Jackie Robinson Hit That Ball? by Count Basie’s band.)
