What Happens in this Episode

This week’s Jesus Stories episode will delve deeper into two statements Jesus made last week. We talk about Jesus claim that “you must be born again” and his statement that he “came down from heaven.” What do these claims really mean for you and me? How should they impact our lives if we believe them?

What Happens in This Episode?

In this week’s Jesus Stories, we listen in to a conversation between Nicodemus and Jesus – a conversation which occurred under the cover of darkness. Nicodemus, as one of the religious leaders of the Jewish people, had some deep questions for Jesus; and Jesus has some deeper answers for Nicodemus. We’ll delve into the conversation, explaining what is going on as it occurs.

This conversation will take us further into understanding the Holy Spirit and the idea of being “born again.” We’ll look at what is probably the most quoted verse from the scriptures and think about the meaning of that verse. And we’ll wrap up with some of the images from the Old Testament which Jesus used to communicate his message to Nicodemus. (You may need to look these scriptures up from the links below.)

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.

Two notes about Dennis:

What Happens in this Episode?

This week’s Jesus Stories, “In the Desert”, cements the author’s validation of the identity of Jesus. John the Baptist points at Jesus calling him the Messiah. While Matthew and Luke show Jesus confrontation with Satan in which Satan loses and Jesus wins. To them, anyone who can stand against Satan, could only be the Messiah.

In this Jesus Stories episode, we dig into the events we talked about in the last episode. What do they mean? What can we learn from them? How do Simeon, Anna, and the Wise Men illustrate Biblical hope? How does the flight into Egypt illustrate the principle of “Do not worry?”

This episode of Jesus Stories continues in the birth stories of both John the Baptist and Jesus. Both mothers – Elizabeth and Mary – give birth in special circumstances.

What Happens in this Episode

Welcome to Season Four of Jesus Stories. We are going back to the scriptures – to the beginning of Jesus Stories – to retell and to explain more deeply the life of Jesus. Still working from a chronological viewpoint, we’ll tell the story from the scriptures as we have done in the past, and then, in the next episode, expand on the story with more insights and teachings.

We start in this new season at the same place the gospels begin – prior to the birth of Jesus. We’ll hear the stories of Elizabeth and Mary and the babies which God gives to each of them.
