Jesus Responding to the Culture / UNDERSTANDING JESUS

When we think about the times of Jesus and the powerful messages he shared and left behind experts will say it is imperative that we take into consideration the culture and times in which he lived. Surrounded by ancient Jewish traditions; customs and events we know that many of the parables Jesus used and the life he lived was based on the Jewish culture around him. Bible Scholar Joe Amaral has taken it upon himself to delve into some of those events and cultural traditions of that time and has put together this resourceful Documentary entitled Understanding Jesus. Using expert commentary and dramatizations, Joe guides the viewer through some of the significant events of Jesus' life and sheds some new light on God's written word.

Well throughout this month, we're showing you short segments from this Understanding Jesus documentary. Today Joe Amaral and his team explore a very well-known scripture Matthew 7:24-28 where Jesus speaks about the wise and foolish builder comparing the one who would build on the rock and the person who would choose to build on sand. The context of this scripture is fascinating as Jesus was making a comment about the present culture and what he was observing at the time.

Dear God, sometimes my "testing" season seems so long. Please give me courage to endure until the end. Help me not to bail! You said you would bless me for hanging in there - I will not give up on you or your promises. You are with me and will see me through this trial.
