This Episode’s Topic: REJECTION
To better understand why this topic matters, Jonathan shares the story of Jesus rejection by his family. The gospel writer Mark vividly portrays the rejection of Jesus by his family and by the people in his hometown. Not surprising, however, is the masterful way that Jesus responds. He moves on with his ministry. Tragically, however, Nazareth is portrayed as a lost and sick city.
