The life of Jesus as recorded in the Gospels takes a very focused view on the ‘mission’ of Jesus as an anticipated Messiah figure. Watch this docu-drama based on the Gospels to get a sense of the expectations of the Jewish people and the conflict that Jesus created within the religious system of his day and the Roman government ruling over Judea.
Try to answer these questions:
1. What were the common peoples expectations of Jesus?
2. What did Jesus say was his mission? What kinds of things did he teach?
3. Why did Jesus make conflict for religious Jews & ruling Romans?
