It’s time to encounter the authentic Jesus! In this fresh and innovative series of short teaching films, Church leader and gifted communicator Andy Frost asks us to take a new look at Jesus. Is he the Jesus we think we know?
Built around remarkably authentic dramatic enactments of Jesus’ life combined with Frost’s incisive biblical commentary, each 12-15 minute episode will peel away our safe and sanitized views of Jesus and reveal the original Jesus of the Gospels. This series is ideal for small group discussion, Christian education classes, high school and college groups. A PDF study guide is included. Disc 1 includes these three episodes: Episode 1: Underdog (Based on Matthew 4:18-22) – Jesus was born poor and, by some accounts, illegitimate, in a feeding trough, inside a dank barn. When the authorities tried to kill the little boy, the family fled and became asylum-seeking refugees. Jesus was truly an underdog and he chose to associate with other underdogs. In this installment of Jesus Revealed, teacher Andy Frost says, ‘Coming to terms with the ‘underdog Jesus’ changes everything about how we see him and how we see ourselves.’ Episode 2: Revolutionary (Based on Luke 4:14-30, John 2:13-20) – In this installment, Andy Frost asks us to put aside our sanitized views of Jesus the nice guy, and confronts us with the Jesus who turned over tables and screamed against hypocrisy, the Jesus who crossed racial and gender divides and who purposely and publicly broke religious laws. Episode 3: Hero (Based on Matthew 27:24-54) – Jesus is the greatest hero we could ever hope to follow. But this hero is different from the others. His greatest accomplishments appears to be a horrendous defeat. In this installment, Andy Frost takes us inside the brutal reality of Jesus’ execution and urges us to see it for what it is: the greatest event in history.
