Part 01 - The Beginning

In the beginning, God created the heavens and the earth. God made man and woman to be with him, but they disobeyed his command and were separated from him. However, God had a restoration plan. In the holy scriptures and through Abraham and the prophets, God reveals his plan to send a Saviour, the Messiah.

Part 02 - Birth of Jesus

An angel visits a virgin named Mary and tells her she will become pregnant and give birth to a miracle child. She visits her cousin Elizabeth, who will also bear a son called John. Mary’s child, Jesus, is born in Bethlehem. An angel announces the birth to shepherds in the fields, and they come to see the baby.

Part 03 - Childhood of Jesus

The baby is taken to be dedicated to the Lord at the temple in Jerusalem, where Simeon sees him and declares him to be God’s salvation. Twelve years later, at the Passover in Jerusalem, the boy Jesus amazes the temple teachers with his understanding. This account of Christ’s childhood ends with his ’Growing in wisdom and stature and in favour with God and man.’

Part 04 - Baptism of Jesus by John

When Jesus is baptized, the Holy Spirit descends as a dove on him. A voice from heaven declares him to be “My own dear Son.”

The Devil Tempts Jesus

After Jesus has been baptized, full of the Spirit, he's led by the Spirit into the desert. He spends 40 days there, constantly tempted by the devil. All that time, he eats nothing. The devil even uses scripture to tempt Jesus, but Jesus answers him also using Scripture, resisting him.

Jesus Proclaims Fulfillment of the Scriptures

Jesus reads the prophecy of the Lord bringing good news to the poor, proclaiming liberty to the captives, recovery of sight to the blind, freeing the oppressed, and announcing that it's the time the Lord will save His people, all this coming true in him. The enraged listeners want to throw him off a cliff, but he walks away from them.

Parable of the Pharisee and Tax Collector

Jesus speaks in parables, giving the example of a Pharisee and tax collector going to the temple to pray. The two men approach prayer very differently.
