Description

The second episode of the engaging animated series is about the life of Jesus.

In this second episode of the Following Jesus series, we see Jesus performing miracles. The sick are brought to Jesus to be healed, as he gains many followers eager to hear his teachings.

We also see the calling of the tax collector Matthew to be a disciple. Tax collectors were despised as money-grabbing sinners, and Jesus' followers look on confused as Jesus befriends such a hated individual and invites him to eat together.

"Healthy people don't need a doctor, but sick people do. I didn't come to invite good people to be my followers, I came to invite sinners."

Possible Discussion Questions

  • What did Jesus mean when he said, "I didn't come to invite good people, I came to invite sinners."
  • Jesus often spent time with the people in society who were outcasts or looked down on - how can this challenge us about the way we treat others?
