THE BAKER OF
When Jesus moves from Nazareth to Capernaum, how do local
Amos, the baker of the village, perceive the young rabbi?
Join Amos in his
struggle to understand his new friend.
Although Jesus' teaching and healing are

Do you stand your ground, flee, or give up when facing bullies or problems?

in school, home or street.
It may give new ideas to young soldiers and
police who have to decide in a split second
to shoot or not. Do Christians have the right to defend themselves?
