In episode 6 of the Bible Series Podcast, the sun rises over Jerusalem. The night before, Jesus shared his last meal with his disciples and tells them, to their shock and horror, that He will be killed.

For generations, the Pharisees—guardians of the Jewish faith—have guided the people of Israel. Deeply respected by the people, the Pharisees believe the wellbeing of the nation depends strictly on observing and upholding the laws given to Moses by God.
What will happen when opposing opinions arise? What of the teachings of this young, wise rabbi who teaches of God’s love, forgiveness an
