Episode 1: Amazed And Afraid: The Revelation of God Become Man. (50 minutes) The strange and dangerous word of Jesus of Nazareth set up a drama that will culminate in a surprising battle between two kings and in wake of this conflict an empire will be defeated and the world will be changed. We journey with Fr. Robert Barron to the mysterious and sacred sites of the Holy Land. From Caesarea Philippi, to the Sea of Galilee to Jerusalem and finally to the eternal city of Rome, Fr. Barron illuminates and explains the conviction of the Catholic faith that Jesus of Nazareth is the promised Messiah and the revelation of God become man in Christ. He shows how Jesus fulfills the four tasks of Messiah, according to the Old and New Testaments, and how the living legacy of Christ, God and Messiah, is proclaimed by the Church. Join Fr. Barron as he addresses some of the most controversial questions about the life and identity of Jesus Christ and travels through the mysterious and sacred places of the Holy Land of Israel and the eternal city of Rome. Episode 2: Happy Are We: The Teachings of Jesus. (53 minutes) The revelation of Jesus as God is accompanied by a stunning invitation to a unique new way of life, explained in the teaching of Jesus. To every generation, the words of Jesus have proven fascinating, disorienting, sometimes confounding, deeply transformative, and always unforgettable. Fr. Barron highlights the Beatitudes, the path of non-violence and lessons of forgiveness. Care for the poor and our relationship with God are presented in the parables. Jesus' teachings are illuminated during Fr. Barron's pilgrimage from Galilee to Krakow, Warsaw, New York City, Kampala and beyond and presents throughout what it means to be a disciple of Christ.
