Note: I’m having technical difficulties with the video so, as of now, only the audio version is available (either through the “mike gantt” app or through the player in this browser). If I am able to succeed with the video, I will update this note. Update: Video successfully loaded.
This is another weekly podcast/video. I began these weekly teachings on Saturday, August 15, 2015 and done one each week since then (missing Saturday, October 17th) so that I’ve completed 11 of these teachings.
Today, I continue teaching weekly on Saturday but beginning a new focus. Each Saturday, I’ll focus on the Bible chapters covered in the previous seven days. It’s easier to demonstrate what I’m doing than explain it so I’ll let this podcast episode speak for itself.
As usual, the teaching will remain 30 minutes or less in duration. The numbering sequence will change. The previous episodes were SC125 through SC135. Today’s episode is WT001 (for “weekly teaching”) and will be numbered thusly going forward. (Podcasting technical issues dictated some of these changes.)
This teaching is available to be played in your browser, in the “mike gantt” app for smartphones and tablets (i.e., iOS, Android, and Windows devices), and in the YouTube video below.

Jesus grew up as a first-century Jewish boy living in Palestine with reverent parents. He was taught these stories in synagogue and in the temple. He received a composite view of righteousness. He believed. (How can we believe Genesis? He did!) In our case, however, we have the full composite picture in Him!
We see both sides: 1) Jesus as God 2) Jesus as man. The first is to worship and the second is to imitate.
