If you were selecting a dozen people to carry on a mission to reach the whole world, how would you do it? Hire a head-hunting firm? Conduct a national search? What about a reality show?

Jesus’ approach is a little more direct. He meets them and he invites them. He doesn’t answer all of their questions. He gives them a taste of who he is, and invites them to join on the journey.

Join us as we discuss the calling of the twelve in this week’s episode of the Jesus Roundtable show!

How do you tempt the son of God? The answer, it turns out, is exactly the same way you tempt me or you!

This week’s show looks at the temptations of Jesus in the wilderness. We leave the mountaintop experience of baptism and go into a time of hunger, isolation, and weariness. We watch in awe as Jesus dismisses the Tempter and learn a bit about how to deal with our own temptations.
