A timeless story of relentless love! While Jesus’ story may be familiar, his actions are unexpected. He befriends outcasts and heals the hurting. He challenges social norms and confronts hypocrisy.

From the streets of Jerusalem to the raging Sea of Galilee, there’s no place—and no person—that his love can’t reach.
