The Back Story

Ever wonder why, from a first-century perspective (as opposed to a theological one) that Jesus went to the cross and rose from the dead?  Every story has a back story, and the message in this gathering from John 11.45-57 helps us understand it.  It also helps us consider the importance of comparing any new movement against Scripture, keeping our preferences in check, and being mindful of healthy unity.  (The whole service is here; you can skip ahead to 35:50 to watch the message.)
