The Prodigal Son
SM011 - A Prophet Without Honor - Jesus returns to his home town. Everyone is excited to see him. They have heard about his teaching and that miracles have even happened. But the excitement gives way to rage when Jesus reads from Isaiah and claims to be Messiah.
SM013 - The Leper and the Paralyzed Man - Defying the ordinance that lepers are to remain outside the city gates, a leper runs to Jesus and asks if He will heal him. The leper has broken the law, but what does Jesus do? On another day Jesus is teaching to a packed house. Four men try to bring their friend, who is paralyzed to Jesus, but they can't get to Him because of the crowds, until they come up with a clever idea.
SM015 - Rise Up and Walk - A man, paralyzed for 38 years meets a man who tells him "rise up and walk." But when he is healed and starts home with his bedroll under his arm, the religious leaders throw a fit because he has broken the Sabbath rules. When they find out that Jesus is the one who told him to take up his bed on the Sabbath, they go on the attack against Jesus.
SM017 - All Night in Prayer - The Pharisees have gathered to plot against Jesus and Jesus has withdrawn to the hills with his disciples. While they sleep, Jesus spends the whole night in prayer. The direction he receives that night in prayer will change the world.
SM019 - The Doubtful Prophet - John the Prophet has been locked in the prison of Herod Antipas in the fortress of Macherus by the Dead Sea. After months of imprisonment and no word from the Messiah and no evidence of the gift of the Spirit, he sends two of his disciples to Jesus with the question, "Are you really the One, or should we look for another?" When the two arrive in Galilee, Jesus gives them an answer they will never forget!
SM012 - A New Kind of Fisherman - Peter, Andrew, James, and John are enjoying a break from minisry and go fishing. They work all night and catch ... nothing. Then Jesus comes and tells them to go back out with him. A fishing miracle takes place, but something more important happens in the heart of Peter.
SM014 - Guess Who's Coming to Dinner - Jesus meet Matthew the tax-collector and asks him to follow Him.

SM016 - The Man with the Withered Hand - Jesus and his disciples enter a synagogue after a morning of controversy with Pharisees about plucking grain on the Sabbath. But the controversy is only starting. A man with a withered hand is in attendance that day. The Pharisees want to know if the Law allows healing on the Sabbath. Jesus tells the man to come forward and then asks some piercing questions.
SM018 - The Centurion's Servant and the Widow's Son - A Roman centurion has befriended the Jewish people. His relationship with them pays off when a favorite servant of his becomes deathly ill. He sends his Jewish friends to Jesus to ask for help and when Jesus comes he marvels at something the centurion says.
SM020 - The Woman Who Wept at Jesus' Feet - Jesus has gone to the house of Simon the Pharisee, but upon his entrance he is insulted by not being given water for his feet, a customary kiss of greeting, and anointing oil for his head. A woman in the crowd watching the lunch is appalled by this public insult and takes matters into her own hands to give the honor to Jesus that he deserves.
