THIS WEEK: Studying the life of Jesus enables us to be "pruned" so that we are more fruitful. This week we explore:

- What "pruning" actually looks like and how it is connected to God's word

- How Jesus said we are to be aware of the resistance we will face.

- How Jesus' own family resisted Him (particularly His brothers)

- How Jesus' perseverance resulted in two of His brothers becoming leaders in the church and writing letters that are in the bible.
