Jesus and the Roots of Conflict (Part 2)

Controversy and conflict seeem to be more and mroe prevalent in our lives. We divide over matters of the church, over politics, over health, and even over others who are themselves fighting. In our post-Christian culture, believers are especially suseptible to finding themselves arguing against the continuing rise of decadence. How can we deal with conflict and controversy in a biblical way? In this multi-part series based on Luke chapter 20, Lenny looks at how Jesus responded to conflict and controversty in his day and offers some tips on how we can use his model to better engage others.

The first two installments are entitled "Jesus and the Roots of Conflict."
