We will look at the power that kept the people going in the midst of battle, the innovation of a metal prosthetic, and the impact of jealousy and the harm it can cause to knowledge and understanding.We will then take a step into the teacher's personally informed perspectives in regards to this God, his children, and what these stories might mean for us in a modern practice.
