Welcome to Resurrection Life of Jesus Church. We are a Bible centered group of believers who desire to grow in the full knowledge of Jesus Christ without compromise to His Word. We believe, teach and practice all things that Jesus taught and were practiced by the Church in the book of the Acts of the Apostles. Jesus called his disciples to be salt and light. Salt is a preservative but it is also something that adds savor and enjoyment to our daily food. Light is a symbol of truth; it is comforting, penetrating, guiding and exposes darkness. We seek to preserve biblical truth and shed the glorious light of the Gospel in a world that is consumed by darkness.

ABOUT THE VIDEO
The Gospel of Matthew was authored by one of the twelve apostles selected by Jesus. He was a publican from Galilee and universally hated by the Israelites because of the heavy tax burden he imposed on behalf of the Romans.
The Seleucid Empire, Hasmonean and Herodian crime families, Sadducees, Pharisees, and the Roman Empire were all responsible for the sensational storyline that involved political power, intrigue, greed, betrayal, war, death, and destruction. The Israelites were caught in the middle of the Hasmonean power struggles, Roman civil wars, and had a descendant of Esau as their king.
After a couple centuries of these conditions, it seemed like there was no hope left. The people longed for a Messiah that would re-establish the Kingdom of Israel and drive out the invaders. This was the world of the apostles and is it any wonder then why these men wanted to know when Jesus would restore the kingdom to Israel?
