	Episode 1 focuses on the Perseverance of Jesus.  The Gospels describe Jesus’ resolve: “<em>He gathered up his courage and steeled himself for the journey to Jerusalem.</em>” (Luke 9:51, Message).  He needed that kind of steeled perseverance because Holy Week had a lot of “dips” – low points that Jesus had to get through.  He persevered.  Our goal is to learn from Jesus and strengthen our own perseverance in our own dips.  Hebrews 12:1-3 says it very well:  “<em>And let us run with endurance the race God has set before us.  We do this by keeping our eyes on Jesus, the champion who initiates and perfects our faith.  Because of the joy awaiting him, he endured the cross, disregarding its shame.  Now he is seated in the place of honor beside God’s throne.  Think of the hostility he endured from sinful people, then you won’t become wary and give up.</em>”  We all have people counting on us not to give up in life’s dips.  May we learn to persevere like Jesus.
