"Mr. Sceva and His Seven Sons" DVD, the 1996 sermon by Samuel DeWitt Proctor
Today's headlines are filled with scandal and intrigue in the lives of the rich, famous, and powerful. Many individuals and communities are puzzled when children from more affluent families show behaviors such as disrespect, anti-social behavior, and a lack of morals. Too often, stereotypes portray young people who come from impoverished backgrounds as society's "misfits." Rev. Dr. Samuel Proctor compares the headlines of today with the story of Mr. Sceva, a chief priest and his seven sons. What kind of breakdown in this family led to the fraudulent schemes of all seven sons despite their father's position in society? Proctor probes the answers to this question by looking at the socio-economic factors and cultural structures of the past and present.
