I pray that we can all live in hope through the resurrection of Jesus Christ. This morning, I am a guest on the “Keep Hope Alive” Radio Show with Reverend Jesse L. Jackson Sr.,
Please tune in.
Below is from Rev. Jesse Jackson Sr.
HAPPY EASTER—TODAY the High Holy Day in the Christian calendar in which we celebrate the Resurrection of our Lord and Savior, Jesus the Christ, after his Crucifixion three days before…
This is a time of reflection and gratitude for Christians—we reflect upon our human, sinful natures—while being profoundly grateful that “God so loved the world” that He gave His “only begotten Son” to save the world and all who inhabit it…
But, that version of this story, though important, misses too many important details…
Today on a special Edition of Keep hope alive radio we will talk about Jesus.
Who was Jesus? What was His mission? How did this political revolutionary—charged by the State with “stirring up the people”and killed with the collusion of Church Leaders—whose teachings were meant to free the oppressed, become the tools of oppressors? How did the Gospel of Prosperity take precedence over needs of the poor and the needy? Just how faithful are we all to the teachings and vision of Jesus?
WHO WAS JESUS???
Let’s talk with:
