Rebroadcast of the long-running radio program, "The Ave Maria Hour," a presentation of the Franciscan Friars of the Atonement. www.AtonementFriars.org
In this powerful episode, the story of Jesus’ trip from Bethany to Jerusalem is told through the lens of two people in the desert.
A crippled Bedouin Arab chieftain, traveling through the desert to find the "Miracle Worker," is abandoned by his caretaker brother and left to die so he could take over the tribe. Rachel, a follower of the Nazarene, finds the chief near death in the desert, hungry and thirsty. She learns the chief was on the road seeking Jesus’ healing. She reveals that she has already been healed from a sinful life by Jesus. Rachel leaves to find food and returns worried that the townspeople are plotting to imprison the so-called Messiah. She wants to warn Jesus of what awaits Him in Jerusalem. The chief is more interested in finding Jesus so he will cure his lameness.
Jesus tells the chief that he must first forgive his brother before he can be truly healed.
