In this program Fr. Nwankwor shares the life and ministry of Jesus Christ and what it means in today’s world. Fr. Nwankwor strives to reveal the face of Christ without ceasing to the world in order to be able to restore and strengthen the Christian values that gave foundation to all human and material progress in the world.
Mountain was a symbol of prayer and of God’s presence. When Jesus Christ scaled the mountain to elect his twelve Apostles, he made such election a prayer event. We saw this pattern repeated in the early Church as they elected other Apostles and deacons. This manner of elections seems to be lost in modern election rigging, cronyism, and nepotism. Hence, public office is fraught with less God-gearing service people. What happens to the method of Christ and the Apostolic style?
Who is being tempted and Jesus Christ was not? (Matt.4:1-10). Jesus passed through all forms of tests and trials. “Tempted in every was like us but did not sin” (Heb.4:15). Heaven watched the drama of the devil trying to entice Jesus Christ with everything that any human could have desired. Finally, Jesus won victory and angels came and ministered to him. Every battle we win on earth against the devil causes hosts of heaven to rejoice in us.
