TODAY...A

FORMER AMERICAN MUSLIM.

I HAD BEEN TAUGHT IT

WAS PEACEFUL.

TALKS ABOUT WHAT ROCKED

HIS WORLD.

IT BECAME ABUNDANTLY

CLEAR WHY PEOPLE COULD BE

SO VIOLENT.

Wendy: AND WHY HE IS

NOW ANSWERING JIHAD.

> PLUS...THE FINAL HOURS

OF JESUS CHRIST, AS TOLD

BY SCULPTOR GILL AMELLIO.

******

Pat: WELL, WELCOME,

LADIES AND GENTLEMEN, TO

THIS EDITION OF "THE 700

CLUB."

WE'RE COMING INTO THE GOOD

FRIDAY/EASTER TIME OF

YEAR, WHEN WE CELEBRATE

THE DEATH AND THE

RESURRECTION OF JESUS.

THE MOST IMPORTANT DAY IN

THE HISTORY OF THE -- THE

CALENDAR OF THE CHURCH, I

SHOULD SAY.

AND WE'RE GOING TO INVITE

YOU, TODAY, ON THIS

PROGRAM, TO SHARE

COMMUNION WITH US.

SO IF YOU HAVE SOME BREAD

AND JUICE OR WINE, YOU GET

THAT AND GET READY TO JOIN

US AS THE PROGRAM

CONTINUES.

Terry: AND AS PART OF

OUR HOLY WEEK TRADITION,

WE'RE GOING TO TAKE AN

UNFORGETTABLE LOOK AT THE

LAST NEW HOURS OF JESUS'

LOVES THROUGH THE

SCULPTURE GILL AMELLIO.

Pat: FIRST IN THE

NEWS, TRAGEDY IN EUROPE.

A MASSIVE MANHUNT IS UNDER

WAY FOR TWO MORE

TERRORISTS WHO MAY HAVE

BEEN INVOLVED IN THE

BRUTAL BOMBINGS OF

BRUSSELS.

THAT COMES AS CRITICS ARE

WONDERING WHEN EUROPEAN

POLITICIANS WILL FINALLY

GET SERIOUS ABOUT CRACKING

DOWN ON RADICAL ISLAM.

GARY LANE HAS THAT STORY.

Reporter: IT IS AN

ALL-TOO-FAMILIAR SCENE IN

EUROPE, ANOTHER MEMORIAL

TO THE VICTIMS OF TERROR.

LAST NOVEMBER IN FRANCE,

AND NOW IN BELGIUM.

MORE CANDLES AND TRIBUTES

AND FRIENDS AND RELATIVES

STILL LOOKING FOR THE

MISSING.

ONE OF THEM IS EMILY IS

HOLM.

I JUST WANT TO KNOW HE

IS OKAY.

AND THAT HIS FAMILY WILL

SEE HIM AGAIN AND I WILL

SEE HIM AGAIN.

Reporter: THE

BRUSSELS' AIRPORT MAY

REOPEN THIS WEEKEND.

IN THE MEANTIME, A MASSIVE

MANHUNT IS UNDER WAY FOR

POSSIBLY TWO TERRORISTS

RESPONSIBLE FOR TUESDAY'S

ATTACK, AND OTHERS WHO MAY

BE PLOTTING MORE ACTS OF

TERROR.

SO FAR POLICE HAVE

IDENTIFIED THE THREE

SUICIDE BOMBERS, AND

DISCOVERED THAT ONE OF

THEM, 24-YEAR-OLD NACH NAJIM

LAACHRAOUI WAS ALSO

INVOLVED IN THE TERROR

ATTACKS IN PARIS.

THE QUESTION NOW: HOW MANY

MORE ISLAMIC TERRORISTS

ARE OUT THERE, AND WAS

THIS PART OF A MUCH

LARGER-SCALE OPERATION?

EUROPEAN AND IRAQI

INTELLIGENCE ESTIMATE AT

LEAST 400 ISIS FIGHTERS

HAVE BEEN TRAINED TO

LAUNCH A DEADLY WAVE OF

ATTACK THROUGHOUT EUROPE.

SOME MAY HAVE ENTERED

EUROPE AS THE MASSIVE WAVE

OF MIGRANTS FROM THE

MIDDLE EAST.

SO WHAT SHOULD BE DONE

NOW?

SOME SAY DESPITE ALL OF

THE TERROR ATTACKS IN THE

LAST SEVERAL YEARS,

EUROPEAN GOVERNMENTS HAVE

BEEN TOO LAX IN RECENT

YEARS AND NEED TO WISEN

UP.

MEMBERS OF THE PARLIAMENT

ARE GATHERING FOR AN

EMERGENCY SESSION.

AND U.S. SECRETARY OF

STATE, JOHN KERRY, IS ON

HIS WAY TO EUROPE.

HE'LL BE SPENDING GOOD

FRIDAY IN BRUSSELS,

SHARING THE CONDOLENCES OF

THE AMERICAN PEOPLE.

AND BELGIANS, LIKE THIS

MAN, FEAR THEIR LIVES WILL

NEVER BE THE SAME.

I DON'T KNOW HOW LONG

WE CAN TAKE THIS.

WE HAVE CHILDREN.

WE HAVE WIVES.

Reporter: GARY LANE,

CBN NEWS.

Pat: WE HAVE CHILDREN

AND WIVES.

JUST THINK ABOUT IT, EVERY

TIME YOU GO TO WORK, YOU

NEVER KNOW IF YOU'RE GOING

TO GET BLOWN UP?

IT IS A HORRIBLE PROSPECT.

YOU CAN'T STAND THAT.

WE'VE GOT AN EXPERT THAT

KNOWS ABOUT THAT COMING UP

ON THIS PROGRAM LATER ON.

WE'RE GOING TO DISCUSS

EXACTLY WHAT THE EUROPEAN

NATIONS SHOULD BE DOING.

> HERE AT HOME IT'S A

SUPREME COURT CASE THAT

COULD HAVE MAJOR

IMPLICATIONS FOR RELIGIOUS

FREEDOM IN AMERICA.

THE PLAINTIFF IS CALLED

"THE LITTLE SISTERS OF THE

POOR."

AND THEY'RE TAKING ON

OBAMACARE BECAUSE THEY SAY

THE GOVERNMENT IS FORCING

THEM TO VIOLATE THEIR

RELIGIOUS BELIEFS ON

CONTRACEPTION AND

ABORTION.

ABIGAIL ROBERTSON BRINGS

US THAT STORY.

Reporter: PROVIDE

YOUR EMPLOYEES WITH

CONTRACEPTIVES ON THEIR

HEALTH INSURANCE OR FACE

MILLIONS OF DOLLARS IN

FINES, THAT'S THE CHOICE

THE FEDERAL GOVERNMENT

GAVE 175-YEAR-OLD CATHOLIC

NON-PROFIT CALLED "THE

LITTLE SISTERS OF THE

POOR."

IT'S A SMALL GROUP OF

WOMEN WHO HAVE VOWED THEIR

LIVES TO CARE FOR THE

ELDERLY.

WE FIND OURSELVES IN

THIS SITUATION BECAUSE THE

FEDERAL GOVERNMENT HAS

MANDATED THAT WE CHANGE

OUR HEALTH CARE PLANS TO

INCLUDE SERVICES THAT ARE

IN CLEAR VIOLATION OF OUR

CATHOLIC FAITH.

Reporter: THE SISTERS

WERE PROMISED THEIR

RELIGIOUS BELIEFS WOULD BE

PROTECTED, AND THEN THE

GOVERNMENT CREATED A NEW

MANDATE, REQUIRING THEM TO

PROVIDE CONTRACEPTIVES,

INCLUDING MORNING-AFTER

PILLS, WHICH MANY

CATHOLICS VIEW AS

SYNONYMOUS TO ABORTION,

AND FEEL MORALLY COMPELLED

NOT TO FUND.

LAWYERS FOR THE SISTERS

AND OTHER GROUPS ARGUED

THIS CASE AFFECTS THE

RELIGIOUS FREEDOMS FOR ALL

AMERICANS.

WHAT IS AT STAKE IN

THIS CASE IS WHETHER OR

NOT THE FEDERAL GOVERNMENT

CAN FORCE THE LITTLE

SISTERS TO VIOLATE THEIR

FAITH.

AND IF THEY DON'T DO IT,

IF THEY DON'T DO WHAT THE

FEDERAL GOVERNMENT WANTS,

THE FEDERAL GOVERNMENT IS

GOING TO CHARGE THEM

$70 MILLION PER YEAR.

THE STAKES AREN'T JUST FOR

THE LITTLE SISTERS.

FRANKLY, IT IS FOR EVERY

AMERICAN.

BECAUSE IF THE FEDERAL

GOVERNMENT CAN FORCE NUNS

THAT TAKE CARE OF ELDERLY

POOR PEOPLE -- IF THEY CAN

FORCE THEM TO VIOLATE

THEIR FAITH, THEY CAN

FORCE ANY AMERICAN TO

VIOLATE THEIR FAITH.

Reporter: THE SISTERS

ARE ASKING FOR A

GOVERNMENT EXEMPTION THAT

ONE IN THREE AMERICANS

ALREADY HAVE.

IT WOULD LET THEM KEEP

THEIR EXISTING HEALTH CARE

PLANS THAT DO NOT COVER

CONTRACEPTIVES.

THAT EXEMPTION COVERS MANY

BIG BUSINESSES, SMALL

FIRMS, AND RELIGIOUS

EMPLOYERS, ALONG WITH

CHURCHES AND SYNAGOGUES,

BUT NOT RELIGIOUS

EMPLOYERS LIKE FAITH-BASED

SCHOOLS AND NON-PROFITS.

SUPPORTERS OF THE

OBAMACARE MANDATE SAY IT

WILL BE WRONG FOR GROUPS

LIKE THE LITTLE SISTERS

AND OTHERS TO FORCE OTHER

PEOPLE TO LIVE BY THEIR

RELIGIOUS BELIEFS BY

DENYING THEM

CONTRACEPTIVES.

THERE ARE MANY WOMEN

WHO USE IT FOR OTHER

REASONS, AND THOSE WHO USE

IT FOR BIRTH CONTROL, AND

THEY SHOULD HAVE ACCESS TO

IT.

Reporter: BUT THEIR

SISTERS AND THEIR

SUPPORTERS ARGUE THEIR

NON-CATHOLIC EMPLOYEES

KNOW WHAT THEY'RE SIGNING

UP FOR.

WE CHOOSE THE PLACES WE

WORK IN.

IF YOU DON'T WANT IT, THEN

DON'T WORK FOR THE LITTLE

SISTERS OF THE POOR.

Reporter: THE

DECISION IS EXPECTED TO BE

RELEASED IN THE COMING

MONTHS, UNLESS JUSTICE

SCALIA'S ABSENCE RESULTS

IN A TIE, WHICH COULD THEN

SEND THE CASE TO THE LOWER

COURTS.

ABIGAIL ROBERTSON, CBN

NEWS.

Pat: HOW WOULD YOU

LIKE TO BE A FAT-CAT

BUREAUCRAT IN WASHINGTON,

AND YOUR OPPONENT IS THE "THE

LITTLE SISTERS OF THE

POOR"?

HOW HORRIBLE CAN IT BE,

WHAT THESE PEOPLE ARE

DOING IN WASHINGTON?

FOLKS, THAT IS THE KEY TO

LIBERALISM.

YOU HAVE TO REMEMBER,

LIBERALS ARE NOT LIBERALS.

THE PROGRESSIVES ARE

INTERESTED IN ENFORCING

YOUR POINT OF VIEW ON YOU,

WHETHER YOU LIKE IT OR

NOT.

IF YOU DON'T LIKE IT OR

YOU DON'T COMPLY, THEN

YOU'RE GOING TO BE PUT IN

PRISON OR YOUR GOING TO BE

FINED.

THAT IS PROGRESSIVE

LIBERALISM.

THAT'S BERNIE SANDERS AND

HILLARY CLINTON.

THAT'S THEIR PHILOSOPHY:

WE'RE GOING TO MAKE YOU DO

WHAT WE WANT YOU TO DO.

IT IS NO LONGER VOLUNTARY.

YOU'RE NOT IN A FREE

SOCIETY ANYMORE.

YOU'RE UNDER OUR MANDATE

BECAUSE WE KNOW BETTER.

WE'RE SMARTER THAN YOU

ARE, AND WE'RE GOING TO

MAKE THIS A BETTER WORLD.

AND WE'LL DO IT BY FORCING

YOU TO COMPLY WITH WHAT WE

WANT BECAUSE WE ARE THE OH, BOY, WHEN

YOU GO TO THE POLLS, KEEP

THAT UP MIND.

Terry: NABEEL QURESHI

ANSWERS TOUGH QUESTIONS

THAT TELLS THE TRUTH ABOUT

JIHAD, AFTER THIS.

Pat: WELL, IF YOU

WANT TO KNOW WHETHER ISLAM

IS A RELIGION OF PEACE,

ASK SOMEONE WHO STUDIED IT

EXTENSIVELY FROM THE

INSIDE.

SOMEONE LIKE OUR NEXT

GUEST, NABEEL QURESHI.

TAKE A LOOK.

Reporter: NABEEL

QURESHI GREW UP IN A

LOVING, AMERICAN MUSLIM

FAMILY.

AS A DEVOUT FOLLOWER OF

MUHAMMAD, HE MEMORIZED

PORTIONS OF THE QURAN AND

BELIEVED ISLAM TO BE A

RELIGION OF PEACE.

BUT ALL THAT CHANGED ON

SEPTEMBER 11TH, 2001.

HIS SEARCH FOR ANSWERS

ABOUT ISLAM ULTIMATELY LED

NABEEL TO FAITH IN JESUS

CHRIST.

TODAY, WITH TERRORISM IN

THE NAME OF ALLAH ON THE

RISE, NABEEL TACKLES THE

HOT-BUTTON ISSUE OF

MODERN-DAY JIHAD IN A NEW

BOOK "ANSWERING JIHAD, A

BETTER WAY FORWARD."

Pat: NABEEL QURESHI

JOINS US TO TALK ABOUT HIS

BOOK, "ANSWERING JIHAD."

NABEEL, EUROPE IS IN

CHAOS.

ATTACKS IN LONDON, ATTACKS

IN MADRID, ATTACKS IN

BRUSSELS, ATTACKS IN

PARIS.

ARE THESE ISOLATED

INCIDENTS?

OR DO THEY SPRING OUT OF

THE QURAN ITSELF?

THAT'S A GREAT

QUESTION.

WE HAVE TO KNOW THAT ALL

OF THESE ATTACKS ARE BEING

TRACED BACK TO THE SAME

MOVEMENT.

PEOPLE SAID THEY WANTED TO

FOLLOW THE QURAN IN THE

HADITH.

THAT HAS LED TO, THROUGH

THE MUSLIM BROTHERHOOD,

ALL OF THESE ATTACKS WE'RE

SEEING WITH al-QAEDA AND

BOKO HARAM -- THEY TRACE

IT BACK TO THE QURAN.

Pat: THEY ARE

APPARENTLY VERY RELUCTANT

TO NAME THIS AS IT IS.

IS THAT FOR FEAR OF

OFFENDING THE BROADER ARAB

COMMUNITY OR THEY JUST

DON'T KNOW ANY BETTER?

I THINK IT IS MORE THAN

JUST FEAR OF OFFENSE.

MY FAMILY IS STILL MUSLIM,

AND WHENEVER I NOTICED

ANTI-MUSLIM SENSITIVITIES

RISING IN THE AREA, I

WORRY ABOUT MY FAMILY.

THAT'S PART OF THE REASON

I WROTE THIS BOOK, TO LET

PEOPLE KNOW THOU NOT TO FEAR

MUSLIMS.

BUT AT THE SAME TIME, WE

SHOULD HOLD COMPASSION IN

INTENTION WITH THE TRUTH.

THE MUSLIMS WHO ARE

VIOLENT ARE DOING IT

BECAUSE OF THE QURAN, BUT

THAT DOESN'T MEAN WE

SHOULD ACCUSE ALL MUSLIMS

OF BEING VIOLENT.

Pat: YOU HAVE THIS

ISIS -- HAVE YOU THOUGHT

THROUGH WHAT SHOULD BE

DONE?

SHOULD WE HAVE A MAJOR

MILITARY CAMPAIGN TO TRY

TO WIPE THEM OUT?

WE NEED TO SEPARATE OUT

BETWEEN A STATE RESPONSE

AND A PERSONAL RESPONSE.

FOR THOSE OF US WHO ARE

CHRISTIAN IN THE WEST, I

THINK IF WE'RE PART OF THE

STATE, WE SHOULD WRESTLE

WITH QUESTIONS OF WHETHER

WE SHOULD GO TO WAR OR

NOT.

FOR THE VAST MAJORITY OF

US WHO ARE CHRISTIANS, I

THINK WE SHOULDN'T BE

RESPONDING OUT OF FEAR.

I THINK CHRIST TELLS US TO

SEE THE WORLD THROUGH A

LENS OF LOVE AND NOT FEAR.

THAT'S HOW WE SHOULD BE

SEEING THE REFUGEES WHO

ARE COMING TO THE WEST.

Pat: OKAY.

IN YOUR CASE, YOU WERE A

DEVOUT, PRACTICING,

OBSERVANT MUSLIM.

SOMETHING CHANGED YOU?

IN MY CASE I MET A

CHRISTIAN FRIEND WHO WAS

ABLE TO DEFEND THE BIBLE,

AND WHO WAS ABLE TO

EXPLAIN TO ME WHY JESUS

DIED ON THE CROSS AND ROSE

FROM THE DEAD.

IT WAS AT THE SAME TIME AS

9/11 THAT I WAS LOOKING

INTO THESE THINGS.

AND I REALIZED THE FAITH I

THOUGHT IT WAS A RELIGION

OF PEACE, ACTUALLY WASN'T

AT ITS CORE.

AND HAVING THE GOSPEL AS

AN OPTION MADE ALL OF THE

DIFFERENCE IN THE WORLD.

Pat: I HAD A LITTLE

TIFF WITH PRESIDENT GEORGE

BUSH WHEN YOU MENTIONED

ISLAM IS A RELIGION OF

PEACE.

IS IT A RELIGION OF PEACE?

ISLAM STARTS OUT -- THE

23 YEARS THAT MUHAMMAD

TAUGHT, THE FIRST 13 WERE

PEACEFUL.

THAT'S BECAUSE HE DIDN'T

HAVE AN ARMY.

IT WAS IN THE LAST NINE TO

10 YEARS HE HAD AN ARMY.

IN THE NINE TO 10 YEARS,

HE LAUNCHED 86 BATTLES,

AND THEY GOT INCREASINGLY

MORE AND MORE INTENSE.

Pat: HE WAS A WARRIOR

AND LAUNCHED 86 BATTLES IN

THAT SHORT LENGTH OF TIME?

ABOUT NINE PER YEAR IN

THE LAST YEARS OF HIS

LIFE.

AND, LIKE I SAID, THEY GOT

MORE AND MORE INTENSE,

UNTIL THE TIME HE DIED.

WHICH IS WHY THE LAST

MAJOR CHAPTER OF THE QURAN

IS THE MOST VIOLENT.

CHAPTER NINE OF THE QURAN.

Pat: THE SCHOLARS

TALKED ABOUT ADNIGATION,

WHERE THE FIRST PART

ADNIGATES THE FIRST

PART -- HOW DOES THAT

WORK?

IN THE QURAN, IT DIDN'T

ALL COME AS ONCE, LIKE WE

HAVE THE GOSPELS.

MUHAMMAD GAVE PORTIONS AT

A TIME.

AND LATER PORTIONS

CANCELLED OUT EARLIER

PORTIONS.

THAT'S WHY THE FACT THAT

THE LAST MAJOR FACTOR IS

THE MOST VIOLENT HAS BEEN

VERY PROBLEMATIC FOR THE

REST OF THE WORLD IN TERMS

OF THE DOCTRINE OF JIHAD.

Pat: BUT THAT HAS

NEVER BEEN REVOKED,

THOUGH, HAS IT?

CLASSICAL ISLAM HAS

UNDERSTOOD THIS, AND THAT

IS WHY FOR CENTURIES

MUSLIMS HAD NO PROBLEM

FIGHTING AND CONQUERING

PORTIONS OF THE WORLD.

IT WASN'T UNTIL THE 20th

CENTURY THAT WE FIRST SEE

THE PHRASE USED "IS LAM IS

A RELIGION OF PEACE."

Pat: WHAT ABOUT THE

TERM "JIHAD," DID YOU USE

THAT AT HOME?

NO.

MY FATHER WAS IN THE U.S.

NAVY FOR 24 YEARS.

HE IS A RETIRED ARMY

MAJOR.

AND TAUGHT US TO LOVE OUR

NEIGHBORS.

AND JIHAD WAS NOT ON THE

RADAR UNTIL 9/11, AND

THAT'S ONLY BECAUSE I HAD

TO INVESTIGATE WHAT PEOPLE

WERE DOING IN THE NAME OF

MY RELIGION.

Pat: I REMEMBER THE

HEAD OF THE P.L.O.

SHOUTING JIHAD, JIHAD,

JIHAD.

IT WASN'T SOMETHING ABOUT

CONTROLLING YOUR INNER

PASSIONS.

THE MUSLIM PEOPLE ARE

VERY PASSIONATE,

ESPECIALLY IN THE MIDDLE

EAST.

SO, YEAH, THEY WILL SAY

WHAT THEY MEAN.

Pat: BUT JIHAD MEANS

CONQUERING SOMEBODY ELSE?

THE WORD ITSELF MEANS

"STRUGGLE," BUT AS WE SEE

IT UNFOLD DURING

MUHAMMAD'S LIFE AND THEN

IN THE HADITH, IT TAKES ON

A TRIBAL MEANING,

BASICALLY FIGHTING FOR THE

SAKE OF ALLAH.

Pat: HOW ARE WE EVER

GOING TO CONTROL THIS?

IF WE REFUSE TO

ACKNOWLEDGE AT THE HIGHEST

LEVELS, THAT JIHAD, THE

MUSLIM FAITH, ISLAM, IS A

WARRIOR RELIGION AND IT IS

INTENT ON CONTROLLING THE

WHOLE WORLD?

HOW ARE WE IN THE WEST

GOING TO FIGHT IT IF WE

RAEREFUSE TO ACKNOWLEDGE IT?

I THINK WE HAVE TO

RECOGNITION THERE ARE

MULTIPLE TYPES OF MUSLIMS.

SOME TAKE THEMSELVES AWAY

FROM THE QURAN.

IF YOU HAVE MUSLIMS WHO

ARE NOT GOING BY THE

TEACHINGS OF QURAN, THEY

HAVE THE ABILITY TO REFORM

IT FROM THE INSIDE -- I

DON'T KNOW THAT, BUT I

THINK THAT COULD HAPPEN.

AND CHRIST TELLS US TO

LOVE OUR ENEMIES.

I THINK THROUGH LOVE,

THROUGH THE GOSPEL, WE CAN

TRANSFORM THE MUSLIM

WORLD.

Pat: BUT YOU DON'T

THINK MILITARY ACTION IS

THE WAY TO GO?

IF I STRICTLY FOLLOW

THE WORDS OF JESUS, I HAVE

A HARD TIME FINDING WHERE

HE WOULD TELL ME TO FIGHT

MY MUSLIM NEIGHBORS.

Pat: SO YOU DON'T

BELIEVE THAT WOULD BE THE

WAY TO GO, THEN?

THAT'S MY POSITION.

BUT I WILL LET CHRISTIANS

WHO ARE POLICY-MAKERS

PRAYERFULLY FOLLOW THE

HOLY SPIRIT.

Pat: NABEEL, THANK

YOU FOR BEING WITH US.

THE BOOK IS CALLED

"ANSWERING JIHAD," AND WE

APPRECIATE YOU BEING HERE,

AND GOD BLESS YOU.

THANK YOU SO MUCH.

Pat: IT'S A PLEASURE.

TERRY?

Terry: STILL AHEAD, A

"700 CLUB" EASTER CLASSIC.

SCULPTURE GILL AMELLIO

RECREATES THE FINAL HOURS

OF JESUS CHRIST.

THAT'S COMING UP LATER.

Terry: HERE IN

AMERICA, WE CAN GET A

GLASS OF FRESH WATER JUST

BY TURNING ON THE TAP.

IN GUATEMALA, ONE THING

GEL MOMSINGLEMOM ONLY GETS WATER AFTER

WAITING FOR HOURS OR FROM

BEGGING HER NEIGHBORS.

Reporter: SHE WAITS

FOR HOURS TO WAIT FOR

WATER TO COME THROUGH THE

OLD PIPES IN HER VILLAGE.

TO FEED HER THREE

CHILDREN, SHE WORKS

PICKING BERRIES WHERE THEY

ARE IN SEASON.

SHE IS THE SOUL PROVIDER

SINCE HER HUSBAND LEFT.

HE WAS CHEATING ON ME

WITH ANOTHER WOMAN.

OUR CHILDREN HAVE NO SHOES

AND I COULD BARELY FEED

THEM.

WHAT CAN I DO?

I GATHER MY CHILDREN AND I

SAY, LET'S PRAY BECAUSE

YOU HAVE ANOTHER FATHER IN

HEAVEN.

Reporter: WHEN THE

WATER DOESN'T COME THROUGH

THE PIPES, SHE WALKS 20

MINUTES TO HER CLOSEST

NEIGHBOR TO BEG FOR WATER.

THIS DIRTY POND IS THE

ONLY PLACE HER CHILDREN

HAVE TO BATHE.

THE WATER IS REALLY

YUCKY.

THERE ARE FISH AND BUGS IN

IT.

Reporter: I FOUND OUT

THAT HER DAUGHTER, IRMA,

WAS SUFFERING FROM A BAD

SKIN INFECTION FROM THE

DIRTY WATER.

I COULDN'T STAND THE

ITCHING ON MY SKIN.

I SCRATCHED AND SCRATCHED,

BUT IT DIDN'T STOP.

Reporter: SO WE

BOUGHT SOME MEDICINE FOR

IRMA.

WHEN THEY GAVE US THE

MEDICATION, I THANKED GOD

FOR WHAT WAS HAPPENING

BECAUSE I DIDN'T EXPECT

HELP THAT DAY.

Reporter: AND TO HELP

ROSALINDA AND HER WHOLE

COMMUNITY WITH THEIR WATER

PROBLEM, CBN INSTALLED

PIPES TO PROVIDE EVERYONE

FOR WATER, DRINKING,

BAKING, AND COOKING.

I WAS THRILLED TO BE THERE

FOR THE DEDICATION.

THE NEW PIPES BRING THAT

FRESH, CLEAN WATER TO

EVERY HOME.

AND FINALLY, TO HELP HER

PROVIDE FOR HER CHILDREN,

WE BUILT AND STOCKED A

SMALL STORE FOR HER.

GRACIAS.

Through Translator:

THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR THE

STORE AND FOR THE MEDICINE

FOR MY DAUGHTER.

I CANNOT REPAY YOU, BUT I

KNOW GOD WILL REWARD YOU

IN GREAT WAYS.

I WANT TO THANK YOU FOR

HELPING MY MOM.

Terry: ROSALINDA AND

IRMA AND THE REST OF HER

CHILDREN REPRESENT A LARGE

FACTION OF THE WORLD.

YOU KNOW, A LARGE FACTION

OF THE WORLD IS BATHING

AND DRINKING THE KIND OF

WATER YOU SAW IN THAT

TERRIBLE POOL.

YOU KNOW, WE HAVE SUCH

OPTIONS MERE.

HERE.

WE TAKE SHOWERS WHEN WE

WANT TO, BATHE IN ENTIRE

TUBS FULL OF WATER.

WE COOK WITH CLEAN WATER.

YOU CAN GO TO YOUR FAUS FAUCET

AND TURN IT ON ANY TIME

YOU WANT TO.

IN THE REST OF THE WORLD,

SOMETIMES PEOPLE SPEND

THEIR ENTIRE DAY GETTING

ONE BUCKET OF VERY DIRTY

WATER.

LISTEN, "700 CLUB"

CRUCIFIXION FROM AN

ARTIST'S PERSPECTIVE.

STAY TUNED FOR GIL

AMELIO'S "THE FACE OF

CHRIST."

THAT'S LATER ON TODAY'S

SHOW.

Wendy: AND WELCOME

BACK TO "THE 700 CLUB."

NORTH CAROLINA'S GOVERNOR

HAS SIGNED A BILL THAT

AFFECTIVELY REPEALS THE

BATHROOM ORDINANCE IN

CHARLOTTE.

THAT BILL PREVENTS CITIES

AND COUNTIES FROM PASSING

THEIR OWN RULES ON

TRANSGENDERS' BATHROOMS.

THAT CAME AFTER CITY

LEADERS APPROVED A BROAD

ANTI-DISCRIMINATION

MEASURE LAST MONTH.

IT ALLOWED TRANSGENDER

PEOPLE TO USE EITHER MALE

OR FEMALE BATHROOMS,

DEPENDING WHAT THEY

BELIEVE THEIR GENDER

IDENTITY IS.

CRITICS SAY THE GENDER

WOULD LET BIOLOGICAL MEN

USE WOMEN'S RESTROOMS, AND

ANY MAN COULD GO INTO A

WOMAN'S LOCKER ROOM OR

RESTROOM JUST BY CALLING

HIMSELF A TRANSGENDER.

> A POWERFUL SPRING

SNOWSTORM SHUT DOWN

DENVER'S AIRPORT ON

WEDNESDAY.

THE HEAVY SNOW AND WINDS

MADE IT UNSAFE FOR PLANES

TO LAND OR TAKE OFF.

THE AIRPORT REOPENED AFTER

ABOUT SEVEN HOURS, BUT

MORE THAN 1300 OF THE 1500

SCHEDULED FLIGHTS WHERE

CANCELLED.

HUNDREDS OF PEOPLE WITH

SUITCASES AND DUFFEL BAGS

STOOD OR LAID AROUND THE

TERMINALS.

NOW THE STORM IS MOVING

INTO THE MIDWEST, BRINGING

SNOW INTO MINNESOTA,

WISCONSIN, AND MICHIGAN.

PAT AND SERRUYA WILL BE

BACK WITH MORE OF "THE 700

CLUB" RIGHT AFTER THIS.

Pat: SUNDAY, THE DAY

OF THE RESURRECTION OF

JESUS CHRIST.

WAS READING TODAY IN

JOHN'S GOP GOSPEL ABOUT WHAT

JESUS SAID BEFORE PONTIUS

PILOT.

AND HE SAID, "MY KINGDOM

IS NOT OF THIS WORLD."

IF IT WAS OF THIS WORLD,

MY DISCIPLES WOULD FIGHT

TO KEEP ME FROM BEING

TAKEN.

BUT MY KINGDOM IS NOT OF

THIS WORLD.

BUT HE SAYS, "FOR THIS

CAUSE I WAS BORN, AND FOR

THIS CAUSE I CAME INTO

THIS WORLD, TO BEAR

WITNESS OF THE TRUTH."

AND PONTIUS PILOT SAID,,

"WHAT IS TRUTH?"

I BELIEVE SHAKESPEARE HAD

IT, PILOT WOULD NOT STAY

FOR AN ANSWER.

WELL, THAT WAS A LONG TIME

AGO, BUT WE STILL LIVE

WITH THE CONSCIOUSNESS

THAT OUR LORD SUFFERED IN

DIED.

AND SO WE WANT TO BRING

YOU, RIGHT NOW ON THIS

PROGRAM, ONE OF THE MOST

MOVING DEPICTIONS OF THE

SUFFERING, THE PASSION OF

JESUS CHRIST.

THIS IS BY GIL AMELIO, AND

IT IS CALLED "THE HEAD OF

CHRIST."

IN THE BEGINNING WAS

THE WORD.

AND THE WORD WAS WITH GOD.

AND THE WORD WAS GOD.

AND WORD BECAME FLESH AND

DWELLED AMONG US.

AND WE BEHELD HIS GLORY,

AS OF THE ONLY BEGOTTEN OF

THE FATHER, FULL OF GRACE

AND TRUTH.

WORDS LIKE THESE ARE WORDS

THAT HAVE INSPIRED THE

ARTISTS, UP THROUGH THE

CENTURIES, TO PORTRAY THE

FAITH OF CHRIST.

LET'S GO BACK INTO SOME OF

THAT HISTORY AND SCRIPTURE

AS THE ARTIST SPEAKS ABOUT

OUR LORD AND SAVIOR JESUS

CHRIST.

THE EARLY ARTIST WAS

INSPIRED BY THE WORDS OF

ISAIAH, WHERE ISAIAH SPOKE

ABOUT THE SUFFERING

SERVANT TO COME.

IN HIS 52nd CHAPTER,

ISAIAH SAID THAT THIS

SUFFERING SERVANT, THIS

MESSIAH, WOULD SUFFER A

BEATING SO THAT HIS FORM

WOULD BE MARRED MORE THAN

ALL OF THE SONS OF MEN.

AND THEN IN THE 53rd

CHAPTER, AND EVEN NOW, IN

THE FIRST AND EARLY

CENTURIES, WE SEE THE

SPLIT IN THE NAZARENE

BEARD.

THE 53rd CHAPTER TALKED

ABOUT THE DESPISED MAN, A

MAN OF SORROWS HE WOULD

BE, AS IF IT WERE A ROOT

THAT WOULD NOT BEAR FRUIT

THROUGH THE SEED THAT WAS

PLANTED UPON IT OR DROPPED

UPON A DRY GROUND.

THERE WOULD BE NOTHING

ABOUT HIS APPEARANCE THAT

WOULD MAKE US DESIROUS OF

HIM.

IF YOU CAN IMAGINE THE

WORDS PROPHESIED BY

ISAIAH, THIS JESUS WOULD

EVENTUALLY BE BEATEN AND

BATTERED SO WE COULDN'T

RECOGNIZE HIM ANY LONGER.

THESE ARE THE BASIC

SCRIPTURAL PIECES THAT

INSPIRED THE EARLY

BIZANTINE ARTISTS.

LET'S GO FURTHER TO

CAPTURE THE EASTERN

ARTISTS, WHERE IT REALLY

BEGAN.

HOLDING IT THERE FOR A

MINUTE, LET'S MOVE FROM

THE FIRST TO THE 11

CENTURY, TO THE

RENAISSANCE, SEEING THE

APPEARANCE THAT WE

GENERALLY ACCEPT AS THE

FACE OF CHRIST.

WE SEE THE WARMER

APPEARANCE OF THE FACE OF

CHRIST.

THE BEARD REMAINING THE

SAME FROM THE VERY FIRST

CENTURY.

WHAT WERE THE WORDS THAT

NOW MOVED THIS ARTIST?

WE CAN EXPLAIN THAT

THROUGH THREE PAINTINGS:

THE AGONY OF THE GARDEN,

THE TRIUMPHANT ENTRY INTO

JERUSALEM, AND THE

CONFRONTATION BEFORE THE

ROMAN SOLDIERS.

REMEMBER THE SOLDIERS TOOK

HIS CLOTHING OFF AND

PLACED UPON HIM THE

GORGEOUS ROBES OF A KING.

THEY WOULD MAKE SPORT OF

HIM.

AND THEY WOULD PLACE THIS

PURPLE ROBE ABOUT JESUS,

WHO CLAIMED TO BE THE KING

OF THE JEWS, AND THEY

WOULD MAKE FUN OF HIM.

AND THEY GAVE HIM A

SEPTOR.

BUT BEFORE GOING INTO THAT

PAINTING, LET'S LOOK AT

THE OTHER TWO.

RECENTLY MOST OF THE

CHRISTIAN WORLD CELEBRATED

PALM SUNDAY.

WHERE JESUS RODE INTO TOWN

ON A DONKEY THAT HADN'T

BEEN RIDDEN BEFORE,

ACCORDING TO PROPHECY.

HE WOULD RIDE INTO THE

NARROW STREETS OF

JERUSALEM, A PLACE THEY

WOULD ADVICE HE SHOULDN'T

HAVE BEEN AT THAT TIME,

AND PEOPLE WOULD THROW

PALM LEAVES AT HIS FEET.

AND HE WOULD NOT ONLY HERE

HOSANNAS, BLESSED IT HE

WHO COMES IN THE NAME OF

THE LORD, AND THE HIGHER

ACCLIMATION, HOSANNA IN

THE HIGHEST, BLESSED IS HE

WHO COMES IN THE NAME OF

THE LORD, BUT THOSE OTHERS

WHO DID NOT BELIEVE IN

THIS JESUS -- HE WOULD SEE

THE ROMAN SOLDIERS WHO

WOULD GIVE HIM MOCK

SALUTES, AND JESUS WOULD

ANSWER THAT FROM THE TREE.

AS HE MADE HIS WAY

THROUGH, HE WOULD HEAR

THAT BEAUTIFUL PRAYER.

AND THE PEOPLE WOULD SHOUT

TO HIM...

[SPEAKING A FOREIGN

LANGUAGE]

HERE O ISRAEL, THE LORD

OUR GOD, THE LORD IS ONE.

JESUS WOULD RIDE INTO AND

THROUGH THAT CROWD AND

CLAIM THE TEMPLE.

IN THE OTHER PAINTING,

JESUS IN THE AGONY IN THE

GARDEN, WE READ ABOUT IT

IN LUKE 22: 44.

AS JESUS WAS IN THAT

GARDEN, HE KNEW WHAT WAS

ABOUT TO HAPPEN WITHIN A

MATTER OF HOURS.

THIS JESUS, BORN OF A

WOMAN, AS ANY MAN OR WOMAN

IS.

EIGHT DAYS AFTER HIS

BIRTH, HE WOULD SHED BLOOD

ACCORDING TO THE CUSTOM OF

HIS PARENTS, AND JESUS WAS

BORN TO DIE.

IN THAT SCENE, WE SEE

JESUS LYING THERE, AND

THEN PRAYING ON A ROCK.

SOME OF THE APOSTLES WERE

NOT AWAKE AT THAT TIME.

AND AS HE SWEPT, LUKE SLEPT, LUKE THE

PHYSICIAN TOLD US, AFTER

HE GATHERED THE EVIDENCE,

THAT HIS SWEAT TURNED INTO

GIANT DROPLETS OF BLOOD.

THAT'S WHEN HE BEGAN TO

DIE, MEDICALLY.

JESUS WOULD THEN LOOK UP

INTO A BEAM OF LIFE, AND

THE ARTIST HOFFMAN

PORTRAYS THIS SCENE.

AND JESUS WOULD SAY TO THE

FATHER, LET THIS PASS.

LET ME OUT OF THIS MOMENT.

LET NOT MY WILL BE DONE

BUT THINE.

THE ARTIST CAN RELATE TO

HIM BECAUSE JESUS PRAYED

THAT PRAYER.

AND EVEN AFTER THE PRAYER,

HE COULD HEAR THE TINKER

OF ARMY AS THEY WOULD

ARREST HIM AND GIVE HIM

THE KISS OF DEATH.

AND THEN IN THAT GIANT

PAINTING, THE CONT

CONFRONTATION SEEN BEFORE

THE ROMAN SOLDIERS, WE CAN

SEE THE COMMANDER OF THE

GUARD, AND WE ARE TOLD IN

SCRIPTURE IT IS KNOWN AS A

COHORT.

JESUS AT THE COHORT, A

BATTALION OF MEN, 12,000

MEN, AND COMING OFF HIS

HORSE, THE COMMANDER WOULD

MAKE SPORT OF HIM.

THEY WOULD PLACE A

BLINDFOLD AROUND THE EYES

OF JESUS, BECAUSE THEY

HEARD ABOUT THESE GREAT

MIRACLES HE HAD PERFORMED,

AND ALL HE HAD TO DO IS

CONVINCE THE COHORT, HIS

OWN MEN, SO HE WOULD ASK

JESUS TO PLAY A TRICK.

YOU'VE BEEN AROUND JUDEA,

YOU HEARD ABOUT ALL THESE

PROPHETS WHO HEALED

PEOPLE.

AND THEN A MONTH LATER THE

LEPROSY WHAT COME BACK.

TELL MY MEN.

BECAUSE WE HAVE NOT SEEN

THESE TRICKS.

COME ON, CHRIST, HOW WAS

IT?

YOU'RE A YOUNG MAN.

YOU DON'T HAVE TO GO TO

HARROD AND BE A

POLITICIAN.

TELL US ABOUT THAT BLIND

MAN ALONG THE ROAD.

HE WAS THERE.

YOU ACTUALLY HEALED HIM.

HOW DID THAT GO, CHRIST?

CAN YOU SEE THROUGH THAT

BLINDFOLD?

COME ON, CHRIST, IF YOU'RE

A KING, YOU CAN SEE

THROUGH A MERE BLINDFOLD.

WAS IT ME?

ONE OF MY MEN?

SIX OF THEM?

HOW MANY ARE HERE, KING?

CAN YOU SEE THY REED?

WHICH WAY DO I HOLD IT?

PLAY SOME KIND OF A TRICK.

LOOK THROUGH THE

BLINDFOLD.

CAN'T YOU SEE THROUGH A

MERE PIECE OF CLOTH?

AND THIS FOOLISHNESS WOULD

GO ON.

BUT JESUS DIDN'T SAY ONE

WORD.

AND THEY WOULD REMOVE THE

BLINDFOLD AND LET HIM GO.

WE'LL SEE WHAT ROME WILL

DO, AND THEY RELEASED HIM

TO THE MOB.

AT THAT TIME THEY WOULD

FASHION A CROWN OF THORNS.

AND THEN, ACCORDING TO LAW

AND CUSTOM, JESUS WOULD BE

SCURGED.

PAUL SPOKE ABOUT THE

STRIPES, 40 STRIKES MINUS

ONE, ACCORDING TO THE LAW.

IN THIS SETTING, WOULD THE

SOLDIERS COUNT THE 39.

JESUS THEN WOULD BE

DELIVERED UP.

HE WOULD CARRY THAT CROSS

TO GALGATHA.

AND WHEN THEY GOT HIM

THERE, THEY WOULD CROWN

HIM WITH A CROWN OF

THORNS, AND THEY WOULD

CRUCIFY IT.

THE ROMAN SOLDIERS WERE

QUITE EXPERT AT THIS.

WE SEE THIS IN PAINTINGS,

AND WE'RE REFERRED BACK TO

IT IN SCRIPTURE, JESUS

FULFILLING EVERY IOTA OF

PROPHECY.

******

THEY WOULD THEN TAKE

HIM, IN THIS CONDITION,

AND THEY WOULD PLACE HIM

ON A CROSS.

THEY WOULD FIX HIM WITH

NAILS IN A SPECIAL AREA IN

THE WRIST.

THEY WOULD DRIVE THESE

NAILS IN HIS WRISTS.

ONE DOWN BELOW, ON A FOOT

OVERLAPPING THE OTHER.

AND JESUS DIDN'T STAND ON

THE CROSS LIKE SOME KIND

OF A KING.

JESUS, THE MAN, TOTAL MAN,

MINUS ONE THING WE ARE ALL

HEIR TO, AND ON THAT

CROSS, THEY WONDERED, AND

HE COULDN'T EXHALE HIS

AIR.

AT THAT PARTICULAR MOMENT,

JESUS WOULD LOOK UP INTO

THE HEAVENS AND THEY

BECAME DARK.

HE COULDN'T SEE HIS FATHER

ANYMORE.

HE WOULD TRY TO EXHALE IN

HIS CONDITION.

AND THEY WOULD HEAR HIM.

[SOUND OF BREATHING]

AND JESUS WOULD RISE

OUT OF THAT FULCRUM FROM

DOWN BELOW.

"FATHER, FORGIVE THEM FOR

THEY KNOW NOT WHAT THEY

DO."

AND IN THE NINTH HOUR,

EVEN THEN HE COULD HAVE

CONTEMPTED, COME DOWN,

CHRIST.

HE WOULD HEAR THE

ADVERSARY, SUCCUMB.

JESUS WOULD RISE AGAIN AND

THEN HE KNEW THE FATHER

WASN'T THERE.

IN HIS HUMANITY, HE DIDN'T

TURN DIVINITY ON AND OFF.

HE WOULD LOOK UP AND SHOUT

SOMETHING THEY DIDN'T

QUITE UNDERSTAND.

[SPEAKING A FOREIGN

LANGUAGE]

MY GOD, MY GOD.

WHY HAS THOU FORSAKEN ME?

AT THE VERY END, JESUS

WOULD SAY "BUT INTO THY

HANDS I COMMEND MY

SPIRIT," AND HE WOULD DIE.

BUT JESUS, AS HE PROMISED,

CAME BACK ON THE THIRD

DAY.

NOT TO BE JESUS THE

CRUCIFIED, BUT JESUS

CHRIST THE KING, AS HE

SAID HE WOULD, RAISING

LAZARUS FROM THE DEAD,

HEALING A WOMAN, HEALING A

BLIND MAN.

JESUS CAME BACK.

AND HE SAID HE WOULD COME

BACK AGAIN A SECOND TIME.

ARE WE LIVING AS IF -- WE

WHO CALL OURSELVES

CHRISTIANS -- AS IF WE

BELIEVE THIS?

THAT JESUS WOULD HAVE TO

DIE THIS DEATH AND THE

FATHER WOULD LET HIM GO,

AS HE DID EPHRAIM.

YOU'RE SO BENT ON LEAVING,

HE SAID IN HOSANNA 10, I

MUST LET YOU GO.

AND JESUS, THE LAMB, TOOK

UPON HIMSELF ALL OF THE

SINS OF MEN SO THAT WE

WOULD BE FREE UNDER GRACE.

IF THE WORLD OF ART GIVES

US NOTHING MORE THAN THAN

TO THINK ABOUT THESE

MATTERS, IT WILL HAVE

ACHIEVED ITS GRANDEST

GLORY.

Pat: HE CAME AND HE

SUFFERED FOR YOU AND FOR

ME.

HE WAS LORD OF GLORY.

HE CAME FROM HEAVEN.

HE CAME FROM THE FATHER.

HE CAME OUTSIDE OF ALL

HUMANITY.

AND HE ENTERED HUMANITY

AND BECAME A MAN AND TOOK

ON THE FORM OF A SERVANT.

SO THAT YOU AND I COULD

LIVE.

BECAUSE THE BIBLE SAYS

"GOD SO LOVED THE WORLD

THAT HE GAVE HIS ONLY

BEGOTTEN SON, THAT WHOEVER

BELIEVES IN HIM SHALL NOT

PERISH BUT HAVE

EVERLASTING LIFE."

AND I'M GLAD TO STAND

BEFORE YOU TODAY AND SAY,

YES, I GAVE MY HEART TO

JESUS, AND HE HAS GIVEN ME

ETERNAL LIFE.

AND RIGHT NOW, AS WE

CELEBRATE AND GIVE HONOR

TO HIS CRUCIFIXION AND

RESURRECTION, WE GIVE YOU

THE CHANCE TO SAY, YES, I

RECEIVE HIM.

HIS HAND IS KNOCKING AT

THE DOOR OF YOUR HEART.

HIS HAND IS WOUNDED.

HE WAS PIERCED FOR YOUR

SALVATION.

AND WHAT HE SAYS TO YOU

TODAY IS, WOULD YOU LET ME

COME IN?

BEHOLD, I STAND AT THE

DOOR AND KNOCK.

IF ANYBODY WILL HEAR MY

VOICE AND OPEN THE DOOR,

I'LL COME IN.

RIGHT NOW, I'M GOING TO

ASK YOU TO HELP YOUR HEART

TO HIM.

I'M GOING TO LEAD YOU IN A

VERY SIMPLE PRAYER.

SO BOW YOUR HEAD WHEREVER

YOU ARE AND PRAY WITH ME

THESE WORDS: LORD JESUS

CHRIST, I THANK YOU THAT

YOU CAME TO EARTH.

I THANK YOU THAT YOU

SUFFERED HUMILIATION, THAT

YOU SUFFERED CURSING, AND

YOU SUFFERED CRUCIFIXION,

AND YOU DID IT FOR ME.

AND, LORD, I'M NOT GOING

TO KEEP YOU OUTSIDE OF MY

HEART.

BUT I'M GOING TO OPEN THE

DOOR AND ASK YOU TO COME

IN.

AND ON THIS SPECIAL DAY,

PLEASE, LORD, COME INTO MY

HEART.

LIVE YOUR LIFE IN ME, AND

I WILL LIVE FOR YOU.

AND I WILL SERVE YOU ALL

THE DAYS OF MY LIFE.

THANK YOU, LORD, THAT

YOU'VE HEARD MY PRAYER.

AND THANK YOU, LORD, THAT

YOU'VE COME INTO MY HEART.

NOW, IF YOU PRAYED WITH ME

JUST THEN, I'M GOING TO

ASK YOU TO DO SOMETHING.

I WANT YOU TO GO TO YOUR

TELEPHONE.

CALL IN AND SAY, LOOK, I

JUST PRAYED WITH THAT GUY

ON TV.

I JUST PRAYED WITH PAT.

I GAVE MY HEART TO THE

LORD JESUS CHRIST.

AND I WANT TO GIVE YOU

SOMETHING TO TELL YOU WHAT

TO DO NEXT.

IT IS CALLED "A NEW DAY."

THERE IS A C.D. IN HERE, A

COMPACT DISC.

IT IS 73 MINUTES, A VERY

CONCENTRATED TEACHING

ABOUT WHAT YOU DID, ABOUT

WHAT IT MEANS TO BE A NEW

CREATURE IN CHRIST.

I'LL GIVE THIS TO YOU IF

YOU JUST CALL AND SAY, I

JUST PRAYED WITH YOU.

IT IS A TOLL-FREE NUMBER.

1-800-759-0700.

YOU CAN SEE IT THERE ON

YOUR SCREEN.

NO COST AT ALL.

IT'S FOR FREE.

WELL, AT THIS TIME, I WANT

TO DO SOMETHING ELSE.

I WANT TO LET YOU SHARE

WITH US IN THE DEATH AND

RESURRECTION OF THE LORD.

AND I SAID AT THE

BEGINNING OF THIS PROGRAM,

THAT I WANTED YOU TO GET

SOME WINE OR GRAPE JUICE

AND SOME BREAD, AND WE

WANT TO SHARE TOGETHER.

AND TERRY IS HERE.

AND WE'RE GOING TO

REMEMBER BEFORE HIS

CRUCIFIXION, AFTER HE HAD

SUPPED, HE TOOK BREAD AND

HE SAID, "THIS BREAD IS MY

BODY, WHICH IS BROKEN FOR

YOU, THIS DO AS OFTEN AS

YOU EAT IT IN REMEMBRANCE

OF ME."

AND HE ALSO TOOK THE CUP,

AND HE SAID, "THIS CUP IS

THE NEW COVENANT IN MY

BLOOD.

DRINK YEE ALL OF IT."

SO, TERRY, WOULD YOU SHARE

THIS.

Terry: THANK YOU.

Pat: THEY'RE DOING IT

RIGHT NOW.

OKAY.

Pat: "THIS IS MY

BODY, WHICH IS BROKEN FOR

YOU.

THIS DO IN REMEMBRANCE OF

ME."

Pat: THIS CUP IS THE

NEW TESTAMENT, THE NEW

COVENANT IN HIS BLOOD.

AND HE SAID, "DRINK YEE

ALL OF IT" IT."

THE NEW TESTAMENT IN THE

BLOOD OF THE LORD JESUS

CHRIST.

Pat: WE THANK YOU FOR

BEING WITH US ON THIS

SPECIAL EASTER

CELEBRATION.

WE CALL IT MAUNDY

THURSDAY.

AND WE LEAVE YOU WITH A

SONG CELEBRATING OUR

FREEDOM THROUGH THE BLOOD

OF CHRIST.
