The Extraordinary Story · Season 3

Two Surprises on the Jericho Road | S3 E21

Jesus is headed to Jerusalem and nothing is going to stop him- certainly not on the rough and dangerous Jericho Road. A multitude joins Jesus on the path, and as they proceed to Jericho a crazed voice calls out to him: “Son of David, have mercy on me!” In the city, a little man hangs out of a tall tree staring at him. And suddenly, Jesus isn’t so unstoppable after all.

In this episode, Tom Hoopes focuses on the healing of Bartimaeus the blind beggar, and the conversion of Zacchaeus, the prominent tax collector. Through each story, Jesus reveals that his plan to save all humanity includes the healing of each one of us whom he encounters on the road.

The Extraordinary Story is a podcast about the life of Jesus Christ, who entered the maze of our world to give us his Cross as a ladder up and out. The Extraordinary Story is produced by Benedictine College in Atchison, Kansas, and is written and hosted by Tom Hoopes.
