Episode 9 - John and the Bandit

Episode 9,   Sep 21, 2023, 04:33 AM

Clemens of Alexandria, born about 150 AD, left an account which was handed down of an event concerning the Apostle John and a murderous bandit who had at one time been counted among the Christians. Looking back over the first few centuries of the Christian age, Eusebius selected this story as one fit for preservation as representing the power of the Gospel in his Ecclesiastical History written in the 300s. While the truth of the event may be questioned, the point it is making is well worth considering.
