Barabbas

Hello friends,

This easter week, I’ve been thinking a lot about Barabbas,  the guy who was released in exchange for Jesus’ crucifixion.
His name, Bar-abba means son of the father. He was similar to Jesus in that he was a rebel leader… like they accused Jesus. (Mark 15:5-15)
He was physically released from prison but was he released from the grips of hell?
What happened to him after his release? Well… a book idea is coming up in my mind to explore his life… the what ifs of his childhood and youthful life… hope it forms soon enough.

And…
I feel obliged to let you in on why I have been offline for a while…
There was a new twist to the dimension of my life in the past one week so remarkable that I had to hold off all I have been working on the blog for a while. But the “Six weeks” blog series I promised last weekend is still in the works and my experience is getting more exciting… also my “Donut” book publishing is making progress. But I may not have the liberty to share details now.
Hope to be online soon enough.

Thanks. Happy Easter.
