Jesus’ Ministry of Liberation: A Companion after the Year of Mercy
by Fr. Aaron Agorsor
BOOK LAUNCH IS ON APRIL 18TH
This book offers hope both to those in ministry and to those being ministered to. In the image depicting Jesus’ encounter with the Blind Man Bartimaeus, we find a story set within the wider context of Jesus’ final journey from Jericho to Jerusalem where death awaited him.
Perhaps, that was the moment in which he should have been preoccupied with misery and anguish given that his death was imminent. Bartimaeus was too insignificant to be noticed by anyone with such a greater commitment and pre-occupation like Jesus had. It may seem absurd at first to think that Jesus would waste his time on someone like Bartimaeus when death awaited him, but it is in this bizarre situation that Jesus bore authentic witness to mercy.
Jesus’ encounter with the blind man Bartimaeus is exactly God’s vision for humankind, namely, that ministers of God should not forget the vulnerable in the exercise of ministry because it is one of the greatest opportunities of witnessing to God’s love.
