DON – FORMER VIETNAM VET – Part Five - April 16, 2011

E-mail Print PDF
Continuing a 7-part special by Richard F. Kontz on a Vietnam Vet he met while running the Bread of Life Christian Bookstore in 2015 through mid-2011.

Previously, I had found out how Don became an alcoholic in Vietnam, how he become a very angry and at times a very violent man, who lost his wife and family because of these problems, and how eventually he was accused and convicted of murder and served 11 years in prison.

In the book of John, Jesus makes a series of “I AM” statements, implying that He is the Great I AM who spoke to Moses at the burning bush. In the Old Testament, YHWH (or Yahweh) is often used with another descriptive word to provide us with greater understanding of the nature of God. Here, Jesus is using an agricultural illustration to point out that he is the TRUE source of Life, particularly eternal life. Every Israelite would have been familiar with vineyards and the awareness that grape vines required the attention of pruning.

Throughout John 15:1-11, Jesus...

ALBUQUERQUE—President Russell Begaye and Vice President Jonathan Nez opened the annual Navajo Nation Division of Social Services conference July 10, with back-to-back keynote speeches that highlighted recent successes and encouraged division employees to magnify Diné cultural teachings.
