Christ the Eternal Kalimat

Christ the Eternal Kalimat Archived podcasts are no longer updated. An Indonesian Perspective on the Person and Identity of Jesus Christ

Start date: August 2008 18 episodes

In this podcast, Fr. Daniel will concentrate on the identity of the 2nd person of the Trinity - Jesus the Christ. Is He who He claims to be - Very God of Very God? Jesus is the Eternal Kalimat - Arabic for Word or Logos in Greek.

Fr. Daniel was born in a Muslim home living with his grandfather and began attending the Mosque at 5 years of age. As a young man, he invited Christ into his heart and was baptized into Dutch Reformed Protestant Christianity – the only Church he knew at this time taking the baptismal name of Daniel. He then became very active in witnessing for Christ and he wanted to be an evangelist or missionary. The young Daniel was bewildered by the plethora of groups and denominations with differing and opposing theological thoughts, traditions and practices. He also began to miss liturgical rhythm of life which he was used to in Islam and set his heart searching towards the ancient Christianity of the East. He knew nothing of Eastern Orthodox Christianity, rather his intuition told him that Christianity was born in the same Middle Eastern milieu as Islam and soon he embraced and was chrismated into the Orthodox Christian Church.
