In this week's sermon on Jesus' Last 100 Days, Jesus will make his most dangerous journey from the Way of Blood to the Way of Suffering that leads to the Cross. However, as he heads towards the Jericho Road, he encounters Bartimaeus, a blind man with great persistence, faith and courage. For all these qualities, Jesus chooses to heal him and Bartimaeus changes the road that he was on.
