On The Box: Words of Comfort: Ben Hur

On The Box: Words of Comfort: Ben Hur: "I love the scene in the movie “Ben Hur” where a Roman soldier is marching condemned galley-slaves through the desert. They stop in Nazareth for a break, but as the thirsty slaves are being given water, the head honcho says that Judah Ben Hur wasn’t to have a drop. Judah collapses on the ground and gasps “God help me…” Suddenly, a shadow comes over him and a hand gently lifts his weary head from the dirt, and pours water into his parched lips. I have watched that scene numerous times and have never failed to sob like a child, because what I see is so similar to what happened to me in my conversion experience."
