Video of Angola Inmate (Seminary Student) James H. Teaching Other Inmates As He “Orally tells the Bible.”

Here is a beautifully told story of how Jesus taught his disciples that He was “the bread of life.”

Told by James H., an inmate who is a friend of The Heart of Texas Foundation, and an Angola Peer Minister.  James is doing life (without parole) at Angola State Penitentiary in Louisiana— and James is a true believer in Jesus Christ.  Listen to the beautiful way the Bible comes alive through “orality.”  This is very likely the way the Bible has been handed down through thousands of generations of peoples and tribes who could not read nor write. We filmed this video live at Angola State Penitentiary in Louisiana, and have used it by permission from James and from the Louisiana State Penitentiary at Angola.

This is an example of what prison Seminary graduates are capable of providing to other inmates within a men’s prison. Ideas like this come out of the transformed and rehabilitated Inmates themselves.
