Jack Blanco. Jack is a well-known educator, theologian and author. In this conversation Jack shares how, during his teen-age years, while visiting relatives in Germany, he was tricked into believing he was being given a scholarship to study engineering. Jack soon found himself, as a scrawny boy from the USA, imprisoned in a labor camp where enemies of the Hitler movement were housed. The privations there and in concentration camps later would have cost him his life, but God’s hand was upon him! Alone one day, Jack pondered upon whom he should pattern his life–should he even survive. He really had had no male role model up to that time, and he sensed no clear direction for whatever life was to be ahead of him. Christ, in mercy, spoke to Jack at that time–with the thought that he could seek the life of Jesus Christ as his pattern. All Jack knew then about
Jesus was the manger story and the story of the cross…but he decided–alone and with little hope, and having never read the Bible–that he would do just that: he would let the life of Christ guide him. The rest is a history of his life centered on God and His word: His Son Jesus Christ. You’ll be richly blessed to hear the details of his daily, continual surrender that led him to come to know God and His Clear Word. (Listen to Part 2 later.) All praise goes to God!
