Three Marys attended Yeshua at Calvary, at Golgotha...

And do respect the women of the world;
remember, we all had mothers - Toussaint

First, his mother, Mary, who learned from the Holy Spirit she would give birth to the Son of God; second, her sister, also named Mary; the third woman is known as Mary Magdalene, who was accused of being a prostitute. It was she whom the Rabbi defended against a mob which reviled and cursed her.

So saith the Preacher from The Church Under The Bridge, Jim Moreford, who was on a mission at the Tokio Store Sunday morning.

He was there to baptize, marry, bury, preach and teach, as they say, and while he was at it, he evangelized a crowd of bikers who came to get the Good News.

He taught them that the Hebrew word, Mary, means Holy Princess.

Mr. Moreford taught that Jesus the Messiah was not only foretold by the Prophets in the Old Testament of the Holy Bible, but that he appeared in numerous stories written by the Scribes in its Books of Holy Writ.

In one case, three men visited Abraham at his camp and foretold the destruction of Sodom and Gomorrah, said the Rev.

Two of them were Angels; the third was Jesus the Christ, though he went unnamed in the story. In another episode, while the Children of Israel were living in captivity in Babylon, the King ordered them to bow down to a golden idol, something that would have violated one of the Ten Commandments of Mosaic law.

When the three who refused were cast into the fiery furnace, they not only survived, but they were joined by another individual who remains nameless. It's the faith of Mr. Moreford that it was Jesus who joined them, but did not come out of the furnace when the three were summoned back into the presence of the King. These are only two of the numerous appearances of Jesus Christ that are chronicled in Holy Writ prior to his nativity at Bethlehem.

"I found out you really could read the whole Bible in a year on 10 minutes or so each day," he said. Ten minutes turns into a half hour, sometimes an hour - or more - and one thing leads to another.

Before he knew it, he had covered the old, old story from Genesis to Revelations, and the experience left him wanting more. Hence, he often tours locally with a praise music band, The 10th Leper, so named because of the 10 lepers healed by Jesus, only the 10th came back to see him and thank him for his miraculous cure.

The mission of the Church Under The Bridge, which meets under a freeway viaduct at 5th and I-35 each Sunday, appears at Al's Tokio Store on the first Sunday of every month at 10 a.m.
