Voice of the Martyrs, 16 May 2019
Pastor Abraham Ben Moses has been released from prison this month after spending two years behind bars for blasphemy in Indonesia.
Pastor Abraham was first arrested in December 2017 after a YouTube video of him surfaced teaching about the differences between the Bible and the Koran. The video was seen as offensive.
As an ex-professor of Islamic studies, Pastor Abraham knows Islam better than most, but he found hope when he converted to Christianity in 2005 after he read the Bible.
Raised a Muslim, he studied religious comparison before teaching Islam at university and raised his family with a devout Muslim faith.
After he received Christ, Pastor Abraham was radically changed and began preaching and evangelising almost immediately.
While in prison, he continued to minister to prisoners, saw around 60 people come to Christ and trained some to be Christian teachers.
