Summary

Sadhu Chellappa was a Brahmin Hindu priest searching for the God referred to in ancient Indian scriptures as the one who would come and die for the sins of people. His testimony of how he came to know the Lord Jesus Christ in India reveals the truth of the angel’s message to the shepherds, that this good news of great joy was for all people. His preaching on the life of Cornelius from Acts 10 also shows us that a person can be devout, prayerful and compassionate, yet still needing salvation by believing in the Lord Jesus Christ so that he can be born again through the gift of the Holy Spirit.
