The Bible Verse That Pastor Saaed Leaned On While Captive In Iran

Pastor Saaed Abedini was held captive in Iran for three years for being a Christian.  He was arrested for helping Christian start churches.  While in captivity, Abedini was exposed to torture at the hands of his captors.

On Monday, Abedini shared the verse that kept him strong throughout his harrowing ordeal.  On his facebook page, Abedini shared Isaiah 53:7 which says “He was oppressed, and he was afflicted, yet he opened not his mouth. He is brought as a lamb to the slaughter, and as a sheep before her shearers is dumb, so he openeth not his mouth.”

According to the Christian Post, this verse weighed heavy on Abedini’s heart.  “To know what our Savior on the cross went through for our salvation touches my heart deeply,” Abedini said. “Although I experienced some torture in prison, the thing I remember is that I could not speak for myself. He taught me to turn to him instead of man.”

Abedini is now back at home in Boise, Idaho rekindling his relationship with his kids.
