(Worthy News) - A brother's forgiveness to his brother's killer was in the spotlight Wednesday as the pair embraced in front of a Dallas, Texas courtroom.
Brandt Jean, the brother of Botham Jean, asked during his witness impact statement if he could hug former Dallas Police officer Amber Guyger. The judge granted his request and the pair hugged each other in a moment of forgiveness that was seen around the world.
State District Judge Tammy Kemp also gave Guyger a Bible. She read the New Testament's John 3:16 to her:
"For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son that whosoever believes on Him shall not perish, but have everlasting life." [ Source: CBN News (Read More...) ]
