From our Israel Desk – August 2022


Israel’s success against Islamic Jihad Israel’s 66-hour campaign targeting the military leadership of Palestinian Islamic Jihad (PIJ) was a major success on multiple levels.

Should Jesus be shared with Jewish people?


Christianity may have been intended to be good news but has been bad news to Jewish people and, sadly, one must look at the history of official Christianity, Roman Catholicism, Russian Orthodox Christians, and all denominations of the church which have consistently pressed and persecuted the Jewish people in the name of Jesus.By about the time you get to the 4th century, the general idea was that...

What happens after death?


This morning I was speaking about the Gospel from the resurrection from John’s point of view and one of the things we saw is that Jesus rose from the dead and that He was seen first of all by the women who were much more faithful and zealous to seek the Lord at this time in the morning. And I suggested that the men, the disciples, had actually fled, most likely to Bethany, when Jesus was...

Palm Sunday – Part 2


So, God promises that the Jewish people will be scattered to the nations and that, at the end of days, they’re going to be brought back to their own land. It’s interesting that the word for ‘gather’ is the Hebrew word kabetz which is the root of today’s Hebrew noun ‘kibbutz’.
