Today my guest is Daniel Yahav, a Messianic Jewish pastor living in the north of Israel. He has a deep understanding of the Bible in relation to the times in which we live. With all the conflict that is going on in the nations surrounding Israel coupled with the migration of thousands of refugees to Europe, I asked Daniel whether he believed the world will ever be the same again.
Today my guest is an Arab pastor from in northern Israel. He has been following the plight of the refugees fleeing Syria and believes that Arab Christians have a particular role to play at this time as he now explains.
Today I’m in northern Israel talking to an Arab Christian. He’s the pastor of a large Arab church as well as running a media company that broadcasts to the surrounding Arab nations. When we met, his concern was for the refugees fleeing Syria as he now explains.
This week we hear the story of Karol Joseph. She has been a missionary with Jews for Jesus for many years. In this programme she shares her personal story. So where did it all begin?
Recently in London I met Karol Joseph from New York. She’s been a missionary with Jews for Jesus for many years and has worked in several countries around the world including Israel. She was in London recently to help with a summer evangelistic campaign, and I started by asking her to describe what it means to her, talking to people and sharing her faith on the streets.
Today we return to Nazareth in northern Israel to talk to Yohanna – a Palestinian Christian and the academic dean for both the Nazareth Evangelical College and the Bethlehem Bible College.Yohanna was born and brought up in Israel – he is an Israeli citizen. As a Christian he has had to come to terms with how to respond to living in a land divided by conflict and strong feelings of injustice. So how does he respond?
My guest today is called Rita. A few years ago she would never have dreamt that one day she would be running a shelter in Israel for abused women … but that’s exactly what happened.
The news is frequently dominated by stories of terror and conflict from the region and hopes for peace seem impossible. But what about the believers who live there – is there any coming together of Arab and Jewish believers? Evan Thomas is a Messianic Jewish pastor in Israel. He has always had a desire for strong relationships with Israeli Arab and Palestinian Christians and has gone out of his way to achieve this.
The subject of Israel and the Middle East invokes strong reactions! How important it is therefore to understand, as Christians who believe the Bible, what God is doing there. It can come as a surprise to hear how few believers there are in Israel and the West Bank… their numbers represent a tiny percentage of the population. Yet, in the past 40 years those numbers have grown from a handful to several thousand today – so something is going on!
My guest today is Rod Powell. He and his wife Margi were missionaries in Russia for many years. They left Russia not by choice but because the authorities threw them out of the country as you will hear.
They found themselves in Israel… listen now as Rod shares his story…
