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.

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?
The subject of Israel is guaranteed to cause a stir in Christian circles and one question that is often raised is this, ‘Is the modern State of Israel still God’s chosen people or has the Church replaced Israel?’ Who better to answer that question than a Jewish pastor in J’lem called Ofer Amitai.
This week my guest is Ofer Amitai. He is the pastor of a Messianic congregation in Jerusalem and knows his Bible well. Here he comments on the words of Jesus in Matthew 23 v 39, ‘You will not see me again until you say Blessed is He who comes in the name of the Lord’. Ofer believes no greater tragedy has befallen Israel than estrangement from her Messiah. I asked him what he meant by ‘estrangement’
Today my guest is Shukry who lives in the Old City of J’lem. Here he tells his story … a story of finding God in the midst of turmoil.
My guest today is called Eliezer Louvendal. His grandparents escaped from Poland and Germany during the war to escape the Holocaust, and settled in Argentina. Eliezer’s father later moved to Brazil which is where Eliezer was born and where he grew up. By the age of 21 he had finished his education and had a good job which paid a high salary. However, Eliezer knew there had to be more to life than earning money and owning an expensive car as he now describes.
