Programme 259 – Yohanna (part 2 of 2)

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?

Programme 363: Daniel Yahav: 2 of 4

Daniel Yahav is a Messianic Jewish pastor in northern Israel. He has a deep understanding of the Bible so I asked him a question that is often heard in the UK, some Christians seem obsessed with Israel. So is the modern day state of Israel God’s chosen people? Is Israel still special or since the covenant has been broken and a new covenant established, has the church replaced Israel as God’s chosen people?

Programme 362: Daniel Yahav: 1 of 4

My guests on these programmes are believers in Jesus who live in Israel – Jewish, Arab and Palestinian people. The programmes are recorded in Israel where these people live today with all the pressures that go with living in the region. Some Christians however, maybe you are one, have questions that need answers. One of those questions is, In what ways were the Jews supposed to be a blessing to the nations. Were they supposed to be intercessors – if so what does that mean?

Programme 361: Nihad Salman

Today we’re in Bethlehem having lunch with Nihad Salman and his wife … Nihad is the pastor of an evangelical church there and it is important to understand that Christians in Bethlehem represent a tiny percentage of the population, the majority being Muslim. So you might think that they are afraid and discouraged. However, the reality is very different … here is a church sending out missionaries!
