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?
Today we’re in Jerusalem in an old shopping mall in the Jaffa Road to meet Katherine Snyder who is the director of a counselling service she started called Anchor of Hope. The Messianic body in Israel may be relatively small, but Katherine, a professional counsellor herself, knew for a long time that many people needed help but none was available. This is the story of how one woman followed her dream and is now seeing that dream realised.
On my last trip to Israel to record stories for this programme, I spent some time with Eddie Santoro. Born into a traditional Jewish family in America, he became a hippie but today he’s the pastor of a large Messianic congregation in Jerusalem. He’s recently recovered from brain cancer and was declared cancer free. After sharing his story, the next morning he woke up with pain in his throat …. had the cancer returned?
My guest today is Eddie Santoro who lives just outside Jerusalem where he is the pastor of a large Messianic congregation. In 2015, he had a huge shock when it was discovered he had a tumour on his brain. Today, he bravely shares how he coped with this life threatening disease.
Eddie Santoro and his wife Jackie left a successful life in America to move to Israel not quite knowing what the future would hold. Why did they do that?
