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 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!

Programme 359: Eliel

Today we’re in Haifa in northern Israel talking to Eliel. He came to Israel from Uzbekistan along with his Jewish mother and two brothers when he was a teenager. But settling into Israeli life proved difficult for Eliel; he started mixing with bad company and became a drug addict. When his life had spiralled out of control, his mother heard about the House of Victory in Haifa – a rehabilitation house for addicts run by believers – and it was there Eliel’s addiction was broken and he came to faith in Jesus.
