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.

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?
Whilst in Tiberias recently I came across an organisation called Israel Firstfruits that aims to encourage entrepreneurship amongst believers in the land, for both Jewish believers and Arab Christians. The founder and CEO of Israel Firstfruits is Mordechai Wiseman. He has an interesting story of his own … but first I asked him to explain his vision.
My guest today is Eric Benson, director of the House of Victory, a rehabilitation centre for addicts in northern Israel. He’s been there for many years and seen literally scores of men enter the house more dead than alive and leave well. I put it to him that he must be encouraged.
Recently I was in Haifa in northern Israel to meet Sergei Babaskin. Originally from the Crimea, his life has been full of surprising challenges and, as you will hear he now finds himself living in Israel.
Many Christians, maybe you are one, have questions about Israel and the Bible that need answers. One of those questions is, The Christian world is divided in its understanding of Israel and the Jewish people – how important is it that there is a right alignment between Jewish believers in Israel and gentile believers in the world in these days, which many believe are the end times, in preparation for the 2ndcoming of Jesus?
