The Gospel in the Feasts of Israel
by Victor Buksbazen
We are in the middle of the fall Jewish holiday season and what better book to pair with what Chris is teaching in our series on the gospels than The Gospel in the Feasts of Israel. Learn how the ancient feasts interact with and illuminate the teachings of Jesus, the writings of the New Testament, and the message of the gospel. The author, former executive director of The Friends of Israel Gospel Ministry, Dr. Victor Buksbazen was a brilliant scholar who easily communicated his intimate understanding of the Holy Scriptures, Judaic studies, and the original languages of the biblical text.

Apples of Gold
A word fitly spoken is like apples of gold in settings of silver. -Proverbs 25:11
It was 1959 when the writings of Holocaust survivor Zvi Kalisher were first published in our magazine, Israel My Glory. And even though he passed into the Lord’s presence in November 2014 his column remains a source of inspiration to countless believers worldwide.
Many have said that Apples of Gold was where they would turn first after receiving the latest issue of the magazine. And within those pages they would marvel at how God used this extraordinary man in and around Jerusalem to reach people from all walks of life. His boldness to tell of the saving love of his Messiah has challenged and enriched all who knew him.
(Apples of Gold radio segments are dramatized readings of Zvi Kalisher’s Israel My Glory magazine articles. The voice of Zvi is portrayed by hall of fame broadcaster Mike Kellogg.)
