Pictures of Christ From the Psalms, Part 2
We’re on to part two of our series entitled, “Pictures of Christ from the Psalms” which highlights different characteristics of the Messiah in the Psalms. Chris reminds us that it’s important to remember that these types of Psalms have dual purpose. They were about Jesus but also applicable for the day they were written. We’re in Psalm 72 this week where we’ll learn how King David and King Solomon were both essentially “messiahs” (notice the lowercase “m”). Listen as Chris explains.
Be encouraged as we look at Jesus’ authority as well as kindness, mercy and grace that He extends to those who follow Him. He’s a good King that is good to us!

30 Days in the Land of the Psalms
The Jewish and Christian communities read the Psalms regularly, but have you thought about how much we’re missing not knowing the setting in which they were written? Many of the Psalms remain a mystery because the authors make reference to places we’ve never been.
Dr. Charlie Dyer skillfully brings a select number of Psalms to life in his new book 30 Days in the Land of the Psalms. This one-month devotional will take you on an extraordinary journey to the land of Israel.

Apples of Gold: Rabbi on the Bus
As Zvi was riding the bus one day he saw a local rabbi and greeted him. The rabbi glared at him and did not respond. Zvi was kind to the rabbi and when confronted about believing in Jesus the Messiah he gently took verses from the Bible and showed him and others on the bus why he believed it to be true. What happened next surprised the rabbi and changed his attitude.
Zvi’s story is available in Elwood McQuaid’s book, “Zvi: The Miraculous Story of Triumph over the Holocaust,” available at our online store.
More stories from Zvi are also available in his book, “The Best of Zvi,” available at our online store.
The Friends of Israel Today and Apples of Gold theme music was composed and performed by Jeremy Strong.
