Perspectives on Jesus: The People of Israel

We all see Jesus differently! We’ve been exploring this fact for the past two weeks, as we’ve learned how the Romans dismissed His ministry and the Jewish religious leaders of His day considered it a threat. But some people were much more interested in our Savior. This week we hear about “The People of the Land,” the average Israelites of Jesus’ day. You might find these Jewish people more relatable than our previous groups, so listen closely this week for their view of the Messiah and how He changed their lives!

ISRAEL: Whose Land Is It Anyway?

The Jewish people want it. The Arabs want it. They both claim divine, legal, and historical rights to it. They have gone to war because of it. This controversy rages on because of one tiny piece of land in the Middle East: modern-day Israel. So the question is: Whose land is it anyway?

 

This booklet analyzes the Jewish and Arab claims to the land and makes sense of all the arguments surrounding the struggle. With historic, legal, and most importantly, biblical details about the land dispute, Whose Land Is It Anyway? will leave you with a clear, concise answer to how one should think about the land of Israel.
