Prophetic Justice in Amos, Part 1 (REBROADCAST)
One word we seem to hear often in our society is “Justice.” Sadly, the word is being redefined from its true meaning. We’ve selected a favorite past episode to air this week, “Prophetic Justice in Amos.” It’s interesting that many shy away from the minor prophets in the Bible, especially when it is there that we see the heart of God so clearly. And one issue very close to God’s heart is justice. Israel seemed to have it all during the days of Amos, yet in this time of prosperity, they lost sight of true worship. When you lose sight of that, you lose sight of what is important to God. We think you’ll see the parallel in our lives as believers, especially in the western world. We’ll finish our program with Apples of Gold, a dramatic reading from the life of Holocaust survivor Zvi Kalisher.

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.
