Encountering Jesus, Part Three: The Syrophoenician Woman

Many of Jesus’ most well-known moments on Earth took place among large crowds. But the Gospels also record times when Jesus had personal conversations with individuals—moments that would change their lives forever. In part 3 of our three-week series, we’re looking into Jesus’ radical encounter with the Syrophoenician woman found in Matthew 15. We’ll conclude our program with Apples of Gold, a dramatic reading from the life of Holocaust survivor Zvi Kalisher.

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.
