Eden to Eden, Part 6

We are in the final week of our six-part series entitled Eden to Eden. Do you have the wrong idea of what heaven will be like? Chris will share how God’s pursuit to be with us begins at the Garden of Eden with the tree of life and ends with the tree of life in the New Jerusalem. We hope you have been blessed by this series as we have looked at the grand story of the BIble. Chris will then explain why the Palestinian leadership keeps missing the opportunity for peace. We’ll end our program with Apples of Gold, a dramatic reading from the life of Zvi Kalisher.

They Called Her Miriam

BY VICTOR BUKSBAZEN

The Friends of Israel’s very first executive director, Dr. Victor Buksbazen, was not only a tremendous leader, he was a renowned author. That’s why we have resurrected his book, They Called Her Miriam: The Virgin of Nazareth. Dr. Buksbazen strips away the stereotypes, legends, myths, dogma, and misplaced piety that comes with the name Mary and restores to readers her Hebrew name, Miriam – connecting us to the real, historical scriptural image of the Mother of our Savior.
