Judges–Not to the Strong: Deborah and Barak

This week, in the continuation of our mini-series on the Old Testament book of Judges, Chris takes a deeper look at the lives of Deborah and Barak. You’ll learn from their story that in life we all need to be encouraged by other Christian friends and family in order to see beyond our own limited scope and to trust more in the Lord for His protection and provision in our lives.

Most failure among contemporary Christians is not caused by Goliath-sized problems. We are inclined to stumble when believing God and obeying the simple dictates of His Word are neglected. In Not to the Strong, Elwood McQuaid takes believers into the arena where their persistent foes are met.


Judges–Not to the Strong: Jephthah

To wrap up our series on the book of Judges, we turn our attention to the eleventh chapter of Judges and the story of Jephthah. His story is one of serving the Lord, and a lesson that oftentimes to do so we must sacrifice something we hold near and dear to our hearts.

Apples of Gold—Mourning the Children of My Youth

While walking along the street in an ultra-Orthodox section of Jerusalem, Zvi could hear school children singing an old song that reminded him of a time when he sang that same song as a child himself along with other children, many of whom perished in Nazi death camps. He desired for them to lament no longer and to call upon the Lord and rejoice in His salvation. Praying for guidance, Zvi entered the school to talk to the rabbi and the children. Hear what happens in this dramatic reading from the life of Holocaust survivor Zvi Kalisher.


The Friends of Israel Today and Apples of Gold theme music was composed and performed by Jeremy Strong.
