Israel, The Center of the World

We hope you’ve been enjoying our series The Common Thread. Have you ever thought how intricately the Bible is woven together? We shouldn’t be surprised that God has connected His entire Word from Genesis to Revelation but most of us have never thought about it. What is that common thread? It’s found in Genesis 12. God called a man, Abraham, to step out in faith. He promised three things: land, people, and blessing. If you are a follower of Jesus, you are a benefit of the blessing!

This week we focus on God giving the Jewish people a particular piece land. Out of all the places in the world, the land of Israel is what God chose to give them. But why?  Chris will explain how God led His people there and made this area the center of the world.

We aren’t always aware of the “why” when it comes to God and His ways. He is able to do what He pleases when He pleases. But sometimes He is merciful to give us a glimpse into His ways and giving the Jewish people the land of Israel is one of those instances—it is the center of the world! People were coming through the land from all over the world and the Jewish people had an opportunity to share with these travelers about Elyon: the Most High God. So how does this relate to us as believers in Jesus? Listen and find out!

Apples of Gold: Then You Will See a Great Light

Zvi was stopped by a group of orthodox men who recognized him from a conversation he had with them once before. The men had many questions for Zvi because they knew he was a Christian. One question the men wanted to know is how God is Three in One: Father, Son and the Holy Spirit. Listen how Zvi took these men to their own Scriptures to show them the evidence of the Trinity.

Zvi’s story is available in Elwood McQuaid’s book, “Zvi: The Miraculous Story of Triumph over the Holocaust,” available at our online store.

More stories from Zvi are also available in his book, “The Best of Zvi,” available at our online store.


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