March 09, 2019 | The Common Thread, Part 9


In Chains for the Hope of Israel

We’re in the New Testament finding The Common Thread throughout the Bible and we’re answering the question, “How does God’s promise to Abraham in Genesis 12 bind the entire Bible together?” This week we learn how the Apostle Paul accomplished God’s plan to continue the “thread” to the Gentiles. Paul was called by God to be a missionary to the Gentiles but his heart was to see his brothers and sisters–the Jewish people–see that Jesus is the Messiah.

We’ll hear how Paul through God’s direction, made his way to Rome. Why would God send him there? You’ll have to listen and find out! And we’ll learn in Galatians 3 how Paul had Abraham and God’s promise to bless the world on his mind as he was writing to the church in Galatia.

Israel, My Home DVD

This DVD captures the spirit of the Jewish people as they turned adversity into opportunity. Beautifully filmed to capture the landscapes of the Holy Land, this film is a new look at the state of Israel and the fulfillment of God’s promise. One of the best ways to experience Israel is to see it yourself. But next to that is Israel My Home. Whether you’ve been to Israel or not, we highly encourage anyone who desires to encounter the holy land to purchase this DVD.


Apples of Gold: He is not Dead; He Lives!

Zvi prayed and asked God to open the doors for him to somehow allow him to be a part of a religious school. One day his neighbor asked him to take his place in guarding the school. This was something the parents took turns doing throughout the school year. Zvi was excited to see how God answered his prayers. Not only did God allow him to make contacts, listen to what happened as he spoke to the headmaster.

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.
