Interview: Chris Katulka

When you think of the holidays, is heaven on your mind? For many of us, the thought of a loved one not being with us this Christmas brings heaven and eternal things to mind. But some may be so caught up in the busyness of the holiday season they may not give it a thought. This week, our executive producer Steve Conover sits down with our host Chris Katulka to talk about an article Chris wrote in Israel My Glory magazine entitled, “Home to Eden.” 

Chris will share how Greek philosophy has crept into Christians beliefs of heaven. They’ll also talk about what heaven will look like as well as talk about what happens to Christians when they die. Scripture talks about being raised when Christ returns, so what does that mean for us as believers when we die? 

The holidays are the perfect time to talk about eternity. It’s a time that we should all be reflecting on things to come. God came down to earth to reconcile us to God—what a time to worship our great God and meditate on His goodness to us. 


Heavenly Rewards

By Mark Hitchcock

When we think about Heaven, the good news is Salvation cannot be earned—it’s already yours in Christ Jesus. Heaven is about spending eternity with God, but how does your faithfulness to God today determine the rewards you receive in Heaven? Mark Hitchcock’s book, Heavenly Rewards, will uncover fascinating truths about how the life you live today determines your life in eternity.


Apples of Gold: Wisdom Without Faith is Useless

Zvi noticed that a popular rabbi was coming to his town to speak. He decided to go and see what the man had to say. With over 300 people in attendance the rabbi told everyone that they needed to gain knowledge over faith in God. After praying for courage, Zvi stood up and asked the rabbi some hard questions that didn’t end the way he expected. Listen and find out how God used him!

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.
