April 11, 2020 | How to Read Your Bible, Part One

Importance of Geography

Happy Passover and Easter everyone!  We know everyone is celebrating in a unique way this year but isn’t it a comfort to know that Jesus died and conquered death? Praise the Lord that we have peace and comfort in knowing our Messiah, Jesus! This week we are starting a new series that we hope will be an encouragement. Chris will be teaching us how to read our Bible. We thought we would go back to the basics as we’re all home and have extra time to hopefully spend in God’s Word. Chris will walk us through the importance of geography this week.

Chris explains it this way, “The land of the Bible almost functions as it’s own character in the Scriptures. The land can be understood on a map but it should also be understood theologically. God has a purpose for the land in the Scriptures, it should be thought of prophetically.” This is why learning to properly read our Bibles is so important!

Apples of Gold: The Pesach Lamb

Zvi’s Passover celebration was always a blessed feast. Sometimes it would go into the early hours of the night. Many of his neighbors would listen outside expecting the Kalishers’ Passover to be different than what they are used to. But to their surprise, it was the same! When Zvi tried to show them how the Messiah is our Passover Lamb, they asked him to only show them from the Old Testament. Zvi did just that and they were amazed, giving him a chance to share his faith in Jesus with them.

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.
