April 18, 2020 | How to Read Your Bible, Part Two

Importance of Culture

We’re going back to the basics, with our series “How to Read Your Bible.” We thought as we’re all home and have extra time to hopefully spend in God’s Word this would be an encouragement to you. This week, Chris will walk us through the importance of knowing the culture of the Bible. Last week we learned about the significance of geography. If you missed that you can listen in our archive section here on our site. 

If you’ve listened to us before, you’ll know we talk a lot about how the Bible was written by Jewish men in a Jewish context. Learning about the culture of the Bible gives you a greater understanding of the Scriptures and we hope it will enhance your understanding!

Apples of Gold: So Long Our Hopes Are Not Yet Lost

Though Israel faced missile attacks from Iraq, many immigrants were entering Israel. Eager to share Scripture with people who had lived under Communist rule all their lives, Zvi began building friendships and sharing his faith. He knew that truth ultimately conquers, and he considered it an obligation to reach out to many of these immigrants. Hear how Zvi comforted them with the Word of God and prayed that the Lord alone would be their guide and lead them to truth.

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.
