April 25, 2020 | How to Read Your Bible, Part Three

Importance of Context

We’re finishing our series where we’re going back to the basics, “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 context of the Bible. Last week we learned about the significance of the culture and the week before, geography. If you missed those episodes we encourage you to 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. If we know the context of the Bible, we can understand what God is saying and to whom He is speaking. And to drive home what Chris has been saying week after week, the Bible isn’t about you! It’s about God and what He is doing. Once these principles are in place, understanding God’s plan of redemption through the ages becomes easier. We hope you’ve enjoyed this 3-part series!

Apples of Gold: Holocaust Memorial Day

When Holocaust Memorial Day drew near, schools looked for survivors to come tell what they experienced during World War II. Since Zvi was one of the few remaining survivors able to tell his story, he was invited to speak at a school. But Zvi didn’t come just to share his experiences in the Holocaust; he came to give the true Word of God to all the students! Hear what happened in this perfect opportunity to speak of faith in Christ in a lesson that a group of school children would never forget.

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.
