May 30, 2020 | Encountering Jesus, Part Three: The Syrophoenician Woman

Jesus’ Encounter with the Syrophoenician Woman

Jesus spent much of His ministry among the masses, but He also had several life-changing, one-on-one encounters with people who needed exactly what He offered. In part 3 of our three-week series, we’re examining Jesus’ radical encounter with the Syrophoenician woman found in Matthew 15.

This encounter may seem confusing and harsh to those of us who do not understand the context or surroundings of what was going on in this story. Chris walks us through verse-by-verse to explain how a plea for a daughter’s healing changed this woman’s life for eternity!

Apples of Gold: Upon Them a Light has Shined

Once every two months, Zvi would take his wife to the hospital for a checkup on her eye following her cornea transplant. During one visit, they sat next to two Russian priests and began conversing. The discussion quickly turned to the matter of faith. Zvi realized how little the priests knew of Christ and considered it his duty to share God’s Word with them. Listen to find out what happened when he brought the light of the gospel to these spiritually darkened men.

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.

  1. Shalom from Australia I have been in Zvi’s home twice. I sat beside him in the House of Redemption the year before the Lord took him Home. I still pray for Meno daily. I have visited Israel 8 times and conducted Israel Slide Presentations for over twenty years in Australia and several years in New Zealand. June 30 I expect to turn 87 years old
