Chris Katulka: The Acts 1:6 Controversy

The apostles asked Jesus a crucial question moments before He ascended to heaven: “Lord, will You at this time restore the kingdom to Israel?” All the conditions felt right for Jesus to fulfill His apostles’ wish. So why did He not restore the Kingdom at that time? And why has their question been considered foolish?

This week Chris Katulka shares an in-depth look at his Israel My Glory article “The Acts 1:6 Controversy.” Though famous reformer John Calvin shamed the apostles for their question, the context reveals that their inquiry made more sense than Calvin thought. Chris explains why they actually asked the right question at the right time in the right place. But as we look at this crucial verse, we’ll get a closer look at why the Messiah must return to Earth before the Kingdom of God does.

Apples of Gold: Only God Can Send a Person to Paradise

During an election campaign in Israel, various candidates battled for the office of prime minister. One candidate in particular — a rabbi running on an ultra-Orthodox party ticket — placed an ad in the newspaper stating that God would judge those who did not give their votes to his political party. This bothered Zvi, and the Lord gave him the courage to go to the party’s headquarters to have a discussion about it. Listen to this week’s edition of Apples of Gold to find out what happened next!

Zvi’s story is available in Elwood McQuaid’s book, “Zvi: The Miraculous Story of Triumph over the Holocaust,” available at our online store.
