Bridges For Peace: Christians supporting Israel and building relationships

between Christians and Jews in Israel and around the world

Holding Out for God’s Best

By Rev. Nathan Williams, Deputy International Administration Director

As a global community, Bridges for Peace is reading through the entire Bible from cover to cover in 2019. For many Christians, reading through the Old Testament feels like an insurmountable task, especially by the time they get to the book of Leviticus and then Numbers. The trials and tribulations of the Children of Israel on their journey to the Promised Land is one that dominates the first five books of the Bible and can at times seem irrelevant to our modern-day lives. It may then come as a surprise that the apostle Paul related many of Israel’s experiences in the wilderness in his writings and wrote to the believers in Corinth that “…all these things happened to them as examples, and they were written for our admonition…” (1 Cor. 10:11). Within the first five books of the Bible we can find countless practical lessons on faith, obedience and the character of God. Let’s discover some of these lessons in the book of Numbers, lessons Paul thought important for this generation to learn.    Continue reading…

A Nobel Endeavor

By Jo Sarah Stanford, BFP Staff Writer

The Nobel Prize is considered one of, if not the, most prestigious award in recognizing outstanding achievements to science and humanity. The selection process is rigorous, and the award is given only to those who are best in their fields. Out of the 908 individuals who have been awarded the Nobel Prize, 205 have been Jewish. This is made all the more remarkable by the fact that the Jewish people comprise only 0.2% of the world’s population, yet they make up 22.6% of prize winners.   Continue reading…

To our friends in the Jewish Community – in Pittsburgh, around the United States, and around the world…

Jeremiah 23:9  My heart within me is broken, all my bones shake. (JPS)

We are broken-hearted with you. There are no adequate words. You do not stand alone. Bible-believing Christians, and Bridges for Peace friends in specific know that this evil man has touched the apple of God’s eye.  We grieve with you, we stand with you, and we tell all that you are not alone.

Psalm 147:3,6  Who healeth the broken in heart, and bindeth up their wounds. The LORD upholdeth the humble; He bringeth the wicked down to the ground. (JPS)

To our fellow Bible-believing Christians, and to the Bridges for Peace family in specific.  Now more than ever, standing with the Jewish people is standing with God. Pure evil has acted and claimed to act as a Christian.  This is a shame for all of us who truly follow the Jewish Rabbi from Nazareth.  Join us in sending a message of love, support, and unity to the Jewish Community.  Reach out in love and compassion. Prayer is our most important action now. Personally reaching out to your Jewish friends and neighbors to just say “you are not alone, and you do not mourn alone,” is second.

If you feel God’s call to send a donation of sympathy, you may send it to Bridges for Peace USA – noted as “Pittsburgh gift.”

Jim Solberg, National Director, on behalf of all the Bridges for Peace USA family

We grieve with you, we stand with you, and we tell all that you are not alone.
