The Desert Will Blossom

{image_1}“The desert and the parched land will be glad; the wilderness will rejoice and blossom…” (Isaiah 35:1, NIV)

After seeing photos of the lush, green Galilee, an astonished friend once told me that she thought Israel was all desert. Well, Israel is not exactly all desert, but desert does make up almost 60% of the nation’s land mass.

Though Israel produces over 40 types of fruit and groves abound, especially in the North, one can’t describe what the Land looks like without mentioning its vineyards and grey-green olive groves.

October 10, 2011

The Jewish people are unique among all the peoples of the earth. Their covenant relationship with God sets them apart, as does their adherence to the Torah (Gen.–Deut.). However, their ability to maintain their Jewish identity, the tenants of Judaism, and even unity as a people during millennia of dispersion and relentless religious persecution is unparalleled in human history.
