Joshua: Faithful Warrior

Compared to the Hebrew Scriptures, the Writings of the Apostles (New Testament) contain little about warfare and battle. Yet tucked away in Hebrews 11, “Hall of Faith” chapter, we find this roster of Israel’s illustrious war heroes: “And what more shall I say? For the time would fail me to tell of Gideon and Barak

Our Father

Repeatedly Jesus/Yeshua used the term “Father” to refer to God Almighty. According to Eric von Atzigen, “Jesus traveled and taught for three years. There are about 110 pages in the Bible dedicated to His ministry and message. We have approximately 25,000 words that Jesus spoke recorded in the Bible. Of those 25,000 words, Jesus taught

Moses’ Final Blessing, The “Lost” Chapters of Deuteronomy

Several years ago I had the privilege of writing a book for Bridges for Peace attempting to introduce Christian readers to the daily and weekly reading of the Torah (Gen.–Deut.), supported by a daily Christian devotion.

Jerusalem, the Place God Chose

Teddy Kollek, mayor of Jerusalem for nearly three decades, once said, “Everybody has two cities, his own and Jerusalem.” No one is indifferent to Jerusalem—one loves her, hates her, or is fascinated by her. No matter where I travel, I meet people who ask what it is

Our spiritual leaders speak eloquent messages teaching us the way to God. Many try to become perfect. Others recognizing their inability to

Our Hearts in Unison with His

Have you ever met anyone who really did not like to sing? It’s a rare occurrence. The vast majority of people enjoy singing, whether before a group of people or in front of the bathroom mirror, with a choir or in the shower. We sing in the car, we sing while we work, we sing

Lessons from Daniel

Daniel is an amazing biblical example of a man totally surrendered and committed to God; a man that God used then and has used through the ages until the present time. His prophecies are still considered relevant today as they relate to latter times. Jewish and Christian scholars study Daniel with great interest. In the

Prayer and Israel

In 1982, I was in my bedroom reading my Bible and praying about whether or not to join a trip to Israel. As I thumbed through my Bible, it fell open to Isaiah 62. The words leaped off the page. I felt like my soul was branded with these words, “For Zion’s sake I will
