Following Jesus in a Land of Conflict

What began thousands of years ago as a promise to the nation of Israel has become a web of conflict between Arab and Jewish residents of the contested land that borders Egypt, Syria, Jordan, and the Mediterranean Sea. What should followers of Christ think about the conflict in the Middle East?

Should Christians take sides? Should believers support the peace process? What is the story and role of the chosen people? And what is Israel’s future?

In this 4-part Day of Discovery program, you’ll take a journey to the land of the Bible, modern Israel, with host Mart DeHaan for conversations with guests Nizar Touma and Avner Boskey. Join them as they discuss the impact this dispute has on their Arab and Jewish communities and as they address tough questions that arise about the role of followers of Christ in this controversy.

Through the wisdom of the Bible and their unique perspectives, discover how following Jesus can bring peace—even to those living in a land of conflict.

My Search for Messiah, Part I

For Christians (followers of Christ), Jesus is at the center of everything they believe. As a Jewish young man, Michael Rydelnik refused to even consider Jesus’ claim to be the promised Messiah of the Hebrew Scriptures. But when his own mother, a Holocaust survivor, revealed to her family that she now believed in Jesus, it divided their family.

Michael, in an effort to convince his mother that she was wrong, began to study the Messianic prophecies found in the Hebrew Bible, the Old Testament Scriptures. Little did he know that his efforts to find evidence to dissuade his mother from her faith in Jesus would in fact lead him to the Jewish Messiah.

Join Dr. Michael Rydelnik as he recounts his own personal journey of discovery in this 3-part series, “My Search for Messiah.”
