We all see Jesus differently! Over the past two weeks we’ve explored how the Romans dismissed His ministry and the Jewish religious leaders of His day considered it a threat. But the common Jewish people were much more interested in our Savior. We hear about “The People of the Land,” the average Israelites of Jesus’ day, in this program as ... Read…
 
Even though He came to offer salvation from sin, not everyone loved Jesus. We saw that fact last week through the eyes of the Romans, who were more concerned with their empire than with the Lord of the universe. This week we look at Jesus through the eyes of the Pharisees and Sadducees. Their objection to the Savior was foolish, ... Read More The p…
 
Everyone views Jesus differently. Some think He was a prophet, others think He was a teacher, and still others think He was a common man. Of course, Christians worship Him as our loving Savior, the One we live to please and around whom we build our lives. For the next three weeks we’ll study what some important people groups thought ... Read More T…
 
One of our favorite Jewish holidays, Hanukkah, is coming up soon! Every year The Friends of Israel enjoys demonstrating love and support for the Jewish community by preparing Hanukkah baskets, which are filled with delicious foods from Israeli businesses. You can order them for yourselves as a Christmas or Hanukkah gift, but they’re especially touc…
 
As Election Day quickly approaches in the United States, many issues factor into people’s voting considerations. Everything from the economy to social issues to foreign affairs takes center stage, and citizens vote according to the proposed ideals that most align with their own. But one of the most significant positions believers take into effect w…
 
The Rapture is overlooked or purposely avoided by many today. This might leave you asking, “Is the Rapture really that important? Does the Bible even tell us anything definite about it?” You bet! The Rapture is a huge part of biblical prophecy and one of our greatest hopes as believers, and God’s Word tells us all we need to know ... Read More The …
 
Money can buy almost anything, but it can’t buy the satisfaction our souls crave. King Solomon learned this lesson and shared his wisdom in Ecclesiastes. Solomon teaches about injustice, oppression, wealth, and the key to a meaningful life—crucial subjects with answers our world is desperately searching for today. Chris digs into Peter Colón’s Isra…
 
Israel has sure been busy lately. This week we’re covering the most encouraging development in the region: Israel’s recent peace deals with the United Arab Emirates and with Bahrain, which we’re discussing with Steve Herzig, our director of North American Ministries here at The Friends of Israel. As positive as the agreements are, they may be just …
 
Every year at Christmas we are reminded that God came to Earth to dwell with humanity. Likewise, the Jewish holiday Sukkot, also called the Feast of Tabernacles, is a time to remember when God dwelled with people, specifically His Chosen People, in the Old Testament. This holiday celebrates God’s presence among the Israelites during their 40 years …
 
Yom Kippur is a special Jewish holiday. Where other holidays focus on feasting, this one focuses on fasting. Where others cause people to celebrate joyfully, this one causes people to pray remorsefully. This is a day to ask God to cover and forgive sins. Whereas sacrifices covered sins individually in the Old Testament, repentance at Yom Kippur cov…
 
Even though we’re far from January 1, this weekend marks a New Year celebration—Rosh Hashanah, the fall feast that celebrates the Jewish New Year. God established this holiday as the Feast of Trumpets for the Israelites in Leviticus. It’s a happy celebration but also one of remembrance. Nothing symbolizes this better than the shofar, which is blown…
 
Fall is a special time of year for many, but it’s especially loved by the Jewish people. Several major feasts mark this season—Rosh Hashanah, the Ten Days of Awe, Yom Kippur, and Sukkot. These are times of celebration and introspection focusing on the Lord’s goodness, provision, mercy, and holiness. They are days to rejoice, reflect, and remember w…
 
Anti-Semitism takes many forms—some of which are subtle enough to go unchecked. It has led to a culture that still finds Jewish people facing harassment and violence. That’s why the work of StandWithUs, an organization that supports Israel and fights anti-Semitism around the world, is so important. Our guest this week is Paula Joffe, the executive …
 
I really messed up. God’s not going to forgive me this time. Can you relate to this feeling? Paul addressed this sentiment in Romans 11, the chapter we’re studying in the conclusion of our 3-part series on why Israel still matters to God. Some were questioning if Israel’s sins had caused God to reject them altogether. The comforting answer: Absolut…
 
Salvation is the blessed hope of everyone who accepts Jesus’ sacrifice to forgive their sins. In Romans 10, Paul shares that his greatest desire and prayer was for the Israelites to be saved. But his message was hard for them to understand. Though they had zeal, it was misplaced. They focused on earning righteousness by keeping the Law, when they .…
 
Here’s a sad thought: Many churches and Christian leaders teach that Israel, the nation of God’s Chosen People, doesn’t matter to God anymore. Much of the world feels the same way. But how can this be? Maybe these people just need to read Romans 9–11. We’re studying these three chapters in our three-part series “Israel Still Matters to God.” We’ll …
 
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 .…
 
This week marked the observance of Tisha B’Av, the saddest day on the Jewish calendar. It’s the anniversary of many tragedies—the destruction of both the First and Second Temples, the expulsion of the Jewish people from England in 1290 and from Spain in 1492, and more. Remembering these painful memories eventually takes its toll. That’s why some ra…
 
This program is a rebroadcast from September 28, 2019. This week we’re concluding our series on the book of Amos. Learning about true justice, biblical justice, gives us a glimpse into what is close to God’s heart. The prophet Amos was called to shine a light on God’s imminent judgment that was coming for Israel. There was an abuse of ... Read More…
 
This program is a rebroadcast from September 21, 2019. We are continuing our series in the book of Amos. We have been learning that justice is close to the heart of God. Looking at Israel from the outside in the time of Amos, one would believe God was blessing them. They had abundant wealth and peace throughout the land. So ... Read More The post J…
 
This program is a rebroadcast from September 14, 2019. We are continuing our series in the book of Amos, looking at true biblical justice. As we learned last week, justice is close to the heart of God. This week Chris takes us into the economic climate of Israel. Spoiler alert: It was GOOD! During this time of wealth and prosperity, ... Read More T…
 
This program is a rebroadcast from September 7, 2019. One word we seem to hear often in our society is “Justice.” Sadly, the word is being redefined from its true meaning. We’ve selected a favorite past episode to air this week, “Prophetic Justice in Amos.” Where can we find the true meaning of justice? God’s Word! It’s interesting that many ... Re…
 
Because its people chased after other gods, Israel became an unfaithful bride to God. But instead of settling for a broken relationship, in His mercy God promised a New Covenant, ultimately fulfilled by Jesus. Now all people have access to a personal relationship with Him! As we wrap up our three-part series on the New Covenant this week, we discus…
 
Jesus came to Earth to radically change the hearts of the Israelites and to bring forgiveness for the sins of the world. Because of Jesus’ blood, the New Covenant brings blessing to Israel and all who place their faith in Him for salvation. In part 2 of our three-week series on the New Covenant, we’re remembering and celebrating how Jesus’ ... Read…
 
Surrender! That was the prophet Jeremiah’s message to the people of Judah. God was going to use Babylon to judge His people, and the Israelites’ disobedience meant nothing could stop the disaster to come. But in one of their darkest moments, God made a new promise to His people. This week we’ll begin our series analyzing this New Covenant that ... …
 
Israel’s enemies are relentless. For as long as the Jewish people have existed, powerful nations have tried to dispossess them of their identity, land, and lives. Israel never seems to get a chance to catch its breath since it always faces destruction. It’s a good thing God is Israel’s protector! This week Chris speaks with Bruce Scott to talk abou…
 
Jesus spent much of His ministry among the masses, but He also had several life-changing, one-on-one encounters with people who needed exactly what He offered. In part 3 of our three-week series, we’re examining Jesus’ radical encounter with the Syrophoenician woman found in Matthew 15. This encounter may seem confusing and harsh to those of us who…
 
Jesus spent much of His ministry among the masses, but He also had several life-changing, one-on-one encounters with people who needed exactly what He offered. In part 2 of our three-week series, we’re examining Jesus’ surprising yet divinely planned conversation with the Samaritan woman at the well in John 4. On the surface, this meeting made no s…
 
If you have read the gospels, you know that a lot of times Jesus spoke to the masses. Jesus had quite the following during His time ministering on earth. But we also find in the gospels a few personal encounters with individuals. We’re beginning a new three-week series looking into key conversations Jesus had with individuals. This week we’ll learn…
 
As Christian Zionists we believe it’s important to understand how Israel became a nation in 1948. It wasn’t simply one event but years and years of events, resolutions, and the buying and selling of land that led to the rebirth of Israel—all under the watchful eye of God. Today we’re learning about the San Remo Conference. This important conference…
 
We are headed halfway across the world this week as we share with you about our exciting ministry in New Zealand! We welcome Simon Lawry, a Friends of Israel ministry representative to the program.

In a few short days, the world has seemingly halted normal life because of the virus, COVID-19. When recording this broadcast, the virus was simply a talking point to many.
