Finding Jesus in Israel:Through the Holy Land on the Road Less Traveled Buck Storm
Part travel journal but mostly spiritual guide, Finding Jesus in Israel takes an unvarnished look at the Holy Land with an off-the-bus peek into the people and places that make Israel such an amazing destination. We are shaped and transformed by the oceans we sail, the deserts, mountains, and valleys we wander, and the people we meet along the way. And as any traveler worth his salt knows, the real trip happens within. Most Israel books are presented with a political, theological, or social agenda. Some are simply tourist guidebooks. Finding Jesus in Israel isn´t driven by agenda but rather it is a traveler´s journey - a book for travel veterans, people with wanderlust, or individuals who just love a good story. 1.

If you want to understand who Christ is, you have to begin by understanding what Jesus meant when he said in Luke 24:27, ´´And beginning with Moses and all the prophets, he explained to them what was said in all the Scriptures concerning himself´´ (NIV). In Finding Jesus in the Exodus, biblical scholar Nicholas Perrin shows that the Bible´s story of the Exodus from beginning to end is filled with prophetic foretellings of the person and work of Christ: Moses as a great deliver and prophet The voice in the burning bush The Passover Lamb of God The unleavened bread The rock and pillar of cloud The red sea crossing The manna from heaven You will see all of these and more as examples of Christ in the story of the Exodus. 1.

This dusty 4,000-year-old clay tablet, written in an ancient script called cuneiform, turns out to be a recipe for building an Ark. Then, Mishy Harman is the host of the Israel Story radio program. The first season of Israel Story in English starts August 18th on the Vox Tablet podcast. Next, biblical archaeology can rewrite and reshape history. But there’s theology at stake, too. Like when the Gnostic Gospels were discovered in 1945 buried in the Egypt. That´s followed by Samuel Delany’s review of Call Me Ishmael by Charles Olson. Finally, Like you, we were shocked this week to hear about the death of Robin Williams. His softer side shines through in a conversation he had with fellow comedian Marc Maron a few years ago, on Maron’s WTF podcast. [Broadcast Date: August 13, 2014] 1. Language: English.

´´You don´t want a messianic apocalyptic cult controlling atomic bombs.” (Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu)Welcome to the Middle East, where Israel and her neighbors have been engaged in diplomatic and military conflicts for nearly 64 years, with roots in the disputes dating back over 2,000 years of history. Founded in May 1948, Israel faced annihilation from the moment the state declared independence, finding itself invaded by Arab armies hoping to put an end to it before it had barely been born. Israel has since grown into the region’s strongest military power, but it continues to face existential threats that leave its position perilous in ways more dangerous than any it has faced in more than 40 years. In fact, the world has been on edge for months over the standoff between Israel and Iran. With Iran seemingly racing toward a nuclear bomb and showing no signs of relenting, all eyes are on the two sides´ covert shadow war (including assassinations and cyber warfare) and ultimately whether Israel and/or the US will use force to stop them. In Israel and Her Enemies, the authors of Decoding the Conflict Between Israel and the Palestinians recount the history of all the conflicts between Israel and her neighbors, while also getting listeners up to speed on where things stand now between Israel and nations like Iran and Syria, as well as relations between Israel and substate groups like Hamas, the Palestinian Authority, and Hezbollah. Along with analysis and anecdotes of important events and people, Israel and Her Enemies is the perfect starting point for understanding how the Middle East conflicts have gotten to where they are at today and what the future may hold. 1.

Many are beginning to explore the ancient Christian spiritual practices that have been in use for centuries, everything from fixed-hour prayer to fasting to sincere observance of the Sabbath. What is causing this hunger for deeper spirituality?Brian McLaren guides us on this quest for an explanation of these spiritual practices, many of which go all the way back to Abraham and the establishment of Israel.

For centuries, historians have speculated that the Queen of Sheba is nothing more than a seductive legend; but when undercover agent Omar Zagouri finds a tomb in a tunnel beneath Jerusalem, he unearths cryptic clues that may lead to the queen´s final resting place. This discovery, if authentic, could throw into question the governmental claim to the Holy Land - and prove the Bible false. Wealthy collectors, ruthless archaeologists, and officials from Egypt, Ethiopia, Israel, and Yemen scramble to find and lay claim to the secret site. Dr. Richard Lyon of Brown University, the world´s leading expert on the queen, is found murdered in his office, setting off a chain of deadly events. Omar desperately works to piece together the puzzle to locate the queen´s burial ground, fearing another assassination will take place. He teams up with one of Lyon´s protégées as well as with his ex-girlfriend, agent Mia Golding, in order to unravel the truth about the queen, expose a murderer, and reveal a timeless story of love, revenge, and sacrifice. 1.
