We have the greatest hope of all - a hope that is solid, steadfast and certain. We are citizens of God's Kingdom, and sons and daughters of the Most High God! He is continuing to unfold his plans and fulfill his word in our days, but he is not too busy to bend down and hear our prayers.
WHAT ESTHER TEACHES US ABOUT GOOD LEADERSHIP
The book of Esther is a brilliant story with twists and turns of intrigue, disaster and breakthrough. The key figures of power make an interesting study, but of course, it is the One behind the scenes who is really holding all the cards! Continue reading...
"HINENI": HERE I AM. SEND ME!
The late Leonard Cohen, great Jewish singer and songwriter, used this powerful Hebrew word, "Hineni" in one of his songs. He was a man who wrestled with God and sought the truth, but opened his heart with this cry of "Hineni". What does it mean? Continue reading...
SEEK AND YE SHALL FIND
Many are searching and thirsty for the truth, and we try to make sure that the truth about the Messiah is easily available for everyone to find online, and in the language and culture of Israel. Many are coming to faith in this way. Moti recently had received messages from an Ultra Orthodox Jewish man in his forties who has been finding out about Yeshua - please pray for him!
"Have you read the New Testament?"
- "I am studying it in secret."
"What do you think about Yeshua?"
- "My friends don't know..."
"What do you think about what Yeshua has done?"
- "Yeshua our Lord, our teacher and rabbi - King Messiah for ever and ever!"
ONLINE STUDIES FOR ISRAELIS TOO!
The semester at Israel College of the Bible is in full swing, with Israeli students coming from all over the country to study with us. You may know that we have online courses in English, but did you know that we also have courses in Hebrew, to enable Israeli students to get the qualifications they need even if theyworking full time, or live far away? They can study:
Old Testament Survey
New Testament Survey
Jewish / Christian Relations Throughout History
Issues in Jewish Apologetics
We are also working on a new course in Planting and Developing Congregations.
This will be the first academic course about church development taught by a local pastor, Meno Kalisher, who has completed his MA studies at Israel College of the Bible. The course is based on his personal experience of developing one of the strongest Messianic congregations in Israel.
We are getting ready to offer eight online Hebrew courses to students outside of Israel College of the Bible. Taken all together, these courses will grant a certificate in Messianic Service. This enables those who are in full time ministry and serve at their congregations and don't have time to travel and spend a day on campus, to get their qualifications completely online.
PLEASE PRAY FOR...
Three of our staff team are currently attending the Evangelical Theological Society conference, held in San Antonio Texas, to present scholarly papers on topics related to the Jewish roots of our faith and Jewish evangelism. They will also have a booth in the exhibit to represent Israel College of the Bible. Please pray they are able to be a blessing to the attendees there.
