    People You Ought to Consider Supporting

    Like you, Chris and I scramble at the end of the year asking the question, “Who should we send a year-end gift to?” It’s sort of a weird tradition. I mean, it all counts the same in both God’s eyes and in the eyes of …

    Jesus and Jeremiah: The Weeping Prophets

    Charles Spurgeon, speaking to a young pastor, once said: “Don’t you know, young man, that from every town, and every village, and every little hamlet in England, wherever it may be, there is a road to London? And so from every text in Scripture there …

    Israel: A Homeland for All Jews?

    Brian Newman is a good friend. I know him. I trust him. He’s 100% Jewish and yet believes that Jesus of Nazareth was and is the Messiah that many Jews are still waiting for. He doesn’t think of himself as “Christian.” He’s Jewish. Brian’s heart …

The only real threat to Israel is the Hezbollah of Lebanon.

  • Israel, “Replacement Theology” and Jesus’ Kingdom

    I am often asked about my “position on Israel.” In fact, it may be the #1 question Christians ask me.  Non-Christians (of any stripe) never ask me that.  It’s a fair question and deserves a thoughtful response. Some of you don’t care, but for those …

  • Further Understanding of the Modern Middle East

    Turkey, Iran and Sudan are on the edges. Sometimes they are lumped in with the “Middle East” but not always. Turkey is quite different from the Arab countries. They are Turks and speak Turkish for starters. Iran is also not Arab. They are Persian and speak Farsi. Sudan is Arab in the north and tribal non-Arabic speaking in the South (the country is in the process of becoming two as we speak).
