The Bible has a lot to say about the Resurrection from the dead—both Yeshua’s and ours at the end of the age. To bring the dead to life in full glory is something the whole creation is yearning for (Rom 8:18-23). We will be raised in a resurrection body that [...]
A Personal Perspective – Asher Intrater In 2015, the Global Gathering took place in Munich, at the very stadium where Israeli athletes where murdered in the 1972 Olympics.

A Personal Perspective – Asher Intrater In the 1980's there were a series of meetings between Arab Christians and Messianic Jews to express our unity as believers in Yeshua. In the 1990's, after the First Intifada and Gulf War (1991), Arab Christians and Messianic Jews in Israel began to deal [...]
In Parts I & II we looked at the Biblical definition of Israel (People, Nation, Remnant) and a few ways in which Christians have been connecting with Israel in our generation. We discovered that according to Romans 11 and Ephesians 2 & 3, this relationship between Jew & Gentile, Israel [...]
