OT218 – A former muslim Palestinian becomes a believer – a muslim background believer with Julia Fisher 1 of 2

Nov 20, 2014

Julia Fisher talks to a muslim background believer – Recently, I had the privilege of travelling into the West Bank to meet a man who used to be a Muslim, but who had become a believer in Jesus as a result of being given a Bible. For a Muslim to renounce his faith in Allah and the Koran and instead become a believer in Jesus is considered a crime deserving death. Having heard that there are considerable numbers of Muslims living in the majority Muslim population of the Palestinian West Bank who are becoming Christians, I was keen to hear a story first hand and bring this to you. The man you are about to hear lives in a small village that is 100% Muslim – he described the people he lives amongst as fanatical. I cannot tell you his name or how or where we met, but we recorded this interview in a car and the voices you hear are the former Muslim Palestinian man speaking in Hebrew through an interpreter.

Our aim is to build bridges… To build bridges of understanding and support, in a spirit of reconciliation, between believers (both Jewish and Arab) in the Holy Land (Israel and the Palestinian Areas) and Christians worldwide.
