Julia Fisher talks to David Firestein – he is a Russian Jew – his parents, who were brought up in Communist Russia and are atheists, came to Israel when he was 10 years old. As a young man, David became deeply disillusioned with life and attempted to commit suicide. However, he survived and lying in a hospital bed and seeing the grief stricken face of his mother, David realised God had spared his life. Shortly after, he came to understand that Jesus was his Messiah – that He had died for his sins – and gradually he came to believe in Jesus.
