Julia Fisher talks to Evan Thomas – The subject of Israel and the Middle East invokes strong reactions! How important it is therefore to understand, as Christians who believe the Bible, what God is doing there. It can come as a surprise to hear how few believers there are in Israel and the West Bank … their numbers represent a tiny percentage of the population. Yet, in the past 40 years those numbers have grown from a handful to several thousand today – so something is going on! Recently I met Evan Thomas in Netanya – he is a pastor of a Messianic congregation there called Beit Asaph. I asked him to explain the emergence of Messianic Judaism in Israel in recent history.
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.
