Part II—Seeking Peace
Where are followers of Jesus when it comes to the peace process in the Middle East? It seems like we’re all over the place. Some say we’re peacemakers, and we’re on the side of peace. Others say that the Bible makes it clear: There will be no real peace until God intervenes, until Jesus the Messiah shows up. So what does that mean for us? Can we, from our hearts, really hope and work for peace, not only in the Middle East but anywhere in the world?
In a region marked by ethnic, religious, and political lines in the sand, Jesus said, “Blessed are the peacemakers.” But the rabbi from Nazareth also said there would be no real peace until He returns. So how do two of his followers— one Arab, the other Jewish—make sense of Jesus’ words? “Following Jesus in a Land of Conflict: An Arab and Jewish Conversation,” on this Day of Discovery.

Part III—Chosen People
One of the difficult questions raised by the Bible is this: If God is an impartial God, then what’s this about the chosen people? How could a God who doesn’t line up with anyone on the basis of their ethnic background or wealth or nationality choose one people at the expense of others? Or does He? “Following Jesus in a Land of Conflict: An Arab and Jewish Conversation” about the chosen people, on this Day of Discovery.

Part IV—Israel’s Future

1. it is not important how many christians in numbers have repented. it is only important to you that you repent .
2. jesus death redefined divinity . this is shown in the literary sense when the roman soldier commits treason by switching his allegiance away from ceasar as Son of God to Jeus when he says ”truly this was the Son of God ”. the rest of the ancient world followed suite, and the wolrd has never been the same .
3. what would christ say to those who looked on him as thier God ? you ask . he forgave sins and recieved worship whole others doubted. in that culture only God can forgive sins and receive worship . this is no later interpretation , for he was condemed to death by the fixed and established religious body of people who were fiercly monothiestic . they handed him over to the romans . ..to die. . because the death penalty was outlawed to jews during christ time . so they handed him over to the romans for a reason . and that reason was him talking upon himself all of the peragatives of deity .
when that is revealed to you as his risen from the dead like it was to me 36 years ago , you will then see by the 3rd eye of inner man that the gospel of christ is no myth but the absolute truth . and the only thing that can truly bring peace to the middle east , and the whole world .

‘We’re all aware of the conflict between the Jewish and Palestinian people’
hm, what ‘conflict’? thats like talking of the conflict between the german and jewish people in the days of nazism!
What we have is an acct of genocide being committed by pirating colonialists who think someone called God gave them the land and said to clear out the Caanaites…sorry palestinians
Did you watch any of the 4 26-minute videos? Please watch 1st, then comment. Part 2 is very good.
brian , jesus came in humility to change hearts thru those who believe in him so that there will be real peace from the inside out in the middle east. he came to redefine divinity . cause they both got it all wrong . that is why he died on the cross , in order to get the sky-god war-god out of peoples heads and hearts. it is God in the flesh . that is who he was and is and will ever be . period .
what was the first word out his mouth ”REPENT ”. that word simply means ”change your way of thinking ”……and believe the good news.
Look up the word, please, your definition of ‘repent’ appears wrong (as it remains with ‘atone’).
So, what did you think of this most intelligent discussion about Israel? How many of the 4 videos did you watch?
Nice , but jews did not die on the cross to redefine anything. Thats a later interpretation. What would christ say if he looked at those who claim him as their god! How many christians freally have ‘repented’?
