March/April 2023 edition

Israel shines her light brightly as she extends her helping hand to Turkey in the aftermath of their devasting earthquakes.

In our Current Events section on page 8, read how the ICEJ quickly partnered with Israeli first responders, United Hatzalah, in their efforts to help bring urgent aid and relief to Turkey.

This edition of the Word from Jerusalem magazine also features two informative Biblical teachings. In ‘Abraham Saw my Day’, ICEJ President Dr. Jürgen Bühler continues his teaching on Abraham, starting with the verse from John 8:56 “Your father Abraham rejoiced to see My day, and he saw it and was glad”. He then takes you on the journey to Abraham’s sacrificial dedication of Isaac to God’s purposes, as he sees God’s willingness to give His ultimate sacrificial gift to save the world.

In the teaching ‘Witnesses of Israel’s Resurrection,’ ICEJ Vice President & Senior Spokesman David Parsons looks at the added meaning of being a “witness” in the Hebrew mindset, and at God’s resurrection power in reviving national Israel even as the modern-day nation prepares to turn 75 years old.

Find out more about Israel’s security challenges on page 9 by reading an excerpt from our recent Webinar with IDF (Res) Brig. Gen. Amir Avivi of the Israel Defense and Security Forum, as he explains both the external and internal challenges facing Israel today.

Be blessed to see how your generous support is enabling the ICEJ to impact Israeli lives, as you read the incredible Aliyah and Aid projects underway and discover how learning Hebrew at the ICEJ Haifa Home is helping Holocaust Survivors to grow deeper roots in the Land of their forefathers. It is an honour to care for these precious Holocaust survivors and ensure their happiness in the last years of their lives.

Be sure to also read the Hebraic Roots and Biblical Archaeology pages, which offer an interesting article on the Great Legacy of the Hebrew Bible and the fascinating correlation of Israel’s National Rebirth and the Dead Sea Scrolls.

Thank you for partnering with the ICEJ in our efforts to bless and comfort the people of Israel. Enjoy this edition of the Word from Jerusalem, and many blessings from Jerusalem to you and your family!
