    The Oneness of God, Part I

    Jerusalem—city of three monotheistic religions. Here, Jews, Christians, and Muslims agree that there is only one true God. The agreement ends, however, when one of them claims that the one true God is made up of three distinct coequal, coeternal Persons. For Israeli pastor Meno Kalisher, believing in one triune God isn’t just doctrinal. It’s as personal and as important as any conclusion could be. Discover “The Oneness of God.”

    An intriguing dialogue about the history of Israel when the prophet Hosea came on the scene

    Thursday, May 24, 2012, Part 2

    “When the Lord began to speak to Hosea, the Lord said to Hosea, ‘Go, take yourself a wife of harlotry and children of harlotry, for the land has committed great harlotry by departing from the Lord.’ So he went and took Gomer, the daughter of Diblaim, and she conceived and bore him a son” (Hosea 1:2-3).

    IDEA: God commands the prophet to marry a promiscuous woman. People in our culture are not upset by her sexual looseness, but that God commanded it.

    PURPOSE: To help listeners grapple with the fact that God seems to commend what we think He should condemn.

    The Dispersion of the Jewish People, Part I

    In better times, the ancient nation of Israel was a model of monotheistic culture and international peace. In and around the city of Jerusalem, the Jewish people worshiped their God and basked in the wisdom and wealth of King Solomon, the son of David. A thousand years later, the peace and prosperity were gone. Only rubble marked the spot of Solomon's temple and palace. What scattered "a chosen people" from their "promised land"?

    The Restoration of Israel, Part II

    Throughout history, civilizations have come and gone. But none have returned-except for one. After surviving dispersion among the nations of the world for almost 2,000 years, the Jewish people have returned by the millions to their ancestral homeland. Is this re-emergence of a nation mere coincidence or the fulfillment of ancient prophecies?
