So how’s your knowledge base on the disciples of Jesus? You surely know about Simon Peter, Andrew, James and John. No doubt, you’ve heard of Judas Iscariot!
But did you know that one of the disciples was a twin, or that some women were also following Jesus on a regular basis? It’s all there, hidden in plain sight on the pages of your Bible!
Here’s a “Meet the Disciples Fact Sheet” that will entertain, enlighten and inspire you.
Our Sept. 8 audio podcast will focus on the women around Jesus. Our Sept. 15 audio podcast will push past all the non-biblical spin on Judas Iscariot to see what the Bible clearly says about his decisions to betray Jesus.
Our new podcast is off and running with a double-punch. Our audio podcasts are published each Tuesday. On Sundays, our “videocasts” offer an incredible combination of teaching and visual images from the land of the Bible.
In addition, many of our podcasts will offer free downloads of the background video clips for pastors, Bible teachers and small-group leaders.
The COVID-19 pandemic has closed the borders of Israel and severely restricted our opportunities to host Experience Israel Now conferences in churches, schools or prisons.
Solution to the challenge? We’re podcasting!
“Secrets from the Ancient Paths” will feature at least one audio segment a week, one video segment each week and occasional interviews. The audio podcasts will have teaching on the historical and cultural background of biblical texts.
The video lessons will feature lessons from the land, complimented by photographs, video clips and our unique drone video footage from biblical locations in Israel.
Our first interview was with Boaz Shalgi, a tour guide for many of our EIN groups traveling in Israel. He gave us an update on life in the midst of the pandemic and spoke with Pastor Andy Cook about the Jewish understanding of Shabbat.
More than 1,300 people get our Photo of the Day five days a week in their e-mail inbox. Imagine getting a quick look at a visual lesson more than 250 times a year! It’s easy to sign up. Just use the sign-up form on the right side of any page on our website.
Military officials cleared the last land mines from an area near Jericho long believed to be the baptismal site of Jesus. The land-mine clearing work has been going on for two years. This explosive finale came on March 13, 2020. For the first time in 50 years, a number of chapels in the area are accessible. Watch this short video to see why we’ve not been taking tourists to this area!
