Palm Sunday and prophecy! The image of Jesus riding into Jerusalem on a colt, the foal of a donkey, comes right from the prophecy of Zechariah 9. But that’s not the only prophecy fulfilled on Palm Sunday. Another prophecy—perhaps one of the most dramatic in all the Bible—also intersects with that amazing day. The prophecy is found in Daniel 9. And this week we’ll turn the microphone around and point it at Charlie as he and Jon discuss “Everything You Always Wanted to Know about Daniel 9.”

Then later in the program we’ll visit the Mount of Olives to hear the #1 song on the hit parade that original Palm Sunday morning! The Land and the Book


Hosts: Dr. Charlie Dyer and Jon Gauger

Pastor, Prolific author. Bible teacher. Dean. Professor…and Moody Bible Institute Alumnus of the Year! Those are just some of the ways to describe Dr. Harold Willmington from Liberty University! We’ll be talking with Dr. Willmington about two of our favorite topics—Israel and the Bible!

And in our devotional time we’ll travel just north of Jerusalem to conclude our two-part series on Jeremiah and the bullies of Anathoth! The Land and the Book

Webster's dictionary defines "serendipity" as luck that takes the form of finding things we're not looking for. We know that with God there isn't such a thing as luck or coincidence, but we still use those words to describe how things seem to happen in our lives. The word serendipity does describe how we came to learn about this week's guest. Dr. Randy White shares our same passion for Israel and the Bible… and you will come to appreciate his wisdom and insight as much as we have.

Then later in the program, during our devotional time, we're traveling to Jeremiah's hometown to learn about the bullies of Anathoth. The Land and the Book

Most of the news from the Middle East is depressing. It's easy to become discouraged and wonder if there is any hope for that part of the world. Thankfully, the answer is yes! God is working in amazing ways, though much of what He's doing goes unreported. Today's guest knows this firsthand because he serves on the frontlines of ministry, bringing help and hope to thousands.

Then later in the program, during our devotional time, we'll be concluding our study of eight unusual plants in the Bible by visiting with the bramble… the king of the trees! The Land and the Book

Break out the noisemakers and dress the kids in costumes! No, it's not New Year's Eve or Halloween. It's the Jewish festival of Purim, celebrated this weekend. Our guest will be Justin Kron from Chosen People Ministries, who will help us get into the spirit of this Jewish festival.

Then in our devotional time we'll be continuing our study of eight unusual plants in the Bible by focusing on fragrant myrtle… a plant that's very appropriate for Purim! The Land and the Book

The battle for control of the Middle East is being fought on the ground and in the media. Most don't have the time or ability to sift through all the different news reports to sort out fact from fiction, or truth from error. And that's why organizations like the Committee for Accuracy in the Middle East Reporting in America, known by its acronym CAMERA, are so important. The week's guest is Dexter Van Zile, who has served as the Christian Media Analyst for CAMERA since 2006.

Then later in the program, we'll be continuing our study of eight unusual plants in the Bible by climbing up in the sycamore tree... with Amos the prophet and Zacchaeus the wee little man! The Land and the Book

Most of the news we hear out of the Middle East focuses on war, religious conflict, hatred, and terrorism. This week we’re going to try to change that perception. We sat down with Naim and Steven Khoury on our last trip to Israel and talked with them about the good things God is doing in that strife-torn part of the world. You will be surprised and encouraged by the conversation! 

And our devotional this week continues our eight-week series on unusual plants in the Bible. We’ll be heading into the wilderness with Elijah to see the bush he used for shade! The Land and the Book

During our trip to Israel this past fall we sat down with Dr. Erez Soref, President of Israel College of the Bible, to talk about the Messianic movement in Israel, the relationship between Jewish and Arab believers, and “the rest of the story” about what’s happening in Israel that’s not being reported in the media. You will be amazed and encourage by this rather eye-opening conversation!

Then later in the program, during our devotional time, we’re continuing our study of eight unusual plants in the Bible by traveling to Beersheba to view a tamarisk tree! The Land and the Book

February 15, 2014 - February 19, 2014

February 14 is Valentine’s Day, so it seems appropriate to have a husband/wife team with us on the program as our guests. But they’re not coming to talk about Valentine’s Day! Instead, we want to talk with them about what it’s like to travel to Israel as a couple. What are the challenges, and blessings, of visiting the Holy Land together?

Then in our devotional time we’re continuing our study of eight unusual plants in the Bible by looking at the majestic cedar tree! The Land and the Book

February 8, 2014 - February 12, 2014

Some of the greatest—and grandest—stories ever written come right off the pages of the Old Testament. The stories are historical, and true, but could God also have intended for us to understand them as drama…to be read aloud and acted out as plays? It’s an interesting concept, and this week’s guest will share how doing so can provide additional understanding about the narratives of the Bible.

Then later in the program we’re continuing our study of eight unusual plants in the Bible by looking at the lowly hyssop—a small plant that plays a major role in God’s Word. The Land and the Book

February 1, 2014 - February 5, 2014

We had so much fun with Stefan Silver and Eitan Bar from One for Israel during our last visit that we’re inviting them back to share more stories about the creative ways they are reaching out to Israeli Jews and Arabs with the good news about Yeshua.

And our devotional this week begins an eight-week series on unusual plants in the Bible. The focus this week is on the caperberry…a plant mentioned just one time in the Bible! The Land and the Book

Most of us know, at least in our heads, that the price of discipleship can be high. Jesus Himself said, “If anyone wishes to come after Me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross, and follow Me.” But let’s face it, for most of us the cost of following Jesus hasn’t been that great…at least not yet. But that’s not true of this week’s guests. Naim and Steven Khoury are a father/son team who pastor churches in Bethlehem and Jerusalem, and we caught up with them during our last trip to Israel. You will find their stories to be inspiring…and challenging!

Then in our devotional time together we’ll sit at the entrance to Beersheba to discover what the Bible really means when it talks about sitting under our vine and under our fig tree! The Land and the Book

A Bible college with a radio outreach. Sounds like Moody Bible Institute, but the school we're focusing on this week happens to be in Israel! Israel College of the Bible trains students to serve the risen Messiah while also instructing them in the Jewish roots of their faith. At the same time the school uses cutting edge technology, including internet radio, to make an impact on society. And at its helm is this week's guest, Dr. Erez Soref—a man of courage, conviction, and faith. We caught up with Erez on our last trip to Israel and sat down with him to talk about the impact Israel College of the Bible is having on the land of Israel.

Our devotional this week takes us to the ancient city of Bethsaida near the Sea of Galilee. Something fishy is happening in this town, and we'll explore what it is! The Land and the Book

We’re bringing Shahar Shilo back for an encore performance! Webster’s Dictionary defines a guide as someone who leads or directs another’s way and who explains points of interest. In Israel a guide is all that, and so much more. A good guide knows the geography, history, and archaeology of a site…and its connection to the Bible. The guide has to be part tour director, part entertainer, part Bible scholar…and part psychologist. And you’ll discover that Shahar Shilo is all that and more as he takes us on an unscripted tour of Israel! The Land and the Book

If you've travelled to Israel, you know the importance of a good guide—someone who can walk you across a site and then coax the history of that site from the very stones piled up all around. Someone who can lead you to a vista and then paint the stories of the Bible onto that three-dimensional canvas. This week's guest is just such a guide! In fact, Shahar Shilo is the master guide who teaches other guides! We'll talk with Shahar about guiding and about the latest discoveries in the City of David.

Then, later in the program we're hiking up Mount Arbel for a breathtaking view of the Sea of Galilee and a clearer understanding of Isaiah 9. The Land and the Book
