The Land and the Book
Air Date October 4, 2014
Parts of this week’s program were recorded during our recent Land and the Book Live event at West Suburban Community Church just outside Chicago. This weekend falls on an important date for the Jewish calendar: Yom Kippur, the Day of Atonement…the holiest day of the year for the Jewish people. And this week’s guest is Roy Schwarcz, who will help us understand the historical and prophetic significance of this special day.
Then in our devotional time we’ll travel to Jerusalem with Charlie to explore Zechariah 12–13…God’s ultimate Yom Kippur.
Roy Schwarcz has been involved in Jewish ministries since 1975. He serves with Chosen People Ministries, and currently pastors one of the oldest Messianic congregations in the United States. In addition, he also leads weekly Bible studies in the Chicago business community.
