Our guest is the spiritual "leader of leaders" for the US Senate-shepherding those on the front lines of the decisions that shape our culture. Today he shows all of us how to thrive in the midst of today's turbulence and confusion by following eight principles that Jesus gave his disciples prior to sending them into a dangerous world. These teachings are as relevant today as when Jesus first spoke them two thousand years ago.
Join us to hear a respected theologian review two decades of inquiry regarding the meaning of Israel and Judaism, addressing the perennially important issue of the relationship between Christianity and the people and land of Israel. You will hear a challenge to the widespread Christian assumption that since Jesus came to earth, Jews are no longer special to God as a people, and the land of Israel is no longer theologically significant. Prepare to hear a robust defense of a "New Christian Zionism."
