More Jews live in the modern state of Israel than anywhere else in the world. It was ruled for millennia by foreign occupiers, but for over six decades God has been re-gathering Jews back to this historic heritage.
In biblical days, God specifically commanded His people, Israel, to “go up” to Jerusalem three times a year to celebrate the feasts of Passover, Pentecost and Tabernacles. Jews from all over the Mediterranean region thronged to Jerusalem to bring their sacrifices, study the Torah, and rejoice together.
Israel’s King David bought a threshing floor in Jerusalem as a future site for the House of the Lord, which King Solomon later built there. To this day, the only recorded deed for the land, know as the Temple Mount, is recorded in the Bible.
At this season, the whole world acknowledges Jesus of Nazareth, Who is the Jewish Messiah (the Christ of Israel) and our Savior! It is this “Good News” we proclaim to the world!
