“You don't want a messianic apocalyptic cult controlling atomic bombs.” (Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu)Welcome to the Middle East, where Israel and her neighbors have been engaged in diplomatic and military conflicts for nearly 64 years, with roots in the disputes dating back over 2,000 years of history. Founded in May 1948, Israel faced annihilation from the moment the state declared independence, finding itself invaded by Arab armies hoping to put an end to it before it had barely been born. Israel has since grown into the region’s strongest military power, but it continues to face existential threats that leave its position perilous in ways more dangerous than any it has faced in more than 40 years. In fact, the world has been on edge for months over the standoff between Israel and Iran. With Iran seemingly racing toward a nuclear bomb and showing no signs of relenting, all eyes are on the two sides' covert shadow war (including assassinations and cyber warfare) and ultimately whether Israel and/or the US will use force to stop them. In Israel and Her Enemies, the authors of Decoding the Conflict Between Israel and the Palestinians recount the history of all the conflicts between Israel and her neighbors, while also getting listeners up to speed on where things stand now between Israel and nations like Iran and Syria, as well as relations between Israel and substate groups like Hamas, the Palestinian Authority, and Hezbollah. Along with analysis and anecdotes of important events and people, Israel and Her Enemies is the perfect starting point for understanding how the Middle East conflicts have gotten to where they are at today and what the future may hold. 1.

The Book of Revelation provides a blessing to those that preach its contents and to those that hear (or read) it. The world is changing rapidly. We notice drastic changes in our climate. We experience extraordinary storms. We are starting to experience earthquakes in unordinary places. Earth's people and its societies seem to be in a condition of unrest. Christians are being beheaded. Nations are against nations. Some countries want the annihilation of Israel. The Church has softened its message in attempt to bring the young people back to church. It's hard to find a pulpit that preaches fire and brimstone. The whole truth seems to be hard to find. We all need to be blessed. We all need his help. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Randall L.

Israeli storyteller Noa Baum grew up in Jerusalem in the shadow of the ancestral traumas of the holocaust and ongoing wars. Stories of the past and fear of annihilation in the wars of the ’60s, ’70s, and ’80s shaped her perceptions and identity. In America, she met a Palestinian woman who had grown up under Israeli occupation, and as they shared memories of war years in Jerusalem, an unlikely friendship blossomed.A Land Twice Promised delves into the heart of one of the world’s most enduring and complex conflicts. Baum’s deeply personal memoir recounts her journey from girlhood in post-Holocaust Israel to her adult encounter with “the other”. With honesty, compassion, and humor, she captures the drama of a nation at war and her discovery of humanity in the enemy. Winner of the 2017 Anne Izard Storytellers' Choice Award, among others, this compelling memoir demonstrates the transformative power of art and challenges each listener to take the first step toward peace. 1.

Adolf Eichmann, also known as "The Master," was put in charge of organizing the Jews and sending them away to concentration camps. On Sunday, March 19th, 1944, Eichmann was standing in what would become one of many concentration camps; from there he led a long convoy of SS members into Hungary. As Eichmann and his men rolled along the trail, Hitler ordered troops of men to invade the capital city of Hungary and seize strategic positions. Eichmann was methodic in his annihilation of the Jews. First, he would isolate them. He would mark them with yellow stars so that they could not travel or use any form of communication as well as banning them from a number of occupations including civil service. After the isolation stage, he would collect every form of wealth owned by the Jews. From bank account to businesses all the way down to their ration cards, they would have nothing to leave behind. He would then remove the Jews from their homes and march them to a holding area where they would be kept before being shipped to the concentration camps. Here is a preview of what you'll learn: Learn how Eichmann was tracked in Argentina and brought to Israel in secrecy Learn why Eichmann managed to escape for so long Learn about how the Mossad (Israeli secret service) assisted in this mission 1.

Long ago, a remnant of the children of Israel returned to Jerusalem. Through great difficulties, the temple was rebuilt. However, the complete restoration of the testimony of God also included the rebuilding of the city and its wall. From the first return of the remnant under Zerubbabel to rebuild the temple, until the time that Nehemiah rebuilt the wall and set the city in order, took about 100 years. During this period of restoring the wall, there was a great danger of all they had accomplished being destroyed. The wall and the city had to be rebuilt. Then the full restoration would be complete.In the same way, God’s call to his people today is to come out of the complexity and the perplexity of the world (Babylon) and return to the simplicity that is in Christ (Jerusalem), gathering together unto his name.What is the concern of your heart today? Is it that since you live comfortably, you do not care for the testimony of Jesus? True, it will be difficult for those who want to maintain the testimony of Jesus. There will be many afflictions and reproaches. Your brothers and sisters are already on the verge of spiritual annihilation. Do you give yourself to prayer for the Lord’s testimony? Do you plead with God on their behalf? If you do, I believe the burden of the Lord will come upon you - as with Nehemiah - to go back and rebuild the wall and city. Oh, that God’s people may be built up together for the testimony of Jesus and the glory of God! 1. Language: English. Narrator: Geoffrey Pittman.

Appealing to Monster Theory and the ancient Near Eastern motif of "Chaoskampf," Safwat Marzouk argues that the paradoxical character of the category of the monster is what prompts the portrayal of Egypt as a monster in the book of Ezekiel. While on the surface the monster seems to embody utter difference, underlying its otherness there is a disturbing sameness. Though the monster may be defeated and its body dismembered, it is never completely annihilated. Egypt is portrayed as a monster in the book of Ezekiel because Egypt represents the threat of religious assimilation. Although initially the monstrosity of Egypt is constructed because of the shared elements of identity between Egypt and Israel, the prophet flips this imagery of monster in order to embody Egypt as a monstrous Other. In a combat myth, YHWH defeats the monster and dismembers its body. Despite its near annihilation, Egypt, in Ezekiel's rhetoric, is not entirely obliterated. Rather, it is kept at bay, hovering at the periphery, questioning Israel's identity.
