(78) Terror and Revenge: The Real Story of an Execution and its Aftermath in Israel
48:02Two weeks ago, a Palestinian terrorist brutally murdered two brothers by shooting them, at point blank range, through the window of their car... after the car had been smashed by another vehicle. The media narrative, however, focused on the apparent retaliation by Jews in the aftermath. What's the real story, and how can we tell truth from falsehood? Pesach and Doug speak with Luke Hilton, Director of Marketing at HaYovel and one of the Israel Guys, about the real story - a story which Luke witnessed firsthand. You don't want to miss this amazing conversation about the media's version of the truth versus the reality on the ground. Plus: Pesach rants about the Biden administration's decision to break American law when it comes to funding Palestinian "pay for slay," and breaks down a fascinating and encouraging speech by Senator Tom Cotton.
(77) The Four Special Torah Portions and What They Mean
34:04Most Christians are aware of the Jewish practice of reading a portion of the Torah - the Five Books of Moses - each Shabbat. But as Pesach explains, there are 4 weeks each year when a special additional portion is read. In this episode, Pesach explains this Jewish tradition to Doug and shares his thoughts on what it all means.
(76) Asbury University: A Gen Z revival?
46:41Pesach and Doug sit down with Dr. Michael Matlock, a professor at Asbury Theological Seminary, to offer a firsthand account of the revival and spiritual breakout that has turned that college campus upside down for weeks on end. Dr. Matlock shares his experience, as well as his hopes for the students encountering God through this season at Asbury.
(75) A Rabbi, a Pastor, and a Professor Talk Theology, Eschatology, and Sociology
53:11Pesach and Doug meet up - in person! - in Toronto, where Pesach makes a big announcement you don't want to miss. Then they sit down with Dr. Michael Reardon to discuss Israel, Biblical Theology, and why all Christians should be pro Israel, regardless of their denomination. Dr. Reardon does a masterful job explaining some central concepts in Christian theology, and why they matter when it comes to fostering positive attitudes towards Israel.
(74) Haters Gonna Hate the Holy Land (and Jews): More Antisemitic Nonsense with David Lange
39:49Doug and Pesach first speak to Tali Shalem, CEO of Holy Gems, about the remarkable discovery of precious stones in northern Israel - and the miraculous way they were found, despite the assurances of scientists that they didn't exist. Then they welcome back David Lange of Israellycool.com for the latest from the wacky world of high-profile anti-Semitism. (Roger Waters gets a starring role today; even his BDS-supporting bandmate thinks he's gone over the edge.) You might get depressed, but you'll laugh on the way there.
(73) Understanding Israel's Biggest Controversy: Is Israeli Democracy at Risk?
56:09The biggest issue dominating the headlines in Israel is "Judicial Reform." Yet thet media narrative is that Netanyahu's proposed legislation will threaten Israel's democratic character, and even the most ardent supporters of Israel worldwide are largely ignorant of the issues. With the help of Rabbi Steven Pruzansky, Pesach and Doug clarify the misconceptions, explain what's at stake, and why it should matter to anyone who cares about the Jewish state.
(72) How To Pray For Israel, and More
34:43On this episode, Doug & Pesach catch up on life and news in Israel. Doug excitedly talks about how his favorite football team, the Philadelphia Eagles, are headed to the Super Bowl! Pesach gives some insights into the recent terrorist attacks in Jerusalem and elsewhere, and explains why everyone - including you - should be praying for rain in Israel.
(71) Are Christians Misreading the Bible?
44:21Pesach flies solo this week and has a wide-ranging conversation with Rev Dr. Dru Johnson of The King's College and the Center for Hebraic Thought in New York. Dr. Johnson shared his journey and passion for teaching Christians how to read the Bible the way it was intended to be read, what he calls "Hebraically." Pesach then asked Dru for his thoughts on the changing attitudes of young Christians about Israel. His answer was not what Pesach expected!
