Certificate In Judeo-Christian Relations Being Offered


It’s true we share a deep respect for the Sabbath. We also recognize dietary guidelines from Leviticus. However, for most Jews, this is all we may share in common.

For example, the ridicule we sometimes face for observing Sabbath is nothing compared to the brutality Jews have faced for centuries. We haven’t been accused of murdering babies to make our unleavened communion bread, nor have we been denied citizenship due to our religio-ethnic group.

Mission from the Remnant to the remnant


Our mission to Jewish people presents a unique challenge and opportunity for Seventh-day Adventists as well as for other Christians. Since the expansion of British Empire began in the 19th century, Protestant Christianity has understood its mission as going out to bring the Gospel to the different corners of the globe to the people who do not have knowledge of the Bible.

Who authored the Bible?


According to the Bible writers’ own claims, and in harmony with the traditional understanding held by ancient interpreters and most biblical scholars until the rise of historical criticism during the Enlightenment, approximately 35 individuals wrote the Bible over a period of 1,500 years.

Christmas festival of lights

Reveling in Christmas Lights

I revel in the lights of Christmas! And I am not alone in such reveling. Our wider Christian family is entranced each year by the lavish display of lights so festively decorating our homes. If I were forced to eliminate all types of Christmas decorations but one, I could forego the tree, the tinsel and Christmas balls, the snowflakes, and many other things, but I would keep the lights! Somehow, for me, the holiday lights capture the essence of Christmas.

Israel and the church


Early Christianity and its significance for Seventh-day Adventist theology


The role of Israel in the plan of salvation and in last day events presents one of the hotte st debating topics in Christianity. Throughout the two thousand year history of Chri stianity this debate has continued. This discussion is deeply rooted in t he historical events that occurred during the period of the Jewish–Roman wars between the destruction of the Temple (70 AD) and the Bar Kohba rebellion (136 AD).

Israel Yesterday, Today and Tomorrow


A Jew Meets Christianity

It was beautiful summer Sunday of 1985. My friend Victor and I, two high school students, lazily strolled through the streets of Kiev trying to kill a few hours before boarding our train home. Suddenly we heard very unusual sounds for our ears–singing coming from one of the distant corners of the square. When we came through the arch, we arrived at the doors of a Russian Orthodox cathedral.

Ruth or the Destiny of the Church


In the days when the judges ruled, there was a famine in the land. And a man from Bethlehem in Judah, together with his wife and two sons, went to live for a while in the country of Moab. The man’s name was Elimelech, and his wife’s name Naomi.

Now Elimelech, Naomi’s husband, died; and she was left with her two sons. They married Moabite women, one named Orpah and the other Ruth.

The Risk of Hope


What makes biblical hope so special as it has for 4,000 years nurtured the dreams and the faith of millions of people?

It is  not an accident that Israel has chosen the Tiqwah (hope) as a theme for her nationalIsrael was born on hope.
