For the last few years I have known that the “shift” was coming, and now it has arrived! I want to be sure our community gets the message first, before the general public. This new video is my first attempt at communicating how we are preparing for the shift that has arrived both in the U.S. and abroad!
It was 15 years ago when I first heard about Eliezer Ben-Yehuda, the man who took on the task of bringing spoken Hebrew back to Israel after a 2,000-year period of hibernation. Now, to hear the full story through the living legacy of his grandson, Rabbi Eliezer Ben-Yehuda, is simply amazing. CBN has done a fantastic job in this documentary! Continue Reading…
I have been waiting for quite some time to begin this brand-new BFA International series that, to be honest, has been the most difficult one to launch. Not because of the complexity of the content or the production process, but because of something much more elusive.
For the past decade I have been quite captivated by the Hebrew Gospel of Matthew and have had the rare opportunity to witness, up close and personal, my co-author Nehemia Gordon announce the discovery of more and more Hebrew Matthew manuscripts. At last count, I think he had gathered close to 30 texts from libraries all over the world. I have been honored to have spent time in the basement of the Israel National Library with Nehemia on numerous occasions looking at Hebrew manuscripts of Matthew and we have occupied countless hours discussing variant readings.

Pray for the peace of Jerusalem:
“May those who love you be at peace.” –Psalms 122:6
Within an hour of arriving in Jerusalem I was stopped by armed Israeli security asking for my ID. The next morning I went for a walk and this time when armed soldiers saw me they crossed the street to interrogate me. After answering their questions, I asked why all the curiosity. They explained that I was 300 yards away from where a terrorist attack had just happened—right in the area I was walking from! One of the soldiers suggested that I go and stay in my hotel room. After following his advice for a few minutes, I ventured out again and promptly had my third encounter in 24 hours with armed security. This time it was dark and I engaged them before they could ask me anything. Continue Reading…
SUNDAY OCTOBER 18th 5:45-7:00 p.m. Jerusalem time (10:45 a.m. eastern USA) Yehudah Glick is hosting “Survival and Celebration” at the Menachem Begin Heritage Center in Jerusalem, marking one year since he survived an assassination attempt at the same location. Pastor Keith Johnson, a close friend of Glick and the Temple Mount Heritage Foundation, will host the live stream of the event in English, which will feature interviews and footage of the event. For those who missed the live event, here is the edited version we created just for you. ENJOY!

As world leaders gather at the United Nations in New York City during this important biblical seventh month, I have found a 6-year-old that has a short but compelling message they NEED to hear. In fact, this message may be for you too!
Six “world powers” have made a deal with Iran, and Israeli leaders are not pleased. Prime Minister Netanyahu is calling the new nuclear deal “a stunning historic mistake” and Education Minister Naftali Bennett is saying: “Today a terrorist nuclear superpower is born, and it will go down as one of the darkest days in world history.” Is the Iran agreement a deal with the devil or is the devil in the details? Or maybe it is not a deal at all. Only time will tell. In the meantime, here is a short 3-minute video that gives some basic facts about this nuclear “deal” for you to consider.
