Jesus, our Messiah, was born a Jew. His friends and followers were Jews. Why does that matter? Anyone who holds the Scriptures to be the Word of God will want a better understanding of the people He chose—the apple of His eye. This week on The Land and the Book, we’ll explore Jewish culture and customs—and how they reveal the person and work of Messiah Jesus. Don’t miss The Land and the Book.
We’re used to hearing about antisemitism in Europe or other places. But did you know that an antisemitic incident occurs almost every day here in America?

Plus…headlines from the Middle East—and updates to your Bible questions on The Land and the Book.
