Genesis sets the stage for the Bible’s story of redemption, Exodus establishes the theological framework for the story and

Tabernacle teach about the Trinity and the way sin has affected the entire universe and man’s relationship to
God? What does Israel’s Exodus from Egypt reveal about the way Messiah would rescue His people from the power of sin and the devil?
In October 2013 Pastor Shmuel Aweida of the Beit Eliyahu congregation in Haifa visited the UK to share with audiences what it was like growing up in a Jewish state, why he defines himself as an Arab Pastor rather than a Palestinian and why a fellowship of Messianic Jews called him to be their pastor.
This award-winning drama looks at the daily lives of ultra-Orthodox Jews learning, living and loving in modern-day Israel. Following the story of a family facing hardships, they must rely on their faith for miracles to happen during the holiday season.
‘For the day of the Lord is near on all the nations; as you have done, it shall be done to you. Your reward shall return upon your head.’ (Obadiah 1:15)
The Forsaken Promise, a three part documentary DVD produced by The Hatikvah Trust, makes for uncomfortable but eye-opening viewing, on a little understood period which has left a grievous stain on our nation’s history. This sequel to The Destiny of Britain (see Winter 2012 Herald) picks up where the previous documentary left off and gives a brief account of how the Balfour Declaration (the pledge that the British government made in 1917 to help establish a Jewish homeland) came to be. It goes on to demonstrate how Britain turned her back on the Jewish people and reneged on the promises she had made. If reneging on the Declaration itself wasn’t bad enough, under the British mandate the British administration in Palestine and later the British government themselves went on to do all they could to prevent the establishment of the homeland that the Declaration had intended, at times physically blocking and imprisoning Jewish folk attempting to enter Palestine. The consequences of these days were far reaching, both for the Jewish people themselves and for our nation. The film goes so far as to suggest that the end of British mandate in Palestine marked the end of the British Empire on which it was previously said ‘the sun would never go down’.
‘Just as Cyrus, the King of the ancient Persian Empire, was the Divinely appointed facilitator for the return of the Jewish people to Jerusalem after the first exile, the British Empire was entrusted by the God of History after the second exile to restore His ancient covenant people to the Land that He had promised to them as an everlasting inheritance.’
