Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu revealed intelligence during a press conference Monday evening indicating that Iran’s renegade nuclear program included a “nuclear weapons development site” at Abadeh, south of the major Iranian city of Isfahan.

Archeologist Uncover Seal from Kingdom of Judea

Archeologist Eli Shukron announced on Monday that his team had unearthed a 2,600 year old seal while excavating near the Western Wall in Jerusalem’s Old City. The seal bears an inscription in Hebrew with the name of “Adenyahu Asher Al HaBayit,” meaning “Adenyahu by Appointment of the House,” which was an important title in the king’s court in the Kingdom of Judea and is mentioned in Biblical accounts of the reign of King Solomon.


Should Christians Study Rabbinic Literature?
Tuvia Pollack, Kehilah News Israel

Today many Christians, especially evangelicals, reject replacement theology and feel deep remorse for the antisemitism that the church has been guilty of. This remorse, plus the Protestant lack of ancient rituals and traditions, has caused many evangelicals to rediscover the vast richness of Judaism. The mistake that many make is that they think that the Judaism of today is equal or similar to the Judaism that was around during Jesus’ time, and they end up learning unbiblical or even anti-biblical things. In fact, a lot of the rabbinic literature probably started as opposed to Jesus’ teachings, or as a response to Christian teachings.


In-depth Analysis of the current stand-off with Iran
Yossi Kupperwasser, JCPA

If Iran eventually is forced to suspend its efforts to hit Israel, the consequences of the current confrontation may be positive for Israel. Its decisive response may encourage Tehran’s realists to attempt to convince Khamenei that the hard-liners’ policy led nowhere, and that to save the Islamist regime he has to accept a new nuclear agreement that will really deny Iran the ability to have nuclear weapons.


ICEJ Teaching – Jesus and the Calling of Israel

There are countless pastors and preachers teaching today that God has finished His work with the Jewish people, that they no longer have a special calling and the Church has in fact replaced Israel. Romans 15 is an important passage for today because it squarely refutes this claim by stating that Jesus became a servant of the circumcision (the Jewish people) to confirm all the promises given to Abraham, Isaac and Jacob. Jesus did not come to annihilate those promises but to affirm them!
