Jewish Radio and the Christadelphians

In 2017 a large group of young people of the Christadelphian faith toured Israel.
A few months later, fascinated by the fact that a group of non-Jewish young people would chose to spend their time and money visiting Israel, we were invited to a conversation on Jewish Radio in Melbourne.
The host, Maurice Klein, describes Shabbat Shalom as a “
show that presents information to do with the Jewish community and Jewish world, with a centrality of Israel alone with some music, good humour with no PC or woke, just always wearing my heart on my sleeve.”
Joining Maurice in Feb 2018 was Sarah Perry, Jacquie Casey, now Clothier and myself.

Hard Questions – Real Answers

In an age when the very existence of God is doubted, it is no surprise that the reliability of the Bible, which claims to be His word, is questioned. For Bible believers there is ample evidence to support its claims; even so, it contains statements and incidents that can be difficult to understand.
This book asks a series of challenging questions about life, faith and practical Christian living, and offers some Bible-based answers. Throughout the book the authors endeavour to provide “simple, yet credible solutions so that faith might be supported and thinking realigned to the divine mind”.

David a witness to the peoples – James Andrews

James Andrews lives in Coventry the United Kingdom – a city about 180 kms North West of London, near Birmingham. James is a member of the Kenilworth Christadelphian church or ecclesia, a town just outside Coventry.
James recently wrote a 3 – part article in the Christadelphian Magazine about David entitled – David a witness to the peoples. It catalogues the vast extent to which David’s life was bound up with not only his own people but by those from the neighbouring nations. The definitive reference to the “tabernacle of David” by James in Acts 15 at the Jerusalem conference suggests that this involvement with people outside of Israel is key to our understanding of Gods plan.
