The following is a note by the President of Bethlehem Bible College, Jack Sara, on the current troubles engulfing the West Bank and Gaza. It was published on the excellent ‘Come and See – a Christian web site from Nazareth‘.
This post is re-printed here with the personal permission of Jack, a faithful Christian, a fearless advocate of biblical truth and justice, a Palestinian, and a friend. I will never forget our conversation over breakfast a couple of years ago!!
Mission Impossible! By Jack Sara
By: Bader Mansour
For too long Christians from the West that have taken the time to visit what is romantically called “The Holy Land” have contributed to a terrible injustice.
They dream of walking where Jesus walked, but all the while, the clock ticks and the coach waits, whilst they, rather ironically, run where Jesus walked. The Sea of Galilee, Nazareth, Bethlehem, Jerusalem. They go, they rush, they take plenty of pictures, they scurry back onto the bus, and head off to the next place of biblical significance!
When will the madness end?
