In Jericho

Jericho, the Jericho, is one of the oldest cities in the world. Most Christians associate the city with the fall of its walls after Joshua and the people of Israel marched around it seven days. But its role in the Bible does not stop there. It it a city that was later frequented by Elijah, Elisha, King David's men and Jesus. This is the place where the tax collector, Zacchaeus, lived. It is on the road to Jericho where Jesus placed his parable of the Good Samaritan. It is also where he healed two blind men.

Rich with biblical history, Jericho today is virtually emptied of believers. But there are a few. And the hunger there is great. Once a week Ziyad Bannoura [make Ziyad's full name a hot link to his bio page on the website] leads a Bible study there. Out of a population of about 20,000, about 40 people attend. It is a small seed, but one we know will grow once again turning the people of this city to the One-and-Only-God-Who-Is, and to his only begotten Son, Jesus.

This ministry, like most throughout the Palestinian Territories, is a risky thing. Let these believers know that you support them in their faith. Click here.
