Blessed Lord’s Day to you, friends! I hope you are enjoying our series, Back to Beit Lehem, as we follow the story of two women, one a Jew and one an Arab, in their journey to reconciliation between their people.
Today, we move on to episode 5. If you are just dropping in, you will find previous episodes here:

- Episode 4: Balm and Tears
Today, our friends go up to Mt Nebo, the mount upon which God showed Moses the Promised Land. I have been there, and it is a moving place as you imagine what it must have been like for Moses to gaze upon the land God was about to deliver to the Jewish people.
Yet, as we know, the Jewish people were not faithful to their God, and the idols of neighboring lands (such as today’s Jordan) infiltrated Hebrew culture. Ties between Jews and Arabs is complicated. This episode is powerful! May you be encouraged by it!
