Israeli archeologists have unearthed findings dating back to Babylonian conquest and destruction of the First Temple in Jerusalem.

Archeologists uncovered several artifacts from charcoal covered rooms in the City of David dating prior to the siege of Jerusalem at the hands of King Nebuchadnezzar over 2,600 years ago.

Archeologists found several jars for storage, as well as charred wood, fish bones, human bones and seeds. Amongst the artifacts found were an Egyptian ivory statue, pottery jars and rosette seal dating to a decade prior to the capture of the Temple by the Babylonians.

Behold Israel Releases New Teachings in English and Spanish

Many of you follow this blog from Guatemala, Mexico and other Spanish-speaking countries and I have good news for you!  Amir Tsarfati, founder of Behold Israel, has recently released several messages he has delivered while teaching in Mexico.  These timely messages are in English, but translated to Spanish, and they are powerful!

Here is a list of messages available from the current tour of Mexico:

Amir continues his teaching tour in Mexico until June 21, and you can find out more here.  If you are near anywhere he is teaching, I strongly encourage you to attend one or more of these opportunities to hear one of the world’s foremost experts and Bible teachers regarding Israel and God’s plan for her.  You will be greatly blessed!

Amir’s next stop is the US, where he will teach at First Euless Church (Euless TX) on June 25.  You will find information about that engagement here.

Enjoy…and have a blessed day!

Amir Tsarfati – Live Q&A on Facebook

UPDATE: If you missed Amir’s Q&A, it was recorded in two parts and here they are:

Part 1:

Part 2:

Just a quick note: it is my understanding that Amir Tsarfati will conduct a live Q&A via Facebook at 8:00am (Phoenix time)/11:00am (Eastern time) Sunday (10/23/16).  I believe this will take place on either the Behold Israel Facebook page, or the Amir Tsarfati Facebook page.

There appears to be some additional information on his Twitter feed.

If you are unfamiliar with Amir, you can find out more about him at BeholdIsrael.org.

Amir Tsarfati Shares “God’s Calendar”

Recently we celebrated Pentecost…or the Jewish festival of Shavuot.  The two are different, yet rooted the same.

Though recorded in late-2015, I don’t believe it was accidental that Amir Tsafati’s teaching, God’s Calendar, was posted once again on his blog, Behold Israel on Pentecost!  You see, if we understand the Jewish feasts, we gain an understanding of God’s calendar!

Thus, I highly recommend carving out an hour for this incredible teaching that guides us to understand the times in which we live.  And for all that’s going on in the world today, that’s an important topic!

Enjoy!
