CHICAGO, Oct. 13 /Christian Newswire/ -- Chosen People Ministries hosted more than 1,700 people at The Moody Church in Chicago on October 1-2 for the Inside the Middle East Crisis Conference and proudly deem the event a success in a new report. Tasked with presenting the Middle East crisis through a biblical lens, speakers including Joel C. Rosenberg and Dr. Erwin Lutzer joined together to uphold the biblical promise of the Land of Israel and to address the current challenges of the Evangelical church in the Middle East.
"The conference reaffirmed the need to reach all people with the Gospel of Jesus the Jewish Messiah, and gave all 1,700 attendees the opportunity to join with international experts in discussion of and prayer for peace between Israel and Palestine," said Mitch Glaser, president of Chosen People Ministries and author of the report.
The new report also details the conference's discussion of the following points:
- How to look at the crisis in the Middle East with a newspaper in one hand and a Bible in the other hand
- How a follower of Jesus can foster deep love and concern for Palestinians while also understanding the biblical basis of the Land of Israel belonging to the Jewish people
- The importance of showing God's love in both witness and material aid to Israelis and Palestinians, especially in the face of radical fundamentalist Islam
- How to encourage all those living in Holy Land to turn to Yeshua the Messiah for answers to the Middle East crisis
