Show Notes

In this episode Chris & Riley are joined by Dr. Sahar Qumsiyeh.  Dr. Qumsiyeh is a Palestinian American Christian who grew up in Bethlehem under Israeli occupation, attended BYU, joined the Church of Jesus Christ, studied in Turkey, and returned to Palestine, before taking a permanent position at BYU-Idaho as a math professor.  She recounts her vivid experiences living under a brutally segregationist regime and how it shaped her upbringing.  She describes her conversion and ultimate reconciliation to the Jewish people as she prayed for and received the love of Christ for her fellow children of God.  Her story gives us hope for the establishment of the true Zion and the future gathering of Israel as a global reconciliation of all God’s children.
