The Land of Israel in Biblical Perspective

The Israeli-Palestinian conflict is tangled up in questions about what the Bible has to say about the people of Israel and the land of Israel. This three-week series, taught by Candler OT professor Ryan Bonfiglio, offers biblical perspectives on this complex topic. We’ll discuss the history of the land of Israel and who has lived there, the nature and purpose of God’s promise of land to the ancient Israelites, and what the OT has to say about how Israel is to treat foreigners who live among them. Emphasis will be placed on how you can enter conversations about the present conflict with more nuance, understanding, and compassion.

Spiritual Gifts are special abilities used for spiritual purposes. Of God’s design and grace, these gifts are bestowed upon us by the Holy Spirit according to God’s purpose for our lives. We each have talents that enable us to train in different fields. However, it is in the utilization of our spiritual gifts that we fulfill God’s purpose for us–in the church, in the community, and in the world. Identifying your spiritual gifts provides insight as to what you can do to achieve the most fulfillment in service.
