Biblical understanding about Israel
Isreality is growing into a fully fledged international organisation in its own right. Participants from the Experience Israel tour 2016 are sharing their experiences with local church communities around the world.
Each week, isreality.org publishes commentaries on the weekly parasha, in collaboration with the European Coalition for Israel Young Adults. This serves as a terrific collaboration for students from all around the globe.
The weekly Torah portion (Hebrew: ַע בָּׁשַה תַׁשָרָּפ Parashat ha-Shavua, popularly just parasha) is a section of the Torah read publicly and aloud in weekly Jewish prayer services, usually in full during the Shabbat (Saturday, the Jewish Sabbath).
These three points are basically the mission of Isreality. First, we seek to deepen our personal understanding of God’s masterplan as we form Biblical world views; secondly, we seek to bring other young Christians along for the ride; and thirdly, we seek to bless Israel. That’s us!
The next step for us is to become more involved in our local churches and to act! Many young Christians in Australia are like how I was a few years ago: thirsty for deeper insight into God’s plan for the world. It doesn’t work to be a cultural Christian anymore. There’s not much benefit to being a nominal Christian. Either you’re in or you’re out. And if you’re in, just give it everything!
