Rev. Kees van Velzen – The Amalekites

27 October 2023

In Exodus 17:8-16, we read that the Amalekites attack the Israelites after they have been liberated from Egypt and set out from the Desert of Sin. The Amalekites turn out to be an enemy for the Israelites for generations to come. Rev. Kees van Velzen discusses whether we can compare that situation with the current war between Israel and Hamas, following the 7 October massacre in Israel by Hamas.
