In this video presentation, our Palestinian friend, Rev. Alex Awad, tells the remarkable and inspiring story of his mother, Huda Awad, who was left a widow with seven children in 1948, during the Zionist takeover of Palestine.
Alex gives a unique look at the Israeli/Palestine conflict as a Palestinian Christian. His presentation is based on his fascinating book, “Palestinian Memories: The Story of a Palestinian Mother and Her People.” Alex’s older brother, Bishara, founded the evangelical Christian college, Bethlehem Bible College in 1979. Alex served as the pastor at the East Jerusalem Baptist Church and Dean of Student Affairs at Bethlehem Bible College.
Sadly, most American Christians are unaware of the plight of Palestinians Christians. Near the end of his presentation, Dr. Awad delivers a fascinating comparison of the two covenants found in the Old and New Testaments of the Bible, that definitively challenges Christian Zionist theology (see comparison chart). In addition to watching Alex’s presentation, we recommend his article, “Palestinian Christians in the Shadow of Christian Zionists,” that will give Christians who believe that God gave the land of Israel in 1948 to Jews only, pause for thought, if they are not totally blinded by their theology.
