'The Rational Passover Haggadah' with Dennis Prager

"Welcome to this episode of the Charlie Kirk show. Super thrilled and honored to have with us today. A mentor of mine and a teacher of mine someone who I have listened to hundreds of hours of his content, his fireside chats have literally changed my life and he's the author of an exciting new book. The rational Passover hagada did I say that right, Dennis? Perfectly. And I encourage everyone coming along in your Judea. I still gotta get some of these other words right. The trust me. It's tough. But that I just want to say your rational Bible. Genesis in particular, it really is life-changing. Truly. It's meant to be. Thank you. Coming from you, that's a big deal. But as I said, that's the reason I worked so hard on this is to change lives. This one is part of the series and not part of the series. I've used the term the rational because I only use reason. But it's not about a biblical book. It's about the Passover Seder, the most ancient ritual that is still practiced in the world. We're talking about something that has taken place. For over 3000 years, it's astonishing when you think about it. In the Passover Seder, recounting the exodus from Egypt and this is the 2000 year old book that is used to this day and I explain it like I do genesis and exodus and now later in the year deuteronomy. And that's why it's for everybody like my Bible books. It's for Jews, Christians, and everybody else. And so

Germany marks low-key 30th anniversary of reunification

"Go to Germany. Now. Today marks a special anniversary for the country 30 years since the reunification of Eastern West Although the commemorations will be muted inevitably because of Corona virus, three decades as a single nation marks an important moment for Europe's biggest economy. GDP per inhabitant across Germany has risen fourfold since 1990. But the rising living standards hasn't been felt equally across East and West. East Germans, on average, still earn less than their West German counterparts and satisfaction with the political cars Indeed, with democracy as a form of government is lower in the east than it is in the West. That's according to a report by the government ombudsman for the former communist East Germany. Well, Dr Ulrich, A garage is a professor of European policy and the study of democracy. Don't know University crims in Austria and joins us Rekha. Welcome. Good morning. Good morning. How significant a day is this? Well, I think it is a very significant day for years. It's quite I mean, it's three decades on DH. I remember quite well the 25 years ceremonies, a Sze Yu said. Now the pandemic avoids that We have big celebrations, but indifference to 25 years and 30 years unification celebration. And I would say it's very important. But for the first time, there is also a sort ofthe reflection about what has been really happening. Yeah, you know, In the past celebrations we watch just celebrating and now there is a sort of deeper meditation about what did they do to the country politically, economically and so forth. That's interesting, and presumably, also, that's influenced to a degree by the fact that you've now got A lot of young adults who have never known Germany any different. Yes, there is. This sort of young generation was born after who never experienced the country divided And there's a lot of study that those don't feel The difference is that elder generation's would still sort of detect. But as I said, for the first time with these 30 years celebration it it seems to me that if you're listening to all these radio features that were obviously having in Germany today in the past weeks. So for the first time, you have a lot of critiques above the process that has been managed in 89, for instance, the toy hunt taking over the rotten industries and former JD and all these things. So there is a sort ofthe former GDR feeling that comes up sort off this heavenly being override it. Let me bring my guest him who may have some thoughts or questions to you, Rachel Shabby. What comes to mind for you? I think this is a fascinating subject and discussion. And I just wonder when you say Professor garrote when you say that there is deep in meditation about what it did to the country politically and economically. What sort of things are coming up in that conversation? For instance, just this morning when I was waking up with my German radio, and there will Ah, somebody saying who is a former media intellectual, but also sport a person. And who would say? Obviously, there was this What we call a regime so dictatorship regime? Yeah. But for the first time we tried to see it in a more saythe electrical way. Which is? Yes, it was ah dictatorship regime, But people were not all oppressed or did not in general field all oppressed. So there is this little sort of shades of gray in how you discuss that people actually could have been happy. And we do not want to be destroy biographies, you know? And you have for the first time people listening to former GDR sort ofthe personalities and and biographies, which say there was a life in Judea. It was not just dictatorship. Rachel was not the answer. You were expecting. Yeah, I wondered if it would be along those lines. Whether people would actually be able to articulate on a personal level. It wasn't all horrible, Andi. There are sort of that There are nuances to that conversation, and I wondered also, if there would be Ah, discussion about the inequalities that still persists. Germany. I'll come to you on that. In a moment we bring Bobby and then by all means, come back. The question I have is that the sense ofthe off unity that Germans now face Expedience. How much of that is influenced by the fact that for half off thes 30 years, Germany has been run by someone from the East. Someone from the GDR Angela Merkel. Not only has Germany been run by her, she's popular at home abroad, widely regarded as the great statesman off are off our time. I mean, To what degree does that help in this reunification? It's very interesting that you posed this question. And the interesting thing about Mrs Merkel is that she is a sod off. How can I say this? Let's say neutral. If you read the There is something interesting about her that she is not checked. She's not tacked East and she's not even tend women. Yeah, you have a lot of discussions, whether the fact very fact that we had for now, 16 years of German Female chancellor did something to the gender question in Germany. But the thing is that these things you do not really associate with Mrs backup. Neither the East West divide nor the gender thing because she tends to be if you read German newspapers. Often she's characterized as mut mother on, and that is interesting that the East thing doesn't take on her. It's not an obvious thing. So probably it has influence. Probably there's something beneath the surface is, but I would not come to it as an obvious sort of because she has been an East Europe, East German women that now 30 years after some of the country unification is OK. I would not make that link was not the answer. You were expecting. No, no, it was from the album. From the outside. It seems striking to me that she is from the East. But But now that I think of it, she doesn't really make a big deal of it herself. So I suppose it makes sense to pick up on the point that Rachel made about inequalities and how much they still exist on are talked about in the context of what went before. Inequalities. Rachel many thanks for the question. Yes, A lot of inequalities between East and West are still existant and on many layers of society. The thing is that the quality question is not really an East Western. You also have the prophet ear's off the benefit of unification. All the people who were basically trained and skilled and mobile by them in 89, you have those who were more say residual. And you know what? And More the countryside. He, um, so it's not only an East West divide. It's also a rule. Urban defied. If you go like say, for instance, or the recent prison is not as performance performing as likely, But life is a very good example for urban cluster that really has risen out of nothing. And you could also point to HINA, for instance, which always have this, you know, making watches and little eye tech industries and the little clusters there. But then you go to the mall rule areas in save the Arctic Sea making book for Pullman, and then you have a roomful of divide, And this is all about equality. And then one important thing is what is seldom told. But obviously we had a brain dying. We had 16 million people. Informer, Julia today there 11 Million, so five million left. But because there's no counting between East and West Germany about sort of leaving the country, it's not really in the statistics. You need to accept in a way that the brains and the mobile people left somewhere really rapidly after 89 movie

The World's Highest-Dwelling Mammal Lives Atop a Volcano

"In twenty thirteen to mountaineers were nearing the top of Vulcan Judy Jayco a twenty two thousand foot tall volcano on the border of Chile and Argentina. When they saw something unexpected, just two thousand feet below the summit climbers spotted a mouse scurrying across the snow. It's really a remarkable citing his known expected wild mammals to be living at an elevation of over twenty thousand feet. At that elevations that the scarcity of oxygen oxygen that makes it really a challenging. Place to to survive in function. But then also just the extreme cold, it's an extremely inhospitable environment J. Starts and evolutionary biologist at the University of Nebraska. The climbers reached out to starts because he studies how animals adapt to high altitudes and he was so intrigued that he decided to make his own trip to survey the area starts and his colleagues spent a month that Jews Zhigo earlier this year where they confirmed with the climber saw they found mice everywhere including on the summit officially setting a new record for the world's highest dwelling. Mammal. Start says, the summit citing was fortuitous, his climbing partner Mario Perez, Mamani saw the mouse dive under a rock just starts made it to the top exhausted and groggy from the thin air. It took starts a minute together his wits, but he eventually managed to catch the mouse with his hands starts collected that mouse and others as museum specimens that will enable future scientific analysis. They also their encounter on video. The report is in the proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences now that he's home starts wants to understand how these mice can survive in such harsh conditions, and conversely what prevents other animals from venturing. So high clearly the the device that are living these extreme altitudes. Have physiological capacities that are very different from your typical rodent. He and his colleagues are comparing the genomes of the mice from Judea Jayco to their lowland relatives to see if they can identify the animals high altitude adaptations. He's curious whether they have evolved some of the same strategies as mice that live at high elevations, in north, America in the Himalayas. Starts also wants to know how mice are finding food on top of a barren rocky volcano thousands of feet above the highest green plants. On his next trip, he plans to analyze the stomach contents of the animals, the capture. It's really an open question to whether most species are whether they're elevation limit is set by physiological tolerance or just the lack of ecological opportunity. It's probably a combination of both whenever the answer starts suspects, there may be more high altitude animals out there than scientists thought, it's just a matter of climbing high enough to find them

"Hello and thank you for joining us on the PODCAST, spiritually curious I am your host colleague. This episode is discussing the idea of being made in the image of God and I I want to discuss that idea. What does it actually mean physically spiritually and metaphorically to be made in the image of God. Since God has infinite power unlimited attributes and is unable to be fully conceived. Is that even possible for there to be a physical representation of what is beyond human understanding? And physical representations would not take more than one species to express fastness of guy. That's that's something to think about. Why do we believe man is made in the image of God in? Why are we the only possible candidates for this Guy Image? Are, they're not other. Life Forms One earth and beyond. That this prestigious title would be a better fit for. The universe, itself could be said to be made an image of God. It's mysterious power intelligence. It's vast beyond human comprehension gives birth to stars galaxies in the unknown. Does Not Nature represent the likeness of God with its abundant beauty and mysterious character, providing a space for life to happen thrive in and flourish. These sound like better. Options for the lightness of God in me. I mean I don't know. Now if you considered a possibility of all the other candidates, the other life forms in this universe that we know of and those that we do not. Know was in other universes. What allows humans in excludes excludes every other life form as being the only beans that were created in image Agai to. Create A to resemble God. Is, the image of God Limited and expressed by the physical body. You know a human brain. hands ten toes to is in arms. Is that what qualifies us to be created in the image of the Vanity? They may say that we are the most intelligent of all species on earth, because we freely choose, we have the ability to create to love to understand and expand our knowledge base. And because of these abilities, we have built sophisticated cities and achieved scientific and technological advances, but what use? Do Animals Birds Sea creatures and insects have would cities filled with sophisticated infrastructures, social media, touch, screen, technology, and advancements in human medicine. They live according to the conditions of their own environments which do not demand things we have so what makes them any less intelligent and disqualifies them as being made in the image and likeness of God themselves. Surely, there are other creatures that exist beyond earth that are more beautiful intelligence, stronger, live, longer that produce more offspring thin are more resourceful. That will be a better fit for such a prestigious title. Think so, but man has excluded all other possibilities all other options. All other life forms to hold this title of being made in the image of God and put ourselves there. It's just us. I don't believe that man was made in the image of God i. mean let me let me I. Don't believe any being is made in the image of God if you think about the phrase made in the image of God and actress self. Can an accurate image and likeness of God be made? Can what God's ears? Be confined to one idea, shaped form and replicated in one species. Or if you extended even all the species that exists. Isn't God. More vast. Than everything else can can what God is field taken in field up in in different bodies of things. Christians teach that. This image of God is only accessible as You know we become more like Christ while on Earth Eastern Philosophy teachers that we become god-like, as we become less like earthly beans, and more like the transcendent means that we are fruit sales. But. What makes God God? Is defected God is limited in all aspects of power, ability and knowledge. How can man who was limited in all? These areas be the image and likeness of them. God is independent in every aspect of the word. God depends on nothing, not even the divine power in ability that God has makes God divine. The powers and abilities are dependent on God. And become divine, only because God utilizes them. So even the power of God. The abilities of God are only. Search, because they are exercised by God and not the other way around. You know we are wholly depending on conditions outside of our control. From the day we are born until the data. We give up these human bodies. So, why do religious texts than doctrine teach? That man is to resemblance of God. Is Pretty simple, because man wrote it down and told others. Is that simple it? It started with an idea that matured into a belief. Only. Reason man is made in the image and likeness of God is because man said so. No of animals can talk. Maybe they would say they were made in image and likeness of God or or I don't know. You know the same reason that Jesus a Jewish man from Judea is portrayed as a white man is because the people that are telling the stories in creating the ideas in the iconography established the narrative. The story could have win in a number of different.

"Female leadership is still challenged today. And especially within religious communities, especially with like three Abraham mcface who come functions eons, people, we can see the legacy of a good leader who is female. And I think that it stands for me. If anybody challenges female leadership especially within those faith, so I would say you know history a taste to the opposite of what you're saying. Even seven months ago, there was a very very well-known American bibles theologian who stood up in Sade. That woman cannot lead in faith. Communities because Israel never had queen. And I think that.

She obviously did this at a risk to her own life. into her fifties, her sixties. She is protecting the Pharisees from the SAGGY sees. How does that work like? How does her husband not shut that down? Question, really surprising I guess we have one clue I mean. There's very little writing about her at all. They have one clue about what he thought about her. In the story of his death, he's waging war. You know like his whole life age forty nine, still out there fighting, and then he falls ill right before a huge battle. He's on his deathbed. And they have two sons, and they've been fighting alongside him. The time has come for him to call his family together and declare his air. but Alexandra is lying in his bed in Jerusalem and he is dying. He's army is fighting this battle Deroga- and what happens in? Is called into his bid side. You know pre supreme the praise. And sudden the you know the exhausted just lifts himself up and Joseph is actually recorded this quite nicely Alexander. Listen south up and says. Shalom me, the people love you and the people you know you give. People hope it's so incredible that even amidst everything that he's done wrong. He recognizes the loyalty of his subjects to his wife. And he says to her they love you. And he declared right hidden, and then Shannon Zee on is now sixty two years old, and he says. Is the near Queen the rule that. Now this is unprecedented. It's never ever been done in the history of Israel. But what happens is in the SOCAL. So she says, thank you an exotic paraphrasing. Thank you and John Shell. and she puts on her armor, and she goes to be with the Army Dragon Bah. And the custom of that day was if you defeat his city. The first person that walks through the city gates is declared the concrete. That's why I was always so important for the king to be present. Because when he walked through the city gate, he would be declared the victor, and so she's there because she's going to walk near the city gate. She's going to conquer the city and she's going to walk. She's going to be the victor and that's exactly. Exactly, what she does that, she becomes queen and Victor or about the same time she's the first female to the rule and there she is, and it's so exciting to see that and here she is now her name is forever engraved in the rulership of Israel, and that's amazing that she was there and that we kind of evoked for for so many years, and now the tables are turned. The champion of the Pharisees is running the show. She installs the Pharisees as the ruling religious body. Years of threats and oppression can be righted decades of. And persecution contempt, these are all bubbling to the surface as the political and ideological tide, turns. Does Edgy sees come to Shannon Zee, and now that she's Queen, and they say to her and the show something about her character. They say to her that they are afraid that the Pharisees going to retaliate against them, so this edgy say to her Shannon Zee on we need your help. So. She says I'll hide all of you. Is it I referred to earlier on the cities along that had the seal of on them. She provides for the sad. UC's so that they will be safe, and she makes it clear that no one is to retaliate against them for what happened in the past and him, so she protects the him his wall. She did the same thing for her enemies that she did for her people well. I think that to be able to hide people that you were kidding. People that you cared about speaks to. Someone's carried more than just the political background, and so that's what she does is one of the first things that she does when she becomes. She ruled for seven years. It's actually become known as Israel's Golden Age and it's so incredible because when you study Jewish all the Talmud. The rabbis ride a lot about Shannon's. So here is a passage from the hauge. It says that as a reward for her piety rain fell only on the Sabbath, so have working class suffered no loss of pay through the rain falling during their work time. Oh, single Friday night! It rained and it rained through the Sabbath, and then it stopped. Time to go back to work. And so it would seem with your spiritual, and not spiritual that there is something deeper actually happening you know. Rain is falling, and they documents that the produce of the Land Gusau so big that people couldn't hold the kidney beans. They couldn't hold that things that will growing because the land was experiencing a revival, the fertility of the soil was so great that the grains of wheat grew as large as kidney beans. Oats as large as olives and lentils is largest gold dinar. How this sages collected specimens of these grains, and preserved them to show future generations, the reward of obedience to the law, and what piety can achieve. I love that detail there preserving it, they're like. These nobody's GonNa. Believe that the answer is largest all of going to save them for future. Generations Yeah. I love to see those. Don't last thousands of years unless they're in unless they're in an Egyptian desert tomb usually. Well. You should mention how. She did make an appearance in the Dead Sea Scrolls. My need to connect everything to Egypt has worked. Look that. She made it into those scrolls. One sentence and you want to hear what they had to say about her. Yes, okay, because of the countless harlot trees of the Harlot, the winsome mistress of sorcery coup in snared nations with her. And people with her sorcery. And, that's of course YEP. Caters GonNa, hate haters, GonNa hate she she what we do know is. She didn't use her power to exact revenge. Yeah! Ah..

"What happens is you have these two groups of of religious people and which you know, because scholars won't recognize anybody that knows anything about biblical history with these two groups of people. The saggy sees, and the Pharisees basically the difference between just have two different theological viewpoints and seas were of the nobility so swollen cells is better than everybody else. Where's the Pharisees very much like the people, but they had very very strong beliefs about things so the Pharisees. Always fighting against each other, and so, what happens is in Zeon, is a pharisee herself she. Is Very very staunch on what she believes and Shalom's eons family had always been. Leaning towards the Pharisees. You remember these. Sees you remember these from Sunday School Oh. Yes, like. How were you taught about well? The sad UC's are sad. Oh, I forgot about that. Why are they sad because they don't believe in resurrection or so a Shin? Let's Christian. I had forgotten. That's how we were taught about in Sunday school. Yeah, that's how you can remember it. Right. Yeah, Sad, because Zach because they're royal in. There's no hope for them. There's no resurrection there snow. Because they're more hellenistic. They're more Helen is yeah, and the Pharisees are for a lot of Christian religions. The Pharisees have become the quintessential bad guys. They're the hypocritical. Powerful religious leaders who care more about their power, and their rightness, and their wisdom than Abou- there. That Jesus called all the best names. Oh whitened SIP occurs with dead men's bones like his best burns were for the Pharisees. So it's it's all a part of this polarized. How Hellenistic showed we be? Yeah, and it becomes so toxic such an environment of true hate and I'm sure. I forget the name of it the bias. What's it called by a symmetry? something. More. Imagery. I'm sure motive attribution `asymmetry was just rampant..

"Way that they started living. which is incredible and it's crazy, because then you know what happens is John Hurricanes? WHO's the king? The first King of this fully independent Judea? He has a he has a number of sons, but we only focus on one. He has his son name. Alexsandr, I or Alexander Janice and he named him exhausted after Alexander the great near the Great. Conqueror. Alexander Yon I is obviously her cousin, and he does become king, and she becomes his bride, so that's where it all began their. Own! It was an arranged marriage in there. And she was thirteen years older than him. She had to wait until she was twenty nine until she actually got married. which at that stage? In those times she probably have had loads of children already and be married someone else, but she had to wait until he was sixteen, and she was twenty nine, and then they got married, so she was really really trained to be somebody that was going to be formidable because her. Her husband was a lot younger than her, and so she was really trained to be someone that excelled politically, and some that excelled in knowing and understanding the laws check. She became really very smart, politically and ulcers very good with the sword, some scholars and I think in their time of waiting until you cousin was old enough to get married. She was learning and studying and. Just kind of building into who she was I think family maybe didn't realize she was actually becoming a powerhouse in her own right. She really began to exercise her own decisions and earn will and also her own convictions, which is incredibly important, so they were actually building into somebody that was going to be incredibly powerful, instead of that submissive roll..

"Everyone familiar with the Abraham tradition well know that there are very few women in the Bible the Torah and the Koran. Indeed. So my guest today, a theologian and a scholar. She went looking. Hi, everybody. My name is Laura. Jacobs and I am from Capetown, South Africa so right a lot about women's history and my focus area has been for about twelve years woman in the ancient. Near, east, in order to tell the stories of women that I largely forgotten. especially as they need to impact our faith communities, the faith communities that kind of. In the ancient, yeah, you, so that's really really a focus point for me and then I'm also social justice journalists, which is an amazing reality travel all over the world over many years for example work with Jan deciding China and then all summer radio presents a and I am actually a biblical scholar along with my husband. We teach fourteen thousand people every week about different aspects of the Bible for me. It's radio bats. You know his the historical value that is found in the pages. A lot of people forget that the Bible is not just a religious takes, but has a place in history, and so do the people and the cultures and language context. And even with all her biblical studies, she had never heard of Schilling Museum. A Lot. Of People Stations, Zion. It's a seon or we can call this. Because, that's what a lot of people called so either. One of those three is absolutely perfect. I really don't remember ever hearing about Shannon Zee on and I actually have in mazdas degree in divinity, and actually being a biblical scholar for so many years I think it was about twenty sixteen. Historical book had come out in two thousand sixteen, and in that same here. I discovered Chilin story quite by accident. I was reading a Biblical Archaeological magazine and it was an amazing professor. Professor Kenneth Atkinson and he actually was an archaeological professor, and he was really speaking about. Sharon's I on I. Try to find more work and actually got in touch with him, and we started having really great conversation about, and that was just that starting point for me. It was just a starting point of saying. Wow, there was actually female queen of Real and so that was really my hot. It was I have to give him story to the world because BAFTA. Tell people to story SOPA found and magnificent that we will discover today, and that was really reading my starting point and so professor Atkinson. Very grateful to him, He did my book as well, and he shades so much of his research with me that he had discovered, and it was just an amazing journey. So here we go back in time to ancient Judea to biblical times to the people who are the root of modern Judaism. Christianity and Islam cool. It's about one forty BC in Judea Israel. And the Middle East and it's a part of the fractured remains of Alexander the Great's old empire and I mean this is about a century and a half after Alexandra, but his kingdom and his legacy lived on in pieces. You know he's most famous for taking Greek. Hellenistic Culture and spreading all over the Middle East. A lot of people give him credit for saving hellenistic culture because he spread it everywhere in his kingdom was Norma's. It spread from Greece all the way to India I have a Jewish dad and Christian months, so it was really need for me because I got kind of two and is Dan has the world? Always felt drawn toward tiny visible of Hanukkah, but it really is a visible with a very deep historical meaning more than than just being the visible that I kind of thought it was you had this real reality. Happen was about one, sixty, eight, one, sixty seven. Will be, and we have the Helen's. They culture is taking over and forbidding the Jewish people that were there to do just normal practices. They've been doing all the time. which kind of made their identity? You know things today it's the same today like the Chabad at the sabbath or circumcision, keeping their face, the voles, doing all those things, and and the rule is agree that time forbid the Jewish people to do that. And this resulted in a lot of people dying. You know a lot of Jewish people that were saying well, we organic continue these practices, and so then we get you know persecuted and martyred and killed, and there's Hick stories about women is one woman in particular, had these seven sons, and she watches each one get burned in. This intense hot. Oil One by one. This woman loses all seven suns, and then goes to death itself. Of. It was quite an takes time. It turned into a culture war. What does it mean to be Jewish? What does it mean to be a part of the Hellenistic World? What are the rules? Who are the good guys? Some people saw their identity as part of the larger Hellenistic World and they wore their Jewish identity loosely. But others became staunch. Orthodox, most notably the Hasmonean Dynasty. This is the Jewish family. Judah maccabee. Hannukah. Over generations these Maccabi, as the Hasmonean they liberate Judeo from the Greeks, so she is Maccabi she is part of this family called. The has and family, and so she's born into legacy really of people who liberated the nation. They saw it as you know. The the hegemony family were held up as this ultimate. People who had destroyed all forms of invasion of what they saw as of their religion and of their culture, and they believed that if the Hennessy culture had one then Judaism practice, and the Jewish people as a nation would have literally been lost, and that was really what they believe, so the fact that the Maccabi has Murnian Dynasty. Really upholds. Judaism and fought for the people at that stage was absolutely incredible to them, so it has became this sort of symbol of hope and light. The imagine what it must feel like. I often think of it to be part of this family. Who just rejoin tiny nation I? Guess it's how a lot of people feel about Nelson Mandela here in South Africa. There for team as the father of the nation and just liberating, he's on people, liberating nation and I think it's not the same, but I think in in some way must feel that. The part of his spatial family, and that you have spatial legs legacy, but we're does my legacy fit in because she was a woman, but the irony of it. Is that her family. They actually become very. Helen is so they actually? The very culture that they forty gains was the very culture that began to influence the.

Matt Dillahunty & Shane Isgrig Discuss the Separation of Church and State During COVID-19

"Something specific. You wanted to get to or if you just felt like diving in. What actually on the topic of church state separation. I have to say that recently since this pandemics begun. We've we've been seeing more of it than we have before you know when I see states like this one that we're in Exempting churches from stay at home orders. That that's something that I've a huge especially when people start making the argument the most frustrating when I've heard and I've seen it all over. Facebook is oh how can we can go to Walmart or we can't go to church. I have a very simple answer for that. Walmart has essential things like groceries. Church is not essential. That's why it's close but here in in Texas you actually are allowed to meet up at a church. There actually plenty of states doing this. And some of them are being somewhat responsible about it where they're still putting social distancing measures in place or some of them are meeting up in parking lots in doing something with like negga phones. I don't have such a big issue with the outside meet ups with megaphones where people are part but people are still meeting in buildings and it just really goes to show it like. I've been reminded more than ever why I'm such an anti-fascist I'm seeing. There's a city in Israel and I think it's pronounced a Ni- I could be mispronouncing it but there's a city that has a sixty percent. I think it is Ultra-orthodox population a refused to stop meeting for group prayers. And they're putting their entire city at risk and it's actually reached the point where that city has been closed off the rest of Israel because they they just can't do anything they can't get them to stop meeting. And of course the people being told they can't meet our. This gives them their confirmation bias about them being persecuted and in Israel the Jews who are having their synagogues out there being. You know they're calling the police doing that. Nazis and then you see the Christians in this country. They feel like they're being persecuted when they're told they can't meet up at a church and you know it's it's really disturbing to see but I also see a lot of Christians who were being a little bit more responsible and they're doing some livestream scenario doing some church be zoom or something to be effective. What we're doing here and I have to say if you're a Christian listening and you're doing something like that and your social distancing while you're doing your services props to you. This is something we agree on. Let's work together. You need to tell your fellow Christians. They are putting other Christians and of course endanger when they're meeting churches and then they're going out to the grocery store and things like that you know. I hope that the responsible Christians They surely do exist. Need to call out their fellow Christian brothers and sisters who aren't being so responsible has the reality is this. They're not gonNA listen to us. Were atheists but they might listen to you. So we're calling on you to help us out and I'm GonNa slight disagreement you know you. You didn't have that much of a issue with the megaphone. Let's fill a big parking lot and have everybody stands. Succeed away I kind of think that's the granted that's better than the alternative of having the meeting church but I kind of think it's just absolute bullshit in the first place because they still left home and interacted in an area with other people are they. Are they probably some of them? Probably going go to Perkins afterwards or or whatever they're after eating places if it's happened the open and you know we like. I heard Austin's mayor yesterday extend because this was supposed to last through the eighth but he's extended This data for non essentials to May thirtieth and AC is going to be having an election. This much was which means we're GONNA if we're going to do it. Like in a gathering than may thirtieth is the only time we can do it. So we're looking at other options to to boat remotely or have it like a zoom meeting type thing. I just if God is everywhere and God can hear your prayers. Then you can stay at home and do a zoom meeting with your village. Christians did not have to get in the car and go out and contributed to traffic and fuel costs and everything else to go. Stand in a parking lot with somebody yelling at yours megaphone. You would hear more. It's actually kind of funny for me right. Because I'm working on a video about Jesus feeding the masses and the notion that there's a couple of different versions of that and in one of the versions there are five thousand there to be fed and by and by this. It's very clear that it's five thousand men plus their family and one of the points I'm getting at is I've done Big venue theaters. You know thirty. Five hundred plus people I had the advantage of having microphones and sound equipment. And everything else the notion that in First Century in Judea That there's somebody walking around with a crowd of five thousand You know speaking from a hilltop so that it dissipates out which is the worst thing you would wanna be like in a cave. Where you get the excess. There's a reason why we out. You know the theaters the way we do But it just struck me as funny that you know you've got all this and you have at your disposal. The modern Internet the best way possible to interact with a wide number of people and yet still. You just decide well. We'll kind of halfway ignore the stay at home. Order will fill up a parking lot. Have everybody stand six feet apart. You know I it it is. It seems strikes me personally as just four show like like Jesus talks about Don't pray in public. Do your prayer in your prayer closet. This is the exact opposite of

C. Penney's has been fighting for their life forever Sears been fighting for their life out Neiman Marcus been fighting for their life out do you know J. crew is fighting for their life unlike J. grow yeah I did not know that now it said it seems like anything that's in that category where like it's one thing if you're healthy business you're going through this you're still fighting for your life but when you're an unhealthy business that's hanging on you know maybe by a string at the beginning of this I don't know how you survive it yeah so they were thinking about the spinning off made well which is it I think a really good store but they were spinning off made well to go ahead and pay down a chunk of its debt but now nobody is there in the market for a brick and mortar store so probably not gonna happen Fitch also has been downgraded in their credit rating G.

C. party city tailored brands the owner of men's warehouse Jos a bank also looks like they may be not coming back some of the other is bankrupting file laying blah blah blah payless shoes Gymboree American apparel and RadioShack RadioShack is still in business other survivors band I mean they are they are they are they must've really they must have regained their many people is to make fun of him like why do you need my zip code for my for buying batteries it's like they were clearly something I don't know somehow that zip into business another thirty years I I have a feeling they have pictures of all of the fed chairs I didn't buy it buy batteries back when they were like fourteen they gave him their zip code they got now they have dirty pictures of every one of the members of the fad or something I'm not sure the top economists for Donald Trump says that it looks like we're going to re open the economy in the next four to eight weeks the present would like to reopen the economy as soon as you can we're planning internally he said I'm hoping as we're praying that we are only a few weeks away from re opening we shall see hopefully that is true FAO chi who if anybody thinks that Donald Trump is being conned by this guy or you know is that you know the the all these medical guys they've just taken over the White House just remember fat head found G. that's what this guy would be called fat head out you can and Donald Trump would be sought talking about this fat head who couldn't see over the podium because he was so short if he disagreed with them so stop it without G. anyway he says he thinks schools are going to be able to re open in the fall oh my god don't please they don't open up oh my gosh this is suicidal news this is suicide it is one of the interesting things about the whole shutting down the economy thing is they're kind of looking back and really analyzing these numbers now is it like for example they they did it they had an interesting stat on Ohio Ohio decided to close their restaurants and bars on March fifteenth okay and then to analyzing the traffic patterns of what was going on before March fifteenth March fifth through the fifteenth and the track foot traffic is down dramatically every single day leading up to when they actually closed bars and so it rent it makes it's an interesting thought experiment to think about this and that like full before they were being banned we're not going to these bars and restaurants they were they were much less crowded they were losing up to five more more than half of the business it depends did you hear about the the mayor in Illinois that closed down the town said got to close down everybody's got to stay and I'm gonna start finding people he goes home his wife's not home he finds are at a bar she said she's at the bar in a crowd of people the wife of the governor mayor the wife of the wife of the mayor he's like Hey you have any idea what it's like to live in this fashion is a creative but what what they're finding in data all around the world is that people we're not going out before the bands and we saw this we run into this already like the NBA canceled their season not because the government told them to cancel it because they felt they thought it was the right thing to do and so which is this is typical by the way that the private sector leads the government not the other way around we saw this with going back to you know racism and all sorts of things in history some of the worst problems that you know they'll be like oh well they so we should be right and if it makes sense right it makes sense right so if you have kept the economy open right we keep saying we shut down the economy as if the alternate was everything ran as it was normally yeah normally but it clearly wasn't that's not the other option the other option was I mean it you know in Ohio a fifty percent cut in foot traffic and in public areas for they did vans so like I people were already governing shooting about these things anyway if you kept the economy open I don't know that you would have had you know wonderful gains especially if the death got out of control even more I think what the government should have done is said look we're gonna click we're going to close down all of the government stuff we we think that this is bad and it is it gets worse we're going to close down schools were gonna advise the states that the things they need to do or closed down the schools than close down this and whatever the government agencies are that they could close ends and lead by example I know I kept looking remember I kept saying what is the tripwire how are they making these decisions because I'm a business owner I want to make these decisions to but I don't know what they're basing any of these decisions on so if you would be much more transparent like in the fall if this comes back just tell us what the the tripwires are look if we start to see a hundred cases you know over here in this pocket that pocket that'd mean they should probably shut down their businesses and and and keep their distance I think that's the way this should happen is we should all know what the trip wires are instead they were only via it they were only advising Congress and the president and the governors and leaving us out on it did you see anyone say well here's how they're making these decisions if they see this this and this they will probably close if they see this this and this they will probably open we're still left in the dark what are the what are the trip wires to open this thing back up yeah it's interesting how are we going to do the Indian via imperial.

Graham Brown: How To Influence, Engage, And Create Change Through Storytelling

"In my leadership in the exponential era book one of the storytelling techniques. That I teach in workshops and I share it in the book is the three box. Transformation story inspired somewhat by Charles Dickinson Christmas cow. But I want to go into that just now because Christmas is already passed but just know that there are three boxes and this is how you can tell a story. A good example is when I came to Singapore and I moved to Singapore from Japan two years ago. I could have told people what I was doing there. People ask me. What are you doing here? Graham why are you in Singapore? I'm Ron and tell them what my job ause. I told him what I was going to build you see. I told them that. I came to Singapore to build podcast studio and a podcast business and that Saturday after I moved to Singapore. I put the call out linked in and said I'm going to build a podcast. Judea if you WANNA come along and help me build this and up the acoustic tiles and put in the wiring. Setup the microphones Akon pay with anything apart from kindness memories. Good Times a beer. And a whole bunch of people turned up owning youtube people in Singapore at the time but twelve people turned up to help me build the studio. And that's the point. That's the power of story if I said to somebody when they asked me. What are you doing unless said Yeah I do podcasts. It's a missed opportunity. Robin tell people what you do. Tell them what you're going to build. When you tell stories about you business you can break it down like that. Break it down to three boxes past present future. Let's have a look at those. It's very simple. If you want to tell people about you'll business why you hear what you're selling. Break it down into the three boxes. And if you WANNA go deeper into this cycle the exponential leadership book which is free by the way you can go and get a xl dot org. But I give a plug at the end of this podcast anyway. So you don't forget it for now past present future past. Where have you come from? What is the mindset that brought you here and what is the mindset? Also that holds people back present. What is the shape of the business that you all today and future? What is the shape of the business that you want to become now? You may think this may work for for example. The startup she does is a fantastic sales tool for start of but also works with multi billion dollar enterprises a great example of this. I've seen Tony Fernandez. Who is the CEO of Airasia when he talks about the future of the quote Unquote Airline? He doesn't talk about in the context of we're an allied. He uses the equivalent of the three bucks technique which is passed all is the mindset. That's holding his back. Well the mindset. That's holding AirAsia. Back is we're in allied. We sow tickets. We sell seats and yet if they want to grow they can't go on with that mindset they have to change it they have to even sell competitive tickets. They have to sell whole bunch of other different services ancillary services everything from music to food president. What's the shape of the business that we all today was the structure in which we need to innovate well? We're an ally but yet we have this ecosystem of partners we have venture fund that's funding these policies future. What's the shape of the business that we want to become? We doesn't talk about becoming a better airline. He talks about becoming a digital to travel platform. So maybe you hear Tony Fernandez Talk. He tells the story of Airasia. Tudo which is the journey from being an Anna sold tickets to a digital travel platform. Because you know the problem is this is that the future doesn't belong to the airline that flies the most plane but the travel company that solves the most problems unless what it's about storytelling is about sharing the journey of you and your business why you hear and what you're trying to get to and you can use storytelling everywhere. You can use it when you sell when you post on social media. Notice the difference between just telling people is what we do or just telling people were doing this now or telling people we just on this the difference from that to telling story about it you'll engagements on social media will increase significantly unlike. Weiss this podcast. I've shared stories with. I could just have told you that. Storytelling is a powerful tool and here are three things that you need to know. But then it's not about that like Maya Angelou. The author once wrote people. Soon forget what you told them but over?

P, B, in J

"Are you. What do you think about this episode title Pb In j not your best work okay. Well you're pretty excited about it. Well I was especially the end of the last episode when I said it. Okay tell me the truth. Though like much time I spend coming up with this stuff pretty. Who's your ghost rider? Who's like I'm not giving it away? I want all the credit for this. Pb AND J. We're talking about Paul Barnabus in Jerusalem. That's what it is even be followed it but if you're going to be more accurate you'd have to say they're in. Cyprus Antioch Okay. And it's not a perfect guy. Pb In see like producer. Ryan is rolling your eyes so hard the whole room. I'd spend eating avocado toast today. Let's see what do we think we know breakfast options over here? Just just a couple of cool producers in the booth shaking their heads they were playing some height music to get US started. You didn't hear it. It was just in our headphones right. There was a small error in pulling up the file. We didn't get the clean version of everything we listen we are. We're glad that we're glad that you're here. And we're talking about axe. We're still in the box back in back in We're talking about acts and we're talking specifically through acts because it connects with where minimum bobble is at the village. Yep Yep and so In the fall on knowing faith we covered the first really twelve. Thirteen is chapters. It was twelve kyle. Twelve chapters of the book of acts. And now we're jumping into chapter thirteen and going forward and we encounter Barnabus and Paul. Yeah and we start meeting them which are falling them along their journey specifically focusing on gentle mission. And it's really exciting. Because we start getting we start getting a picture of what this of. I don't know the axes always kind of painting. A picture of people got in transition. I like Israel coming to an awareness. Jews coming to an awareness of like. Wow God is doing something. Among the gentiles we saw Peter Nucleus. But really at this point I feel like it starts to really put the focus there. Yeah it's been ratcheting. It open the whole the whole time so you start with this very small. You know thing that's happening in Jerusalem and basically the words of Jesus in in acts one eight of it's going to go from Jerusalem to Judea Samaria to the ends of the Earth is what the book of acts then proceeds to paint a picture of four us so in the first twelve chapters. That was what we saw. We saw this continual sort of concentric circle expanding out. And now we're GONNA see the the message. Essentially handed in terms of the way the Texas written from Peter to Paul. And we'll start to go with Paul on his missionary journeys and Barnabus is one of his companions. That's even Contextual is significant because for centuries the center of the faith in your was Jerusalem right and the fact that Antioch is now going to become one of the centerpieces of the book of acts is showing. How different this faith is from what they thought it was going to be longer have to go to. Jerusalem to worship because we are the temple of God and the woman at the well. We're starting to see the fulfillment of a literal sense like not in like A. I mean that you were going to be all over this as a church planter this church planting like all of a sudden you have a healthy thriving church in. Antioch it says there's profits. They're teaching their worshipping their fasting fasting and praying. And you're seeing that healthy church doesn't need to be in Jerusalem. Healthy Churches should be planted to the ends of the Earth Amiss. It come on church. Shot man every church planter like you guys just have these lines ready

Anthony Scaramucci on The Deal Of The Century

"Hi It's Johnny of justice out of the Four Seasons Hotel Ten Trinity Square Very Upmarket Hotel in private cloud wet tonight. Members were treated to a talk in a very intimate setting given by former White House. Communications director in the trump administration. Anthony Anthony SCARAMUCCI. Now he wasn't in the job for very long was he. He said something in confidence to what he thought was a friend. And that friend doped it in and all trump sacked him. Kim says he regretted working for trump. But I'm not so sure. He's made the very best out of it and he's become pretty well known all over the world but now I feel he SCARAMUCCI Mucci two point not after the public humiliation of his dismissal. In the world wide media glare it affected every part of his life including his marriage trump capitalized on that on twitter. But he's since reconciled with his other half now he's going out to campaign for Mike Bloomberg mini Mike as he calls him and we've heard that he's being true to his political instincts as a democrat. He wants to underpin the principles and institutions of the American constitution which she says are paper thin enough to his talk. I got a chance to talk to him. One on one about the deal of the century a bid for new settlement in Israel title with the Palestinians the issue with the Palestinians he says. Is that oftens in this discourse. They don't have adequate political advocacy Kazeem. People don't care about them because they not an economic engine. Israel is an economic engine so if the PA's failed leadership doesn't come to the table able and Israel pushes for the annexation as he calls it of all territories which they regard as that which they feel they need against the people who called a won't negotiate he says is a route to hopelessness and self destruction in SCARAMUCCI is book. They need to come to the table. Take the fifty billion dollars in stock the negotiation man. He drew powered else with the American founding. Fathers Protecting the tyranny of the individual the most sacred minority in the system against the Overriding majority well. That's not a fulsome parallel. But I understand his point. SCARAMUCCI is a Roman Catholic not Jewish. But he's a self declared Zionist. He's even happy to call it Judea and Samaria not the West Bank. Have a listen to Anthony SCARAMUCCI. Thank you very much ronsard. That's a Jewish. I am Jewish as honest like Y. Ou explain why but here. It's it doesn't matter whether you and I this if you WANNA protect Israel and you want to provide for peace and security for Israel. They need an advocate at the table Palestinian. It's almost like a prime minister. Should say okay okay. You're the designated advocate for the Palestinians. Not handling it themselves. You have to go in there and try to convince these people to do things certain SORTA way they can get the rights of the need and the sovereignty. They need the self-fulfilment it. They just keep on the Palestinians on being used internationally as vehicle sandwiches such a credit but they don't have a willing leadership then not in the business. Yeah no exactly so. This deal is about a divorce. Peace Not War. Do you agree with her. Yeah but but I I think that we have to be more than think water with the bigger for it to be more transformation. Of course they're being used. You gotTA understand. The Israelis have an advocate the United States they have members of the West that are provided vitamin advocacy. If you don't create balance or some level of symmetry remember von Metternich. Said about peace in peace when you need balance in peace you need. A structured forces were allies of committed to suppressing the Internet. And if you're that on balance you're going to create a period of hopelessness that will be. They have hopelessness already. Understand that you started a next Xingdong territories. Okay Listen We gave slack mckim from. I don't call it the West Bank. I call it today in Somalia area. I'm from that camp understand that but I'm telling you you want to figure out a way to cohabitate with wanted the Jarrett's the plan is close. Actually John's plan but it needs to be slightly better for them. And then you can have the peace with the security right now. Israel's through the very strong stable nation very secure wi jeopardizes security by that and I. I've been destroyed. I've seen the MINORA that's made out of a case of Hamas Ian's but I'm telling you you've gotta come up with something. There equalised slightly equalize awesome.

What sets Trump's Mideast peace plan apart from previous proposals?

"The trump brings out this peace plan yesterday is this plan is effectively very simple basically get knowledges realities on the ground that's what this from Middle East peace plan is that what you're hearing from the media today is that trump has changed the game in the Middle East that from his abandon prospects for peace when what to wear is about this is the prospects for peace have stopped all wounds the reason they have stock always in the Middle East is because you have one side that would like to white the other side off of the map now a lot of prospects for peace over there in order to understand the Middle East conflict what you have to understand is one very simple truth Israel has accepted every piece offer that has ever been put in front of it and every single piece offer has been rejected by the Palestinians and the Arab world generally back in nineteen seventeen when the ball for declaration was first promulgated that said there would be Jewish national home in Palestine meeting now will be Jordan as well as Israel when that was first put out there the Jews immediately accepted the herbs turned it down and when people talk about this vast territory for the Jews get let let's be real about this there's some fifty eight Arab and Muslim countries on planet earth Arab or Muslim countries on planet earth all the Arab countries are all Muslim country there is one Jewish state I'm plant earth it is tiny Israel is something like fifteen thousand square miles is extraordinarily small Israel is half the size of New Jersey in a region that is extraordinarily large so the idea of a Jewish national home there not only is not any sort of giant cram down on the on the Arab population it is eight eight eight tiny percentage of the total land mass in the area and of course Jews have never stop living there there is a historic Jewish tie to the land of Israel but the reason I'm going back in history is you need to understand why it is the pieces never happen there and then because of the Jews okay so the Jews were originally told by the British Mandate by the British they're going to get Jordan as well as Israel okay then sliced off Jordan then they slice off half of Israel are they sliced away most of today and Samaria they sliced away half of Jerusalem it's like the way the Gaza Strip and then did you accepted that you like okay the U. N. says that Israel can be a state jurors will be an open international city right under the tutelage of the west right will not be in fact owned by the Jews are owned by the Arabs will be under the tutelage of the United Nations whatever is real touch that deal except it right granted an indefensible rum state in the borders in nineteen forty seven Israel accepted and the Arabs rejected has been termed by people living in Israel be out of its borders because they're completely indefensible completely understand how small Israel is you have to understand the borders before nineteen sixty seven included an area of Israel that is nine miles wide okay the distance from our office to the Santa Monica beach and that is the distance and and without traffic okay for without traffic you can travel the with of Israel with a bit of the state of Israel you can travel that without traffic in four in forty seven forty at worst you can travel that in under fifteen minutes and that is the worst in the entire country in that particular area if you've never been is really don't understand the geography you don't actually understand what's going on and understand how closely everything is packed together okay so Israel accepts that and the Arabs rejected and they declare war the Saudis the Jordanians the Egyptians the Syrians they all declare war on this new state the British were very much afraid of taking off the air is because they didn't want to drive the Arabs in the arms of the chair of the Soviet Union they refuse to allow Jews to emigrate to British Mandate Palestine so during the world during World War two as the Holocaust is happening the British mandated preventing Jews from moving in specifically because they don't want to take off the Arabs in the area the Jews largely go along with that Ben Gurion largely goes along with that in the interest of venture we getting state the state is finally granted by the United Nations and once that happens the user like okay fine I guess we'll just accept it okay if I like okay good at least we have a place to go at least now there is a Jewish national home and everything now okay this is when all of Japan's Maria Andrews wasn't international control and the Gaza Strip all of that is delegated to the Arabs who had pre sixty seven borders and say no and they want you in an isolation attack on the state of Israel and Israel fights back in the early stages of that of that war Arabs are urged by the Arab leadership to flee the area specifically because they're supposed to get out of the way of the onrushing Arab armies are gonna come in and crush the Jews and so they they're so hundred thousand Palestinian Arabs for living in the in the British Mandate Palestine in the Jewish area of what will be the the Israeli state of Palestine the the Israeli area Palestine hundred thousand arms fully he then as the war progresses it turns out that a lot of the Arab villages are actually if columns operating on behalf of the Arab armies which is exactly what you would expect because this is an ethnic conflict Hey the the Arabs are using these as bases of attack against the Jews they're cutting off supply lines supply rolled and the and the Israelis put in place some called operation dollar which says we are not going to lock down our tiny army in guarding these villages that are effectively in many cases a fifth column instead we're going to tell people that they need to leave these villages and move over to the Arab side okay now remember when the state of Israel was declared the state of Israel declaration of independence urges the Arab citizens to stay to stay here be part of the part of the work that we are doing be part of the state Ben Gurion didn't understand why the Arabs are fleeing using you can live here what's the problem she's lived as minority in Arab countries for thousands of years why exactly should there not be one Jewish state where Arabs are a minority and the assumption on the part of the Israeli leadership is that as all the Jews flowed into Israel from the other Arab countries and from Europe that that would become minority population more minority population their population okay sell people flee and then the Israeli army in the second wave is fighting these battles in in the middle of war there's always population term well people always leave to get out of the way I'm on rushing battles and the Israeli army can't afford to be locked down pin down transitive van insurgent campaigns in certain villages into the clear the population out okay so after the war ends there now something like for it anywhere from four hundred to seven hundred thousand Palestinian refugees at the same exact time nearly the same number of Jews are expelled from Arab countries around the region of ever talk about this right like the reason that there's so many Moroccan Jews who live in Israel the reason there's so many Iranian Jews living in Israel the reason there's so many Syrian Jews living in Israel is because at the time of the Israeli sounding seven hundred thousand Jews were expelled from the surrounding Arab countries and Israel took all of them in all of them it'll take all of them and with no international help he normally the U. N. helped fund the placement of refugees in new places no help at all Israel takes all of them in the Arab states instead of absorbing these populations into the general population decides that they're going to keep these populations refugees so the first movie is we are not going to actually allow them to return to the state of Israel when I can allow them to move back to division because that would be acknowledging that we lost the war and that they would have to then be Israeli citizens then very quickly within about a year the Arab leadership says you know great if we could infiltrate the state of Israel with a bunch of people who are on our side one of his state of Israel destroyed at that point the Israelis like well guess what we are not letting people in back into the state when they fled their homes were not letting them back in just to stand in favor of the destruction of the state is not never in human history has been the obligation of a of a state that was declared war on by its surrounding population to take in large numbers of members of people who are trying to destroy the state from within that has never been anything okay in in the aftermath of everywhere they're refugees the idea of resettlement of the refugees back in their original homes has never really been a thing either in fact is in the aftermath of World War two there were huge population transfers all over Europe they're in the aftermath of the of the declaration of the division of Pakistan and India there were tens of millions of people who are refugees and they were taken in by their countries and they did is that Indians live in India and Muslims live in Pakistan and the specific area where there is no separation cashmere has been a hot spot ever since but there's never been any call for less sixty years for all of the Indians were expelled from Pakistan and left Pakistan to have their original homes back in Pakistan right is never been negotiation point the Palestinians then are used as a tool by the Arab world to club Israel into submission and their use as an excuse to claim that Israel ought to be is right this is the so called right of return it's a great book on this at recommended yesterday called the war for turn by a couple of the leftist Israelis one was a former labor MK member of Knesset and one of them is journalist hearts okay so I'm just explaining history because it you're not going to stand from fees plan until you understand okay so there's never been anything internationally that says the Jews cannot live in Judean Samaria it's a ridiculous suggestion the notion that it is somehow a violation of international law for the Jews who won a defensive war in nineteen forty to settle in the areas they want is upset it's absurd okay in nineteen sixty four the Arabs still have yes merry on Gaza Egypt is in the Gaza Strip but has not an exit specifically because it does not actually want the Palestinian population absorbed into the Egyptian population density area have not been annexed by Jordan right they've not been technically annexed by Jordan for the exact same reason but Jordan is ruling intraday and Samaria Hey this is a so the notion that Israel was always ruling all of these errors all is just not historically true the Palestine Liberation Organization which is Yasser Arafat's organization now the Palestinian authority which rules the Palestinian areas in the west bank an area act the Palestinian authority effectively is founded in nineteen sixty four now you might notice something on the time line here nineteen sixty four is before nineteen sixty seven in nineteen sixty four the Arabs are talking about the liberation of Palestine at that point Jerusalem is split the Jordanians are in control of the old city of Jerusalem they've banned all Jews mentoring the old city of Jerusalem they discriminate against Christians in the old city of Jerusalem they build barbed wire fences around Jerusalem Hey they already control Judea and Samaria Egypt controls the Gaza Strip and yet there's something called the Palestine Liberation Organization weird what exactly are they seeking to liberate make very clear in their charter what exactly they're seeking to liberate every square inch of territory between the Jordan River in the Mediterranean Sea in other words the murder of every Jew in that region and the ethnic cleansing of Jews from that region a second Holocaust get a made this clear since nineteen sixty four in the nineteen sixty seven war happens and all the Arab countries under the leadership of NASA in Egypt decide to mobilize against the Israelis they decide they're going to want to second war every time shin against the Israelis and the Israelis get wind of this and the Israelis

A Blanket Full of Bacon

"This is Shirley. I'm joined by my co host. Jim Wilkin JT English. I wish we should just give you everything off the it was just a repository Eh. One day we will put that on. Today's episode we are an ax to look at a blanket. Full of Bacon in acts chapter. Ten hope you enjoyed the discussion hey. Jt why did did you immediately come in here and make fun of my Mug. There's this problem like we have these huge coffee mugs in here right now and I can't fit my coffee Mug in my ears. Looks like it in your mind ends Jenas but it's big like that's like a gallon or so over there we had a microphone in there. The microphone with your your Coffee Mug. It's a to hold it with both hands. Yes driving a small bucket. uh-huh drive and your yeah. This is interesting Well we are back. And today we're talking about acts chapter ten and a blanket full of Bacon And so just figuring out what's happening in acts chapter ten and well you know what. Let me tell you something. You're you're never going to indict me for not having an interesting episode title. Just I'm like I'm free from that. Ah Chan what would you call this episode pigs in a blanket. That happened off air. We were very proud of that. We brought it back on here. You know we we're GONNA leave people without pigs in a blanket so then I had a weird moment after that hit me when we actually my daughter I want to give her credit. She's the one who was like Mama teaching pigs in a blanket. And then I took everything in me to resist googling to see if there was actual a tie between the tidal title pigs in a blanket and this chapter really like I thought maybe the International House of pancakes red x ten and then named it back. Wow Oh oh wait. Wait wait so so you thought that it was possible that the idea because of the head coach for a viable. Wow you're so. Yeah Bible rival literary you're like the beautiful mind person maybe where you're just like though subject to further discussion. Well today. We're talking about about pigs in a blanket or a blanket full of Bacon. We're an act SHEPPERTON. Let's just do a quick recap so far jen. How did we tax ten? I mean wh where have we been at before we got here. Well Kyle. It's been a long haul. No actually it's been really good we've gone through So the first half of is focusing mainly on the the emergence of the Ministry of Peter Within the narrative and So the first half of the book wraps up at the around the end of chapter twelve. And so. When you're in chapter ten you would know? Then we're really getting disordered. The the main point of what's happening in Peter's Ministry and interestingly right before you get to chapter ten ten you see the conversion of Saul so the Texas has spent a lot of time talking about Sol And we actually did on an earlier podcast and so you can kind of get get the sense that oh well I guess. Now we're gonNA talk about Saul Slash Paul and Saul Slash. Paul is commonly thought of as The one who takes the Gospel to the gentlemen tiles and said it's a little bit of a surprising. Turn when we flash back to Peter and find that actually. This is a story about Peter Taking the Gospel to the Gentile Anti. And he's GonNa he definitely gets kicked their right. It's not like he's not looking for the opportunity right. He wasn't. He wasn't out vision-casting for the Gospel. Going forward right Paul right with the Lord Kinda seized him into it right. Hold them into it. And that's the story Enact Shepperton focusing on Peter Cornelius and so I and also what's brought us to this point is like this expansion. This sort of ratcheting out of the Vision for who the Gospel is going to go to. And so I it comes to the Jew and then you start seeing you know like. Oh there's the Ethiopian Eunuch you know it's like each each vignette that's in here of WHO Receives The Gospel. Is this this this picture of the Gospel going as Jesus said in acts one eight from Jerusalem to Judea to Samaria and so this week is the ends of the earth and so and this is a fascinating story right right Oh man it's fantastic. I mean it's just it's really interesting just from like a history of redemption perspective. It's really interesting from a Kosh the spirit moving and Peter Peter and Cornelius perspective. It's interesting from what our visions and dreams perspective. It's interesting from a just like the pictures that are are interesting. They agers so it's just a fascinating story so we're not going to be able to read the whole story of petering to Cornelius. Because it's it's long it would take we're trusting when we cover these chapters. You're maybe reading along with us or you're familiar with the story. So the broad kind of contour here just to give us like a big arc of acts chapter. Tim Is that Pete. There's this guy named Cornelius Milius And Cornelius is a centurion of what was known as the Italian cohort and it says that he was a devout man who feared God with all his household he gave generously to the people and he prayed continually to God and that he is going to have a vision and that vision is going to be the Lord speaking to him And that around the same time Peter seems to be having having a vision and that is a vision that involves pigs in blankets. Hallelujah yes and so oh I think one of the questions that we immediately ask ourselves here is. What's the big deal between gentiles and Jews like? Why is this even talking point of significance at all like y casual reader of the Bible? And you get to this story. Why did Peter have to be kicked so to speak into bringing the good news to Cornelius? He is why wasn't that. Just a factor like hey I mean Jesus has come. This is good news. Why not bring it to everybody? Yeah I mean I think one of the main themes that we're going to see probably throughout this. This episode is the significance of promise that God made to Abraham in Genesis chapter. Twelve verse three Specifically that that That Abraham or Abram Room at the time was this man who was going to be elected for the purpose of his family than blessing the nations events he subsequently in Genesis. Fifteen and. Seventeen this this Promise promise of the good news. Of God's favor and blessing being given to Abraham and going through Abraham there is a sign given to this covenant specifically the sign of circumcision which is now the Jewish people. It's the Israelites and but over. The course of time I think they began to to forget that the purpose of their election of the Gospel the good news being given to them was actually not just for them but elections for the purpose of others of blessing the nations corporately and they begin developing a spiritual superiority based based upon this sign of circumcision. And it could not see how God would bless or or make somebody clean. who was in their mind unclean unless they they had been circumcised so really when you come to the New Testament one of the primary questions that is being asked like their their theological conversation is around this question? Do you have to be Jewish right in order to be a Christian. We're GONNA see this later in acts chapter fifteen at the Jerusalem Council. But that's really what's happening. Luke is doing. He's giving us a theological narrative errative to show us that the primary question that that that that God is trying to show his church is that by intentions. The whole time has been to bless everybody to bus the gentiles. Not just Jews but gentiles through the Jews yeah Because obviously the Messiah comes through Abraham's family right well and one of the reasons that we wouldn't read through this on the on the podcast Is because it repeats itself. So God's right and and and one of the things that we have to ask then is like the R- the repetition is like we get all the details over. I mean the the number of times that Simon the tanner who lives by the sea is mentioned. In these in these retailing's you're like stop and and it's repeated three times. The story is repeated three times. And they're actually a number of threes in the story Or multiples of three. That are are trying to tell us something They're we're going to be three men who accompany that. Go to get Peter. They're going to be six men that come with Peter Back to Cornelius House because they are bearing witness. It's the idea of on on the on the testimony. The money of two or three is the truth is something established. So that's all going on. The story is given to US three times. It itself is bearing witness and what we have to ask is why so much over and over again the same thing and it's because I think we we're looking back on something in and most of us are gentiles. We don't have a Jewish heritage and and we have to recall That this level of repetition and this much care taken around communicating this particular message about clean versus unclean about is is Christianity Eh Something that is placed within Judaism and grows out from it like. Do you have to observe Jewish custom that to the original audience. This is mind mind-blowing at the point that it is being given to them like it is like that cannot possibly be and yet it's in here three times because his. Jt said it it's the fulfillment is a fulfillment fulfillment passage for the promise. To Abraham that through him. All the families of the Earth would be blessed and I think it is easy for us to to to be dismissive of some of the tensions between the Jewish people. And somebody like Cornelius. Like it's not like the Israelite people were had no the reason to have a little bit of certainly hesitancy but if not if not just hesitancy but outright resistance to the idea idea of gentiles being heirs of the promises why because they had a history of being enslaved exiled and oppress by these groups of people right. That's right so like Cornelius when we kind of turn to the question of who is Cornelius with Cornelius. Is He's a leader. He's a soldier of an oppressing army occupying hang army exactly. So it's like the idea of Peter Going to Cornelius. And saying there's good news for you. Cornelius would be to bring the good news of Christ the Lord and this better kingdom to an oppressive enemy. That's exactly right and so it can feel a little bit like if you're reading this you're like well why the hesitation well not only were. There are strict tradit religious traditions that separated from cleanliness perspective Jews from gentiles engine towels from the inner presence of the Lord or the holiest places around the presence of Galway But there were also very big cultural and political realities that that kept division alive among Jews and gentiles so cornelius is a centurion It was What was known as the Italian cohort but he has described arrived as a devout man? Feared God with all his household gave generously to the people and pray continually to God. Now I wanted to pause here And just ask a little bit so coriolis just describe somebody who fears God and yet. He hasn't heard the good news of the Gospel. What's going on here right? Is this like the is this the sometimes. I read this passage. I feel like this is where people would go when they're like well you know there's somebody out there who maybe has never heard about the name of Jesus but it is like but does fear the Lord right so who. What does this mean? Why is this significant? I think this is a classic example of why we can't take the book of access prescriptive given everything that it's saying because what we're seeing as you're right at the hinge point right you're right at that place in between The way that we see faith demonstrated rated and credited his righteousness in the Old Testament and the way that we're going to see Belief in credit credited as faith and salvation in the New Testament I meant and Cornelius is right at the center of it. He's going to help us. Answer the question of how to salvation come by grace through faith alone has always been the answer but we would speak of like those is who are listed in Hebrews eleven as having looked forward to the promise of salvation and then New Testament believers is having looked back. He's right at Ground Zero and and so I think that what we see here. Well so just strictly in terms of what the text wants to communicate. He is a Jewish pro slight right so he is he. He is probably on the verge of conversion to Judaism so he's he's probably attending synagogue but he's not circumcised He someone who in the past would have been like if you think. Think about Rahab. She converts to Judaism or or or ruth is brought into the community. He's not yet in the community but it's interesting that he is already demonstrating. He has works to accompany his faith. So so I think what we're seeing here is a simple obedience to a forward-looking looking faith that is only forward looking in so far as no one has come to preach the Gospel to him yet. There there is a completeness to Gospel but he hasn't heard it yes. I actually don't think this is my hot. Take that when Peter Shares the Gospel with him. I'm not sure that that's the moment of salvation for him because we already see the Lord appearing to him and saying prayers MOMS have ascended as a memorial before God But I do think what we're seeing is. The connection of the idea of what is what has been salvation. An and now what is celebration. Yeah and we do see throughout acts. I don't know that we we've hit another one of these yet. But we do see these moments where there's essentially a group of Characters Jersey have a part of the story and that one of the apostles you gotta bring it to bring the other part of the story right so you see this with typically The receiving of the Holy Spirit or the baptism of the Holy Spirit. where it's like? You have a part of the story people like. Yeah I've been baptized by John. The baptist. Well there's there's more you know that like the the Christ price came that he died that he rose again and that he has sent the spirit right and so there are these kinds of points. I think it's important. You said that about Cornelius that there are so many scenes and acts where we need to fight. Maybe the the temptation to go okay. This is how salvation works As supposed to go okay. This is a very specific. Overlap moment in the history of redemption and this is one kind of cut away scene right of that very unique back once in a history redemption. Kind of moment. Yeah right that's right. Also just find a lot of comfort in the fact. That God was wasn't his providential ential over all of it in other words. This doesn't work if God isn't clearly. Directing writers clearly directing directing the men who were with them like God is moving moving all of these tectonic continental plates and there's there's just movement in redemptive history happening we get. We get this great confidence or assurance in this narrative narrative God ultimately is the one doing. Yes Yep that's good guy gets his people he doesn't have to be more anxious about God's mission than he is and Edberg. Yeah you're right Let's go. I needed to hear that today.

Yeshiva Student Found Stabbed to Death in West Bank

"Join from Israel by Dr Michael Oren former master of Israel the United States former deputy minister for diplomacy good morning doctor and how are you I'm great you thanks I am sorry to have to say a lot of Americans do not know the new Disraeli student was stabbed to death on the west bank in a terror attack this week because we're so focused on our own violence that this one has rocked Israel I believe the prime minister has said on yesterday that Israeli sovereignty will be guaranteed in all parts of the west bank am I right about that and that could to do he did say that yes said nineteen year old the select was brutally murdered outside his school yes like a five minute drive from Jerusalem that tough on the west bank is in Samaria and and tempers are running very high in this very understandably understand in it and it's one of those a long string of murders and then in a long held philosophy through will ideology design this movement is that the best response to Palestinian murders of Jews is by reasserting the Israeli and Jewish presence in the land of Israel and building better actually conquering death with wife so with that in mind and given the trauma the United States has been through and that the situation in Israel is this impacting the election season in Israel which I think is a month away from voting now maybe a five weeks or six weeks away from voting what's the impact of that event on those elections definitely it will tend to shift the Israeli electric light work that happens all ways although in this case it this is terrible tragedies occurring many weeks before the elections and it's too difficult to do early to tell what they'll have an impact in mid September quite a way away yeah now in terms of how it's shaping up I've seen a lot of consolidation of parties a lot of different and I'm I'm looking to you to be my election analysts that we were six weeks out from November of next year all I would be doing twenty four seven election is Israeli media doing election twenty four seven it is it is but there's a tremendous amount of electoral safely he in Israel you because this is the only time in our history had back to back elections and is a strong Israel that there will not be a higher order turnout traditionally had one of the highest will turn out of any democracy in the world sometimes twice as high as the American electoral turnout but this time is a deep fear that this fatigue will will somehow discourage people from going out to vote and that the main beneficiaries of that he will be on one hand the ultra orthodox parties on the other the Arab parties both those two buildings hello folks on block they both act as I'm not in the way that the computers welcome to both and so they stand to gain the most from voter fatigue now even with the Iranian threat looming and that I know you can't comment on this but there are reports that the Israeli up thirty five struck in Iraq on on Iranian missiles being moved through Iraq to Hezbollah even with the Iranian threat growing people have fatigue I mean I just can't imagine in in existentialism and stand at home from the polls well be right threat remains largely abstract as opposed to say a nineteen year old student getting stabbed to death in Judea and Samaria but the media threat is Hamas and it's interesting that the main opposition party the rector of blue and white party under many guns which is more of a centrist party then it's a now was the court party come out and play but the next round the clock Israel if blue and white were in government they would immediately go into Gaza destroyed on that and rebuild a different type of god so that party was trying to write the record on issues relating to Gaza Hamas and back out thirty billion dollars from Iraq I believe the glowing white is to the right of Netanyahu's government well they believe he be right on a specific issue like Gaza because now has the problem that Jack consecutively over the years how much has fired thousands of rock in fact matter is that Israel under Nixon now has not gone into dot has not Dr I talked to you once in a tank on the border of Gaza I don't remember that I interviewed you you're in a tank do you think Israel ought to go back into Gaza I think it was going about it only very specific terms one of the circumstances one full agreement when you're not through the United States agreement with the Sunni Arab world the Gulf countries I was going to be the day after because Israel goes into Gaza we're going to need ammunition we're gonna keep with I cold diplomatic and legal on your bill registration to cast vetoes the security court of justice but the most important thing America coordinate with regional Arab powers about what's going to happen the day after the Israel of course and Hamas out of Gaza along with that operation J.

Coming up trade dispute aside, when it comes to the biggest emerging Tech Trends, we're does the US stand against China from digital payments to facial recognition tech where the race has settled as of late and how cyber safe is this race.

It is delayed until September from previously announced launch date of June at the journals Delyth tech conference in Hong Kong last week, Vincent Pang. It senior vice president said the move follows Samsung's decision to delay the late April launch of its galaxy fold after the device reviewers discovered problems with its foldable screen while way continues to remain in testing mode with Mr. Pang adding that the company is moving to release the device, quote as early as we can and quote.

Google denies wrongdoing. The complaints come amid mounting concerns over the business practices of Google and other tech giants, the Wall Street Journal recently reported that the Justice department is gearing up for a new anti-trust probe into the search company.

Checking in on some of the biggest global Tech Trends while concepts like facial recognition check and digital finance continued to face much pushback in the US, some of the world's biggest tech companies are telling a slightly different story. Fresh off the stage at WSJ's de live conference in Hong Kong. The CEO of online travel company, booking Glenn Fogel, says China in particular, is using facial recognition to increase efficiency noting. The country is a head of the US in digital payments, and fischel recognition, nobody Lee, you is thinking all Ali pay, or we chat with that, but people live on that in China. And one of the biggest things are some of the technology differences. So, for example, things being really, picked up fast in, in China in general facial recognition in China, where they're using it to make it more efficient to get through an airport or any type of security thing. And this became more efficient, d she spans beyond China. And as we creep into the world. Of digital regulation. New such tech is beginning to cause headaches for companies who have customers worldwide different parts of the world, different legal jurisdictions that are coming up with different rules, Judea GDP are in Europe. You got this California law and all sorts of different things coming up in the questions. Sometimes I conflict in the makes it really hard for a global player, especially when you have customers who are going all these different jurisdictions, which one applies. How do you do it? How do you match that up? That's costly. It'd be lovely if there was sort of one Google regulation privacy, we've got a little follow that, and where do you store, the data incredibly complex issues. We got a lot of people working on it again, from my point of view of the CEO. I just make sure that it'd be understands all of our employees understands. How important it is to make sure we do. What is right? Which is maintaining the privacy for our customers because he had don't do that. You lose that trust. And you lose that trust you lose the consumer that's on. We don't want to have happened leads us to the very important question of cybersecurity at WSJ's recent CFO network annual meeting in wash. Washington. We learn how CFO's grapple to figure out how much cyber security spending is enough. Judith Pinto, managing director at promontory financial has more on where the business of cybersecurity goes from here encryption is going to need to change an understanding sort of the impacts with what you have is really critical, the risk, we have with a lot of these technologies that are very powerful.

"Last fall in Washington. There was a very contentious Senate hearing over appointing a new Justice to the supreme court at one point in the hearing one of the senators on the committee lost his temper lost his cool and melted down in rage shaking his finger at the senators from the opposing party, he shouted that. They were acting disgracefully and conducting a sham process, and then he turned to the man being examined the man who was nominated to the supreme court and said to him. You're looking for a fair process. Will you came to the wrong town at the wrong time? He was speaking, of course, about Washington in two thousand eighteen but ironically, we could say something similar about the wise men in our biblical story from Matthew they came to the wrong town at the wrong time. Here's what happened in the story many years ago, some Wiseman living in the eastern lands of the ancient world saw an amazing sight in the heavens the rising new star. Or maybe it was a comet blazing brightly across the dark curtain of the firmament. And they knew that the rising of this brilliant light was assigned from the heavens, a signal that something momentous something world changing had happened. Although we sometimes sing at Christmas time as if these wise men were kings, we three kings of orient are actually, they weren't kings. At all they were almost surely philosophers and astrologers something they may have been Zorro Astrium priests. But whoever they were these wise men were shrewd observers of the night sky, those who look for signs of decisive events and clues to the future in the heavens. So Matthew tells us that just as Jesus was born they saw this new star rising in the western sky over Judea the land of the Jews using all their powers of analysis and interpretation they determined that. This star was a sign that a new king had been born the Jews had been given a new king and the lights of heaven proclaimed, it a what they did not know yet was that this new king who had been born in Judea. Was not only the king of the Jews, but the king of kings and Lord of lords the savior of all and his name was Jesus. These wise men wanted to see this new thing that had happened and they desired to show their honor for the new king. So they set out for Judea to the west in the direction of the star that they had seen in our imaginations, we see them riding along mounted on camels. But the bible does not say how they traveled it says only where they traveled to Judea and when they got to their destination. They went immediately to the city of Jerusalem to the palace of Herod. Now, Matthew has already told us in this story that Jesus was born in Bethlehem not Jerusalem. But the wise men went to Jerusalem looking for the new king if they were looking for the real king. Well, as the Senator said you come to the wrong town at the wrong time. Why did they go to Jerusalem? When Jesus was born in Bethlehem. I think we can hear some wisdom about that question from a poor Christian man living in Celinda NAMI a small village in Nicaragua. Every week the priest in his village Ernest. Oh cardinal would read a passage from the bible to the people in his congregation all of them poor peasants. And then they would discuss this passage saying what they heard and what they thought when father cardinal read this story of the wise men from the east who went to Jerusalem, looking for the new king of the Jews Aidan one of these impoverished Christian said, it seems to me that when those wise men arrived, they knew that the messiah had been. Born and they thought Herod knew about it. And that the messiah was going to be a member of his family if he was a king. It was natural that they should go to look for him in Harrods palace. But in that palace. There was nothing but corruption and evil and the messiah couldn't be born there. He had to be born among the people pour in a stable what this humble Christian was saying was that the wise men simply assumed that a king would be born in power and glory born in the Royal palace. But if the wise men thought they could find the savior of the world inherits house in Jerusalem, they were in the wrong town. They had also come at the wrong time Herod, the great who was the Roman appointed king of the Jews was growing old and in his aging he had become a mentally unstable tyrant who ruled through fear and cruelty. He was so insecure about his standing that every whiff of palace in. Intrigue and potential opposition threw him into a murderous rage. He even killed one of his wives several of his children and other members of his own family fearing that they were plotting to betray him. When Caesar Augustus heard what Herod had done to his own family. He is reported to have said about Herod. I'd rather be his pig than his son. So if the wise men have come to an aging insane and ruthless Hera the king of the Jews asking about where they can find the new king of the Jews. Well, they've come to the wrong town at the wrong time, it would be like going to the Kremlin today and asking Vladimir Putin. Where's the new leader of Russia? We've come to pay him on edge. Sure enough. Matthew tells us that the wise men when they told Hera that they were looking for the new king of the Jews rattled king Herod so badly that he shook like a leaf in the wind and the whole city of Jerusalem trembled with him. There is a church I know about that has an annual Christmas pageant now, this is not a simple event, like many other churches have with the children wearing bathrobes and coat hanger. Wire angel's wings, the play the parts in the Christmas story. No, this churches pageant is a major production held on the front lawn of the church, and featuring leaders from all around the community as the main characters Joseph, and Mary shepherds, and angels and wise men one year, the men who were playing the roles of the wise men decided that they could best show that they were mysterious visitors from the east by arriving in swirling, clouds of incense. So from a nearby Greek Orthodox church they borrowed a thorough. That's a metal container in which incense is burned on the night of the pageant. They were in the basement of their church waiting for the cue to make their appearance. On the lawn. Just before it was time for them to be on. They lift the incense and the thorough clouds of smoking incense fill the air. And then they headed out across the lawn to the manger what they did not know was that they had accidents set off the churches fire alarm system and the fire department had been electrically signal that the church was on fire as the wise men slowly walked to the manger. Suddenly firetrucks arrived sirens blaring soon firemen and yellow slickers were unrolling hoses. Among the startled shepherds and angels. But when the fire chief spotted the wise men surrounded in the fragrant smoke of incense, he realized what had happened. It a voice loud enough to be heard by everyone. He bellowed. You wise, men are setting off alarms all over town. Well, Matthew would agree. Matthew would say yes, that's exactly what happened the arrival of the wise men from the east asking about a new king of the Jews set off alarms all over the town of Jerusalem. Because if there's a new king of the Jews, then that means the old king is finished. Now, sometimes people will say that politics has no place in the pulpit that preachers should stick to matters of faith and leave politics alone. But the way Matthew tells the story he lets us know that this attitude is not right. The gospel of Jesus Christ is deeply political and politics is thoroughly entwined into the story of the wise men. Yes. No, one wants a preacher to peddle his or her party politics from the pulpit, but we cannot avoid the truth that the gospel of Jesus Christ has profound political implications. Herod was a politician in you that that's why he shook all over with fear. When the wise men told him that a star had risen in the sky to announce the birth of this new king, Jesus that tyrant knew that the birth of the true king Jesus meant the end of his own abusive and illegitimate reign of terror Herod did everything he could to stay in power. Matthew tells us that he even ordered the massacre of all children younger than two years old in and around Bethlehem. Him. So he could rid himself of this newborn king. And of course, later in the story, they tried to stop Jesus again by nailing him to across. But when Jesus Christ is at work in the world, the powers of cruelty and oppression cannot stop him. When Easter hope is alive. It's the tyrants and the powerbrokers and those who ignore human need for their own gain who should Trimble as the old him says, oh where are kings an empire is now bowl that went and came. But Lord, die churches praying yet a thousand years the same. Eventually the wise men figured out that if they were looking for the new king of the Jews inherited city, they were in the wrong town and finally they made it to the right town with the help of some scribes and biblical scholars. They learned that the scripture promised that Israel's messiah was to be born in Bethlehem, and they also had the help of that blazing star which led them to the very place where the child Jesus was the wise men were able to pay homage to the true king and to give him their gifts of gold frankencense and Moore. The story makes me wonder if we to do not go at first to the wrong places and at the wrong times defined Jesus Christ. Herod represents everything in human beings and human history that is haughty cruel violent and vindictive. The messiah was not born in his palace. Where is Jesus Christ truly to be found? Jesus himself says that the truly blessed ones or the poor in spirit, the mournful the meek the merciful, the pure in heart and the peacemakers, and it is among these little ones where Jesus is truly to be found. Whenever the church of Jesus Christ believes the messiah can be found in the White House or the governor's mansion is looking in the wrong town at the wrong time whenever the church of Jesus Christ believes the messiah can be found in places of wealth or in schemes to gain prosperity. It's looking in the wrong town at the wrong time whenever the church of Jesus Christ proclaims that some political powerbroker who ignores the cries of the poor. And turns a deaf ear to the pleas of the hungry the orphan and the alien is chosen by God. It's looking for the messiah in the wrong town at the wrong time. Jesus told us where he would be among the hungry the thirsty among the stranger and the immigrant among those who lack clothing or medical care among those in prison. He said in so far as you care for the least of these you care for me. Whenever we ignore these least ones and instead seek out the successful in the powerful. We're looking for the messiah in the wrong town and at the wrong time. Some years ago, a reporter from the BBC interviewed one of America's prosperity preachers, a preacher who preached a false gospel of power, and wealth and worldly success and who had a large following the reporter asked you preach a message of success and prosperity. Don't you? The preacher replied, yes. I do. I think Jesus helps us sale not fail. But the reporter was sharp and she knew her bible, and so she asked but didn't Jesus die on a cross as one who has rejected and condemned as a criminal how does that fit in with the gospel of success? Oh, said the preacher like all. Great men. Jesus had his setbacks. But on Easter he put all that behind him. No on Easter Jesus did not put the cross behind him as if it were some unfortunate misstep in the otherwise successful journey of a powerful. Messiah the resurrection on Easter validates the gift of love and redemption that Jesus gave in his death on Good Friday when he joined himself with all who suffer and who are oppressed that prosperity preacher was looking for Jesus inherits palace. Not in Bethlehem. And he was looking in the wrong town at the wrong time. So let us go with the wise men to Bethlehem. Let us go with our gifts of gold frankencense murder, devotion, commitment, passion, all that we have. And all that. We are. Let us go and truly worship him. He wasn't born to people of power and he wasn't born in the king's palace. But one day. The whole world will bow down in worship before this. Newborn king the king of mercy. The king of grace and the king of love. Let us pray. Oh, God take us to those places where we can truly encounter your son. Do not let us be dazzled by the powers and idols and false promises of this world. But lead us instead to the Bethlehem's of life where you're saving presence can be found. And you're loving power is truly at work to redeem us all in the name of the newborn king Jesus Christ. We pray. I'm.

"We first meet Paul holding the cloaks in the tunics of those who remove their outer garments rather than risk getting them dirty or the blood of Stephen on them while they stone him to death for preaching crisis. The messiah the next time we encounter him. He is on the road to Damascus now, Damascus is where Syria Syria, so it is outside of Judea. Which means the the list of Jewish leaders who could just decide I'm going to go visit Antioch skinhead head over. And see what see what the Syrians are up to you know, it's a it's the Sabbath and I've got my day off. And I'm just gonna go check out, you know, serious. Nice this time of year. No, they couldn't just get up and go guys now Paul can. Saul is he's known this time. He can do it. When probably I would. I would imagine. If you study history the list of those within the San Hedren, the the highest that you wish high council at the time who could just pick up and leave the province of Judaea without a Roman permission slip. Let alone guard is a real low list. Your previous argument says the opposite. They they wanted them contain peaceful. Yeah. Stop messing around. So who says God is in pragmatic manny's like as got his password. I know he's thirsty. He's got his passport. It's easier to forget a flip. Somebody flip the guy that can go everywhere. That's half the battle, right? There you go. All right. So so Paul is is on his way in order to address a surgeon Christian, and this is actually Syria is where Jesus followers I referred to in the scriptures. Christians there in a place called Antioch. Right. So he's on his way there to deal with the Christian problem. Meaning he's going to deal with some hair. Six that's what he's gonna do. And it is on this road to Damascus where this rarity of human being at this point in time in history, a man who can freely walk with respect and regard and esteem into any synagogue throughout God's covenant people the Jews, but can also walk into almost any place freely that he can safely get to in the first century within the pagan Roman gentile empire. He's on a real short list of people who can walk in both of those worlds, and that's why God chose him. I believe and so he is the one that is writing this letter to the Colossians, and when you read Paul's epistles, again, his letters it will often begin with a couple of things in this letter does as well begins with salutations, greetings, he mentions those that he has met in in the travels to these places in the past that he planted churches through and he did not plant franchises. Paul wasn't one church in many locations. No, no, Paul found guys like paths and said you're the pastor the church here in colossi Timothy year. The pastor of the church here in episode. He planted churches, put men in charge of churches. He wasn't a brand. He wasn't a franchise. He wasn't many churches in one of one church in many locations. No, he planted churches. You had an apostolic calling which was apostolic meaning to find train rise up and call in place other leaders within the church. That's what he did. That's the Christian model KFC. That's my side tangent. You wanna get me going? Get me going on the whole one church in many locations. Thank because may. That. That's on the list that the Steve day hymnal book. I'm not a fan of that at all just as long as there's a McDonald's in the atrium. I think. Leave it to the millennial defined an accommodation where they are serving real white chicken meat now if for their mcnuggets, which all those years when we were buying those nuggets, and we did it old school. They weren't if they're telling us now there are so it's real checking chicken that wasn't what we read before. Todd the sand. Right. Okay. So Paul plants these leaders, but every time, you know, he's, but he is the apostle which is, you know, if we're gonna put it in a modern term, he's kind of like the regional manager our Bishop in.
