This is worth watching — and sharing with others Christians, here at home and around the world. It’s not often that you hear an Israeli Prime Minister mention the name of Jesus. Yet Netanyahu has recorded a warm Christmas greeting for “all the Christian citizens of Israel,” as well as to Christians around the world. He also invites all Christians to come visit Israel and see the places where the Bible came to live. Amen. No Israeli Prime Minister better understands the deep friendship evangelical Christians have with Israel, or that Israel has no better or more faithful and enduring friends than those who have a deep faith in Jesus Christ. So let’s continue to be praying for the Prime Minister and for all the people of Israel this Chanukah and Christmas season. Let’s continue to mobilize Christians around the world to pray for the peace of Jerusalem, as The Joshua Fund continues to do. And let the name of Jesus — Yeshua in Hebrew — be lifted up among all this Christmas season, just as it was amongst the Israeli shepherds in the field outside of Bethlehem so long ago. “In the same region there were some shepherds staying out in the fields and keeping watch over their flock by night. And an angel of the Lord suddenly stood before them, and the glory of the Lord shone around them; and they were terribly frightened. ‘Do not be afraid; for behold, I bring  you good news of great joy which will be for all the people; for today in the city of David there has been born for you a Savior, who is Messiah the Lord. This will be a sign for you: you will find a baby wrapped in cloths and lying in a manger.’ And suddenly there appeared with the angel a multitude of the heavenly host praising God and saying, ‘Glory to God in the highest, and on earth peace among men with whom He is pleased.” (Luke 2:8-14)
