The Bible's Jewish Roots (with Victor Styrsky) - Part 2

Here in the United States, we have created an “Americanized” version of the Bible. While most of this is unintentional, we have lost the Jewish roots of our Christian faith. For instance, did you know that every book in the Bible is written by Jews? It’s true! Today, Dave sits down with his good friend Victor Styrsky to tell us how we can educate people about the framework of the Bible.

The Teacher and the Preacher is a weekly radio program–hosted by Dave McGarrah, Senior Pastor at Deer Flat Church in Caldwell, Idaho, and Harold Berman of Efrat, Israel–that airs each Sunday at 10:30 am and 7:30 pm here on 94.1 The Voice KBXL and also on Sunday evenings at 5 pm on our sister station 790 KSPD. They are a unique phenomenon on the airwaves – a Christian and a Jew in an ongoing dialogue – celebrating the many commonalities but never shying away from the differences. They offer their listeners insights into each other’s faiths that don’t come up much elsewhere, that can only come through sincere conversation. The weekly discussion is more than a program about a topic; it’s a demonstration of how God can bring two people together from 9,000 miles away to bridge the differences, learn from each other, and strengthen their own faiths.
