Taking a page out of Ben-Gurion and Begin’s playbook, PM will begin hosting a regular Bible group in his official residence.
Taking a page out of David Ben-Gurion and Menachem Begin’s playbook, Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu will begin hosting a regular Bible study group in his official residence for researchers, public officials and invited guests.
Netanyahu announced the establishment of the study circle on Friday at a ceremony marking 30 days since the passing of his father-in-law, Shmuel Ben-Artzi. The study group will be named after Ben-Artzi, a noted poet and Bible teacher.
Both Ben-Gurion and Begin, when they each served as prime minister, hosted regular Bible study groups.
Netanyahu said he was establishing the class to perpetuate love of the Bible.
Last Sunday, at a ceremony in Sde Boker marking the 38th anniversary of Ben-Gurion’s death, Netanyahu recalled the first premier’s Bible study class, saying that his father-in-law used to attend.
“Ben-Gurion understood that the Book of Books is our mandate for our country, as he said in that same unforgettable statement before the Peel Commission in 1936,” Netanyahu said. “He viewed the Bible as the wondrous story of the Jewish people, the unique spiritual, cultural and historic heritage of our people, and also as one of the cornerstones of all of human culture.”

This is good news. The existence of the state of Israel can only be truly justified by the Word of God. The promises given to the blood line of King David, that his sons and daughters are the caretakers of the land, up till the Messiah comes.
I hope Benjamin Netanyahu also opens his door to Messianic Jews. They are also subjects of the Prime Ministers office.
They can explain to the PM, the true meaning of Psalm 22, and Isaiah 53. Also Isaiah 9:6.
For to us a child is born, to us a son is given, and the government will be on his shoulders. And he will be called Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace.
How wonderful it would be, if Benjamin Netanyahu invites followers of Yeshua to explain these verses to him. And Bibi comes up with this conclusion:
“Ops….I feel the Jewish people live in denial. It is only Yeshua who can fulfill these prophecies. Is it true? Is He still with us. Do He still love us. Can only He stop the Grand rockets from flying from Gaza to Asdod?”.
Our reply must be: “Yes, yes, yes. Hallejulja”.
