Understanding our Time

Dr. Herbert Hillel Goldberg

Many people are unable to apply the allegorical references of the Bible to the present. Equipment and instructions are suited for a specific time. I am antique enough to remember guiding a plow pulled by a horse. I also remember seeing women scrubbing clothes on a metal washboard and, once they were dry, running them […]

Fact vs. Fable
– God’s Word is eternal (Isaiah 40:8)

David B. Goldberg, M.A.

It was the end of Shabbat and I had just finished praying at the Kotel, the ancient wall of the Jerusalem Temple site, as our family has done each week for the past quarter century. I had read the names of over seven hundred people who had contacted us from around the world in recent […]

Blessing the Nations

David B. Goldberg, M.A.

The parents of a newborn baby had been advised by their local doctor in an Arab village east of Tel Aviv to have an abortion because their baby was developing intestines outside her body. But they refused. Recently, Israeli doctors in Jerusalem performed surgery on the 17-hour-old girl and put all the organs back in […]

Inspiring scenes in Israel

David B. Goldberg, M.A.

What do the following stories all have in common? A curious message was left on our answering machine in Jerusalem a few days ago: A store clerk called and said my father had been at the pharmacy and forgotten two shekels of change on the counter. If my father wanted the coin, he should come […]

This, too, is Jerusalem

Dr. Herbert Hillel Goldberg

It was Thursday afternoon, May 26. We had just said our farewells to guests visiting from Australia when we noticed smoke, assuming it came from the Arabs burning garbage across the valley from us, as they often did in the night to irritate us. Then we saw the small planes, ultimately there were eight of […]

Who Battles Against the Truth?

Dr. Herbert Hillel Goldberg

God is Truth! In the book of His Word, the Truth is communicated with us. The Jewish People are God’s personal possession (Deut. 7:6). Worldwide, the Jews are known as the People of the Book. Nowhere is the resistance and battle against God–the Truth–expressed more strongly than in the negative treatment of Jews internationally. This […]

Abraham’s Biggest Test: Why?

Gabriel A. Goldberg, M.A.

As Abraham raised the knife to slaughter his son Isaac upon the altar, an angel of the LORD called out to Abraham and said: “Do not stretch out your hand against the lad nor do anything to him, for now I know that you are a God-fearing man, since you have not withheld your son, […]

Prophecy becomes Reality Today

Dr. Herbert Hillel Goldberg

In the 1970s, I spoke across Canada and the United States especially about eschatology (endtime themes). In that connection, I analyzed chapters 38 and 39 of the prophet Ezekiel in detail. These deal with the attack of Gog of Magog and several of its allies from the north against the “land that is brought back […]

Why Would God Kill Moses?

Gabriel A. Goldberg, M.A.

There is a bizarre incident early in the book of Exodus that reveals a fundamental principle about God’s relationship with Israel. Brief, it seems secondary to the bigger story of the Exodus. It is, however, at the very heart of the matter. Importantly, the strange episode draws our attention to events today. It serves as […]
