A heritage of devotion – Passover in Jerusalem
Kehilanews.com, Estera Wieja, Apr 16, 2019
For the first followers of Jesus, Jerusalem was central to their faith and ministry.
Although most of the disciples came from the Galilee, at the most crucial time in history – when Jesus was arrested, crucified and later rose from the dead – we find His friends in the Holy City, gathered for the holy days of Passover.
After Jesus ascended to Heaven weeks later, they remained in Jerusalem and waited for the fulfillment of their Savior’s words (Acts 1:4-5).
THEY WERE CONFIDENT THAT GOD WOULD FULFILL HIS PROMISES.
As a result of the disciples’ devotion and determination, the Gospel then spread throughout the world. In an exciting turn of events, this Good News of Salvation came back around to the Holy City with even greater impact after the State of Israel was born in 1948.
