In spite of it being winter in New Zealand, a 21-year-old former officer from Israel, Maya,* decided to travel to the islands and stay at the Zula Lodge. The Zula Lodge is a Chosen People Ministries facility offering free accommodation to Israelis. Maya, although secular, had a sincere love for the Tanakh (the Jewish Scriptures), so Roly and Karen, staff members at Zula, spent hours ministering to her from the Scriptures. She had never read the New Testament and was fascinated to learn more about the connection between the Old and New Testaments. Like most Jewish people, Maya had never read Isaiah chapter 53. Could Jesus truly be Israel’s Messiah? Maya has begun reading the Hebrew New Testament and is excited to continue studying the Bible with a Jewish believer in Israel. Our Chosen People Ministries associate, Robin, will be contacting Maya in Jerusalem for further Bible study.
