Artikel über Leben, Liturgie, Theologie, Gebräuche und Ereignisse der verschiedenen Kirchen und christlichen Gemeinschaften in Israel (Katholiken, Orthodoxe, Protestanten und messianische Juden).

Gary BurgeWhile most Evangelical Protestants are generally friendly to the Jewish people and the State of Israel, there is a small band of Evangelical pastors and professors who want to line up all Evangelicals unilaterally on the Palestinian side. The most egregious example may be Anglican vicar Stephen Sizer, whose has chummed up with the likes of Naturei Karta and Iranian President Ahmadinejad. But Gary Burge probably wields the greater influence.

Palm Sunday procession on the Mount of OlivesThere is nothing like experiencing Holy Week in Jerusalem. Celebrating the greatest events of salvation history and of Jesus’ life at the very sites where they occurred is a moving and unforgettable experience of faith for every believer who can be present.

Jerusalem seen from the Mount of OlivesIn the plan of God’s rule over history, Israel has a great role to play in preparing the nations for the return of the Messiah in glory. In the twentieth century began the great epochal change preparing mankind for the conclusive event of history: the final coming of the Kingdom of God, for which all Christians pray every day, saying: Thy Kingdom come!

The authors of the Kairos Palestine documentEnde 2009 tat sich eine kleine Gruppe christlicher palästinensischer Geistlicher und Laien zusammen und ersann ein Dokument mit dem Titel „Kairos Palästina“. Zwei Jahre später, hat der harte Kern der ursprünglichen Autoren in Bethlehem mit Unterstützern aus dem Ausland eine Konferenz zum Jahrestag abgehalten. Diesmal machten sie sich zum Tribunal, vor dem alle Kirchen der Welt angeklagt wurden, sie zeigten nicht genug Begeisterung für das damalige Dokument.

Christ at the CheckpointSeit mehr als zwei Jahrzehnten wird die christliche Welt von den Schriften selbst ernannter „palästinensischer christlicher Theologen“ durcheinander gebracht. Da ihre hellsten Leuchten protestantische Pastoren sind, sind sie kleine Lichter unter den überwiegend orthodoxen und katholischen Gläubigen des Heiligen Landes. Doch in modernistisch-protestantischen Kreisen des Auslands sind sie eigentümlich beliebt; Kirchenbürokraten hegen sie besonders.

Orthodox Monk in the Church of the Holy SepulchreThe Orthodox churches count among them some of the oldest churches in Christianity.  Because they almost all originated in the east they are usually known as the "eastern" churches.

Mass in the Church of the Holy SepulchreThe Hidden Roots of the Crisis of the Church in the Holy Land: In the troubled Holy Land, divided and torn by conflict, local Church leaders and Christians of all colors often claim to speak a tireless message of justice, reconciliation and peace. If only more people would listen to this message - so they claim - it would surely dramatically improve the prospects for peace between the conflicting parties in the region.But is this true?

Palestinian ChristiansThere has been much excellent academic study of the history of Christianity in the land of its birth. It could fill a whole library. In recent years, however, all that fine work has been eclipsed by the myth, created by the so-called "Palestinian narrative," of Palestinian Christianity.

Mar MarounCatholics for Israel are highly aware of the precarious and difficult situation you find yourselves in.  We are not against you by calling ourselves Catholics for Israel. It is precisely the concern for the situation you are in and the complexity of your situation that is motivating us to address and speak out those things that today most Catholics are afraid to even think about.

Kairos PalestineDas selbst so benannte “Kairos Palestina”-Dokument wurde am 11. Dezember 2009 der Öffentlichkeit in Bethlehem von einem Gremium, dem der ehemalige lateinische Patriarch Michel Sabbah vorstand, vorgestellt. Das Dokument soll die Kirchen weltweit zur Unterstützung eines Plans mobilisieren, der Boykotts, Enteignungen und die Delegitimierung des Staates Israels vorsieht.
