الشرق الأوسط في نبؤات الكتاب المقدس

A one minute video promotion of our new Arabic booklet, “The Middle East in Bible Prophecy,” has been posted on YouTube and it is beginning to gather traffic. You can view it here:

The promo clip was created by Jamie Schreiber, one of our competent video editors at the home office, and posted to our Beyond Today YouTube account by Aaron Booth, Internet managing editor.

  2. Great video. Just wondering why we chose this booklet as the first booklet to transcribe? Doesn’t seem an attractive message for anyone in the Middle East.

    Are we in the Church painting the Muslim community with a broad brush…much like the Western World and especially America is? For the most part, Muslim’s have the same beef with mainstream Christianity and Jews that we in the Church have (remember, Muhommad lived and wrote only two to three centuries after the Council of Nicea and at a time where the Catholic Church was rising on the back of the Roman Empire. It was claiming for its own important places throughout the Middle East. The peoples of that area were probably getting pretty sick and tired of it). Certainly, we in the Church aren’t violent about it, but neither are the majority of Muslims. I’ve read most of the Koran on a couple of occasions. Certainly, that doesn’t make me a knowledgeable person or scholar at all. But, I’ve also read Muslim scholar commentaries. There appears to be only two places in the Koran where Muhammad promoted any violence and both were in situations where Muslims were being forced NOT to practice their religion. Then they were allowed to strike back.

    Conversely, the Koran criticizes Jews and Christians for not following Moses, Aaron, the Prophets, Christ, etc. That Jews and Christians rebelled against their own leaders. Hmmm…sound like a familiar message?

    We probably haven’t separated in our minds the few radical Muslim groups that promote violence from the majority. We might liken it to saying the Nazi’s or the KKK represent all of Christianity. They don’t.

    Paul always seemed to find common ground with his audience to get his message across. Mr. Armstrong often did as well. Remember when he spoke in China? His whole message was about the way of give and get—a message any people or culture can relate to.

    Maybe the text of our booklet was modified to find that common ground.

    Again, great video. Good work with graphics.

    David.
