The Rabbi's Husband
Welcome to The Rabbi’s Husband podcast where your host, Mark Gerson, meets with fellow seekers of biblical truth to unearth the inspiring, instructive, and highly practical wisdom of Torah passages. Mark’s guest this week is Bishop Robert Stearns, founder and leader of Eagles’ Wings, a parachurch ministry focusing on creating and strengthening the bonds between Christian leaders and the State of Israel physically, spiritually, and holistically.In this episode, Mark and Robert discuss Caleb, the first political Zionist, the lessons to be learned from the Bible and Caleb’s role particularly, and the parallels Robert finds between Caleb and his own work today. They also reflect upon the power of Jewish-Gentile friendship and cooperation, especially in current times, and Robert shares some lessons he has learned during his lengthy career as a Pastor. As Mark notes, “Everything in the Bible is trying to teach us something about how we can live our lives better and more meaningfully today”, and you can rest assured that the wealth of insight and knowledge shared in this episode offers a formidable step forward in this profoundly rewarding journey of discovery.Episode Highlights:Caleb’s first appearance in the Torah and the lesson it offers The power that the Bible possesses The Ereb Rab Robert’s work in the world today Jewish-Gentile friendship and cooperation Some lessons Robert has learned as a pastorQuotes:“The Torah is living and active.”“One of the great gifts of the Jewish people to the world is this understanding of an ordered universe under the care and auspices of a benevolent, good Creator God.”“Caleb is the archetype of the Gentile who links himself to the spiritual journey.”“Israel…you are well able to have a thriving, blessed society in your ancient borders because God has ordained this.”“We’re living in a moment that has great continuity all the way back to Caleb and Joshua of Jewish and Gentile cooperation around ethical monotheism.”Numbers 13:1-33 The LORD spoke to Moses, saying, “Send men to scout the land of Canaan, which I am giving to the Israelite people; send one man from each of their ancestral tribes, each one a chieftain among them.” So Moses, by the LORD’s command, sent them out from the wilderness of Paran, all the men being leaders of the Israelites. https://www.sefaria.org/Numbers.13.1-3?lang=bi&aliyot=0Links:The Rabbi’s Husband homepage: http://therabbishusband.com/Mark’s Twitter: https://twitter.com/markgerson?lang=enEagles’ Wings homepage: https://eagleswings.org/
Week of Prayer / Monday - Ask for the Ancient Pathways – Robert Stearns
President's Chapel @ Elim Bible Institute & College
We must look back to where our faith started. We need to see an uprising of God lovers and spirit walkers who are pressing in to what God has for them. We can look at what people in the Bible walked through and learn from their examples. We must not be afraid to make waves in the world. The path of God is not easier or normal; it is supernatural and powerful.
Robert Stearns: Shaping the Millenial’s Views of Israel
The Teacher and the Preacher
Episode Summary Dr. Robert Stearns of Eagles’ Wings Ministries joins the Teacher and the Preacher today to discuss his efforts in trying to reshape the views that Millenials hold for Israel. About the Teacher and The Preacher The Teacher and the Preacher is a weekly radio program–hosted by Dave McGarrah, Senior Pastor at Deer Flat Church in Caldwell, Idaho, and Harold Berman of Efrat, Israel–that airs each Sunday at 10:30 am and 7:30 pm here on 94.1 The Voice KBXL and also on Sunday evenings at 5 pm on our sister station 790 KSPD. They are a unique phenomenon on the airwaves – a Christian and a Jew in an ongoing dialogue – celebrating the many commonalities but never shying away from the differences. They offer their listeners insights into each other’s faiths that don’t come up much elsewhere, that can only come through sincere conversation. The weekly discussion is more than a program about a topic; it’s a demonstration of how God can bring two people together from 9,000 miles away to bridge the differences, learn from each other, and strengthen their own faiths.
