Apples, Bones and Conkers: The ABC’s of the Modern State of Israel
November 4, 2017 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm
Apples, Bones, and Conkers: The ABCs of the Nation of Israel Our production spans the period from 1885 to 1917. It begins with hope, the hope for a national homeland for the Jews. The family of Chaim Weizmann, living in Russia, read and rightly understood from the Old Testament scriptures that God had promised them the land of Israel and would regather them as a nation again, like dry bones being knit together to reform a body (Ezekiel 37). The play focusses on the declaration by Lord Balfour promising British support for a homeland for the Jewish people in Palestine. It concludes with General Allenby, the British commander, accepting the surrender of Jerusalem, freeing it from 400 years of Ottoman control. This dramatic change set the stage for the establishment of the State of Israel in 1948.
100 years ago, on November 2, 1917, the British Parliament issued a paper known as “The Balfour Declaration.” It expressed the support of the British Government for the establishment of a Jewish state in Palestine.
The Bible had foretold that after centuries of dispersion and persecution, the Jews would be brought back into their ancient homeland.
“Apples, Bones, and Conkers: The ABC’s of the Modern State of Israel” is a play produced by the Christadelphians that shows the dramatic historical background to this fulfilled Bible Prophecy.
