A day is coming when Jew and Gentile will live in peace (Shalom) because they worship the one true God and are following the one true savior – Jesus / Y’shua / Isa. The Bible tells us that Christ is our peace (Ephesians 2:14) and that he has already torn down the dividing wall of hostility between otherwise warring factions.

The Isaac-Ishmael Initiative exists to be part of tearing down the walls of hostility between the descendants of Abraham’s two sons – Isaac and Ishmael – who will be reunited in the Kingdom of God. Today we wait expectedly for that fulfillment.

We are not naive; today there are more than 400 peace plans in the Middle East. None of them are working very well. And yet the peace (shalom) offered in and through Jesus the Christ is the ultimate hope for Jew and Arab alike.
