J.M. Smith loves the Word of God. He wanted to learn all he could about its history, its meaning and its prophecy. So, he studied. And he studied, hard… What he found didn’t seem to check all the theological boxes he was raised to believe, so he went right to the source – the cradle of Christianity. What he found in Bethlehem shattered his preconceptions, and opened him up to a bold new faith – a faith in a Savior who is radically transforming the Middle East even now. He tells Bram Floria about it today, in part 1 of this series.
