Last year’s Summer Witnessing Campaign was an exciting time for those of us who participated in presenting the gospel through literature and drama on the streets of New York City.

Discipleship, What Is It?
Author: Joshua Moss

The New Testament is a Jewish book! With one possible exception (Luke, who may have been a Gentile proselyte) every author is Jewish.
