This paper is about the conflict between Israel and Palestine. Let me begin by suggesting three reasons why we should be interested in this subject.
1. It is often described as one of the most long-standing, complex and bitter conflicts in the world, and it has profound implications for the peace of the Middle East and the whole world.
2. It raises huge questions about how we should interpret the Bible and understand history as it is unfolding before our eyes today.
3. It concerns our mission to the world, and especially to the Jewish people and the Muslim world. It is therefore very appropriate that we should be looking at this subject in Encounters.
