The Ministry I Work For

30 Years!
It was 30 years ago that renowned Hebrew-Christian Bible teacher and author Marv Rosenthal moved from his home in New Jersey to begin a new ministry in Orlando, Florida. As a Hebrew-Christian myself living in New Mexico (a New York City transplant), I had no idea at the time how much that move would alter my life!

The ministry Marv started is called Zion’s Hope, which strives to bring the saving message of salvation in Jesus Christ to the Jewish people. Here is an excerpt from our website:

Zion’s Hope is committed to the proclamation of the Gospel and the preparation of God’s people for Christ’s return and the end of the age. Zion’s Hope is a Bible-based ministry whose purpose is to proclaim to Jewish and Gentile people throughout the world their need for personal salvation through Jesus, the Messiah of Israel.

Making Marv’s Acquaintance
I had known about Marv for several years and, in September of 1989, I called him to invite him to speak at our church. As we spoke and I told him about my Jewish upbringing and that I was, at the time, a journalist, Marv invited me to come work for him.

The problem, however, was that I was divorced and had shared-custody of my 6-year-old son. Marv said, “No problem,” and invited me to write for his magazine Zion’s Fire (present circulation 70,000), and to come work for him in 12 years when my son graduated from high school.

This is precisely what happened.

With this brief background, I’d like to invite you to check out our website and especially our YouTube page, which features more than 150 teaching videos by our staff of six outstanding teachers.

Our videos – many of which deal with the end-times, as well as the geopolitical realities of the Middle East today – are Bible-based, highly informative, and designed to give viewers the big picture of what is truly happening in our world today.
