Introducing Chosen People Ministries’ Messianic Jewish Art Calendar. Every year is special, but this year we have a real cause to celebrate—because this year Israel is celebrating her 70th Birthday as a nation! On May 14th, 2018 the Jerusalem sky will be lit with beautiful displays of fireworks and thousands of Israelis will be dancing in the streets!
The earth is the Lord’s, and all its fullness (Psalm 24:1) is the theme of Chosen People Ministries’ art calendar this year. It features the photography of Lawrence Hirsch, the founder of “Celebrate Messiah,” Chosen People Ministries’ partner based in Melbourne, Australia.
Lawrence is a Jewish believer in Yeshua the Messiah. Born in South Africa, he discovered his love for photography as a teenager as he took photos of nature, people and sports. About his recent photo project in Israel, Lawrence says, “It was such a joy to be able to combine my love
for photography with my love for God, the Bible and Israel. Capturing the beauty of the Land and the people was exhilarating; Israel is a photographer’s paradise!”
Lawrence’s love of the Land of Israel coupled with his skill as an artist has given us a glimpse of how the beauty of God’s creation is revealed in the landscape of the Promised Land. This helps us to imagine how beautiful it will be in the fullness of time when Messiah returns to make all things new
