The Jerusalem Post: In an interview with Pastor Young Hoon Lee, Senior Pastor of the largest mega-church in the world in Seoul, founded in 1958 by Pastor David Yonggi Cho, Pastor Lee shared his thoughts regarding the importance of Israel’s role to Korean Christians. Pastor Lee also shared his thoughts on the historical and biblical significance of the rebirth of Israel as a nation and the return of the Jewish people.
Excerpt from The Jerusalem Post:
Although it is located on the other side of the globe from Korea, Israel is important for Korean Christians. It is where God’s revelation took place. It is the land of the Bible. Most of all, Israel is where Jesus was born and lived. This is why Korean Christians, just like any other Christians in the world, are very much interested in Israel. Psalm 122:6 says, “Pray for the peace of Jerusalem: May those who love you be secure.” In keeping with this command, Korean Christians pray for the peace of Israel and Jerusalem.
