Pastor Nihad Salman
The Holy Land is the place where many of the events from the Bible took place, and it’s the location where three of the worlds’ major religions come to pray. However, it is also a region that has experienced a lot of conflict through the years. One of the sad results of Israeli-Palestinian hostilities is the exodus of Palestinian Christians in large numbers. In Bethlehem - the birthplace of Christianity - the city has seen a drop in its Christian population from 85% to under 30%. Greg Musselman sat down with Pastor Nihad Salman, Senior Pastor of Immanuel Evangelical Church in Bethlehem to talk about this dire situation.
