Show Notes

  • Protests against the rule of Ayatollah Khamenei are filling the streets of Iran. How deep does America’s support of the protesters go, and does this threaten the Iranian regime?
  • Japan has been governed by a pacifist constitution ever since World War II. But in recent years, the nation is returning to a stronger, more nationalistic and even militaristic posture. We’ll talk about why you should watch this trend.
  • We are about to begin a new phase of archaeology in Jerusalem. We’ll talk with Trumpet writer and archaeologist Brent Nagtegaal about our record of finds that confirm the Bible’s veracity, and what we hope to find in this dig.
  • And finally, a few words to you husbands—about what to do when your wife is discouraged.
