On January 22, 1988, Jerusalem Heads of Churches issued a public statement on the situation of Palestinian Christians in the Holy Land in reaction to the first Intifada. Over the next twenty years, they issued 67 more remarkable statements of common witness from this conflicted land. / In Jerusalem Testament these statements are ― for the first time ― collected and presented as a body of texts. Melanie May assembles them into a testament that bears witness to: the Gospel of Jesus Christ, the faith and hope of Palestinian Christians, and the faith of the Church anew, incarnate in the lives of Christians living in the land of Jesus’ birth, death, resurrection and ascension. / Each chapter begins by setting the context of the particular era ― the first and second Intifadas, the Oslo Accords ― followed by the statements themselves. / This unprecedented gathering calls Christians worldwide to a new covenant with brothers and sisters in the Holy City of Jerusalem.
