Breaking Israel News recently published an article entitled “The Lost Story of How One Christian Sect’s Biblical Beliefs Kept 250 Jewish Children Alive”.

It relates how following Kristallnacht in November 1938, Britain, the only willing host country, began the Kindertransport, taking in over 10,000 Jewish children from Austria, , and Germany and tells how the participation of Christadelphians in the Kindertransport saved 250 Jewish children from almost certain death.

It highlights a book, “Part of the Family”, written by Jason Hensley which tells the story of the Christadelphian families who took in Jewish children and cared for them as their own while allowing them to maintain their faith. Hensley interviewed ten of the survivors saved by the Christadelphians.

We believe the Jews are God’s people. We also believe that through Christ and by God’s grace, we can become part of God’s people, or family, as well.

Eph 3:6  Here is the mystery. Because of the good news, God's promises are for non-Jews as well as for Jews. Both groups are parts of one body. They share in the promise. It belongs to them because they belong to Christ Jesus. (NIRV)
