Frequently we hear expressions of exasperations against the teaching of History.
“What possible relevance could all those events of long ago have for me today?”
Well, take 9/11. Did those responsible for the terror attacks 17 years ago just choose an arbitrary date for the aircraft hijackings and attacks on 11 September 2001? Those who know the history of Islamic Jihad can point out that the 11th of September is a most significant date for Jihadists. Tune into our programme and learn what else significantly happened on 11 September. It is an extraordinary story of Christian courage against all odds, as seen during the siege of Malta and the siege of Vienna. It includes the origin of croissants, bagels and cappuccinos.
“Now these things became our examples, to the intent that we should not lust after evil things as they also lusted… Now all these things happened to them as examples and they were written for our admonition…”
1 Corinthians 10:6-11
