Makuya Students in Israel


In order to understand the deep meaning of the Bible and to draw its spiritual life we need to read the Bible in its original language and environment. This is true also for the plays of Shakespeare whose message is more fully understood by visiting England and witnessing its social, cultural, and historical background.

Teshima Ikuro started in 1962 to send his students to study in Israel. These students first study the Hebrew language in Kibbutz Heftsi-bah and later in higher classes in other Kibbutzim or universities. They also tour the Holy Land where the Bible was written, and study the history and culture of the Jewish people.

The students also learn the pioneering spirit and the patriotic love of the people of Israel, who have established their own country after their long history of persecutions and are trying to build a free and prosperous nation. Thus, they learn the love of God, the love of the Bible, and the love of Israel.

There is another purpose of studying in Israel: they have their identities awaken as a Japanese and a believer, and discover their own missions in life. Like the prophets of Israel and the disciples of Jesus they wish to start a consecrated life by listening to the voice of God and by praying earnestly for their spiritual growth.

Studying and praying and living together in Israel, they develop a life-long friendship; their experience of deepening love and concern for their peers will be a treasure in their remaining life. Upon returning to Japan, each student continues to live for the sake of Japan with the faith in the Bible.
