Joseph Shulam was born in Sofia, Bulgaria in 1946 to a Sephardic Jewish Family. In 1948 his family immigrated to Israel just before the establishment of the State. Joseph grew up in Jerusalem. While in high school he was introduced to the New Testament and immediately identified with the person of Yeshua. Joseph’s fascination with the teaching of Yeshua eventually brought him to faith in God and the Messiah. This caused his family to reject him. As a result of that rejection he traveled to the United States and finished high school in Dasher, Georgia. After a short study in Michigan Christian College, he returned to Jerusalem and enrolled in the Hebrew University, there he studied Biblical Archaeology and Bible. From the Hebrew University of Jerusalem, Joseph returned to the United States and studied New Testament and Chemistry in David Lipscomb University in Nashville, Tennessee. There he met Marcia Saunders and after a short courtship they were married.
Join the School of Christian Thought’s morning seminar on Islam on Sunday, June 28th with Joe Shulam. Our goal is to help Christians understand the threat of international Islam and know how to respond as Jesus would with the truth of the Gospel. Joe Shulam can help us with this because he not only lives among many Muslims in Jerusalem, but he also counts Muslims as some of his friends. More details about times and session titles will be released soon.
