DAVID NEUHAUS – JEWISH BELIEVER IN JESUS
“This film is like a sustained prayer for justice and peace in Israel and Palestine and, like every prayer we pray, at its very center is the gentle man of Galilee in whose crucified body we find the true peace that brings down the walls of enmity and makes us one.”
Father David is a Jesuit Priest in Jerusalem. He was born in South Africa into a Jewish family of German origin. He came to faith in the Messiah as a young student studying in Jerusalem.
