Programme 254 - David Pileggi

This week I'm in Jerusalem talking to David Pileggi, the rector of Christ Church, the oldest Protestant Church in the Middle East. Completed in 1849, it was built for numerous reasons, but the foremost was that the founders of CMJ (Christian Mission to Jews) had a great love and concern for the Jewish people and wanted to share with them the Good News of Messiah Jesus. They also anticipated the Jewish return to the Land of Israel in fulfillment of what was understood to be Bible prophecy (long before the advent of Zionism) and wanted to be in a position to help that process. Today Christ Church is an evangelical Anglican congregation comprised of expatriates who have come to serve in Israel or the West Bank along with local believers (both Jews and Arabs). David begins by describing where the majority of visitors to Christ Church come from.

David Pileggi is the Director of Alexander College at Christ Church in Jerusalem and is a teacher for Shoresh Study Tours. Alexander College is dedicated to serving Christ by helping Christians come into a deeper understanding of the sacred text so that we may become better disciples of Jesus the Messiah. "At Alexander College, we use the Holy Land as our classroom and the Bible as our textbook to help participants dig deep into the soil of Israel and recover their Jewish roots."Among the thousands of participants in Alexander College programs are many Anglican leaders from Africa and the Global South. Upon completion of an advanced degree at Hebrew University, David was ordained to the priesthood in Uganda by Archbishop Henry Orombi. He now also serves as interim rector of Christ Church in Jerusalem. David and his wife Carol have three children.

Our primary teacher is Dr. David Pileggi. He and his wife Carol have been in Israel for thirty-five years and their three children were born here. He has served as the Rector of Christ Church for the last six years. We first met David on a study tour which he led in 2006. He has a commanding presence and passionate love for this land and culture. He earned his PhD from the Hebrew University in Jerusalem and teaches on the Jewish roots of Christianity. He speaks fluent Hebrew. When he is teaching he closes his eyes and knowledge pours forth. He once commented that he closes his eyes because his notes are on the back of his eyelids!

David and Carol have opened their home and their hospitality to us. We have met with David several times a week in both planned and ad hoc meetings. He guides us on what to see then we bring our questions to him. This has led to many fascinating conversations. One of our favourite memories was a walking tour with David and Carol in the city. We visited some places historic for Christ Church as well as an ultra-orthodox Jewish neighbourhood. It was so sensitive there that we stopped on the border but did not enter it. We finished in the Jewish souk (an open market) with a delicious dinner at a Kurdish restaurant.
David's role as the Rector of Christ Church is extremely challenging and complex. He has said, "the world is my parish" and that is true as the world passes through this place. But the message being shared here is eternally important. It is that Jesus is the Messiah for all the world; for the Jew, the Muslim, the Hindu, the Buddhist and the New Ager. Today when many people in the Western church have lost confidence in their faith, in the Middle Eastern world people are turning to faith in Jesus Christ in the most amazing and miraculous ways. We need to pray for David and the work that is being done in this center of faith in Jerusalem.
