Finding Spiritual Oneness in Interfaith Relationships

Meet Ron and Liessa Randle

The Best of Both Worlds

Some might think that Liessa broke the chain of her Jewish heritage. Others might conclude that Ron watered down his African-American culture. But as far as this couple is concerned, they have the best of both worlds. How did they overcome the disapproval of one parent? What happens in a "mixed" marriage when there is tension between the two communities from which they come? What about the children? And how does faith in Jesus factor into the equation? For answers to those questions, we interviewed Ron and Liessa Randle who have been married since 1981.

Meet Oded and Bimini Cohen

Oded Cohen is an Israeli-born Jewish believer in Y'shua. His wife, Bimini, is Chinese. Neither, however, were believers in Jesus at the time they were married. Bimini was the first to come to faith, and Oded recalls that his reaction was, "Oh boy, what am I going to do now?" However, he was challenged to consider Jesus by some of the Jews for Jesus staff as well as by Bimini. After some answers to prayer and a series of dreams, Oded too became convinced that Jesus is the promised Messiah. He notes, "Since I've accepted Jesus as my Lord and Savior, not only have I not lost my Jewishness—instead, it has been the other way around. I feel more Jewish than ever." Oded and Bimini both serve in missionary work on the Jews for Jesus staff.

Meet Peter and Yarden Nasser

Intermarried: How an Arab and a Jew found common ground.

Peter and Yarden Nasser met at a festival in Akko (in the Western Galilee region of Northern Israel). Unlike most of the participants, they went to celebrate Y’shua and to tell festival-goers about Him. In the course of evangelizing, Yarden, a Jewish believer, asked Peter, an Arab believer, to translate something to help her witness. They made such a good team that they continued witnessing together at other events following the festival. Soon they were telling one another about books they had read and things they had thought about. Peter wanted a wife who loved to evangelize, but Yarden, who really did love to witness, wasn’t thinking of marriage at the time. Still, she couldn’t help being interested in the fact that Peter was not only a great guy, but obviously cared for Jewish people—and wanted to tell them about Jesus. He eventually won her heart, and three years later they were married.
