Israelis, both Jews and Christians, are mourning the loss of Pastor Myles Munroe and his wife, killed in a place crash Sunday evening in the Bahamas.
“Myles Munroe was a key leader of the global evangelical movement, with a big heart for Israel,” the International Christian Embassy Jerusalem said in a statement. “His tragic passing is a loss for Christians and for the Jewish people he loved.”
Knesset Christian Allies Caucus Director Josh Reinstein remembered Munroe as a true friend of Israel.
“His faith and love of Israel was an inspiration to all of us,” Reinstein said. “Israel had no better friend, and the Knesset Christian Allies Caucus was honored to work with him.”
There were no survivors of Sunday’s plane crash. The Lear jet exploded on impact when it collided with a crane at the Grand Bahamas Shipyard on its landing approach.
The Bahamian government also expressed its condolences over the tragic loss of Pastor Munroe, his wife and the eight other passengers, which included several senior members of Munroe’s ministry.
