Bible Teacher Lance Lambert Dies in Jerusalem
JERUSALEM, Israel -- Beloved Bible scholar and teacher Lance Lambert passed away Sunday in Jerusalem at the age of 84.
Born in Richmond, Surry, in 1931, Lambert grew up in England and came to know the Lord as a 12 year old.
Later he prepared to enter the ministry in China, but was denied entry because of the Communist revolution.
Lambert served in the Royal Air Force in Egypt in the early 1950s, where he learned the nuts and bolts of intercessory prayer. From time to time, he would remind his audiences that people who referred to themselves as intercessors often were not.
After embracing his Jewish roots, Lambert received Israeli citizenship in 1980, making Jerusalem his home. His father and many members of his family perished in the Holocaust.
Lambert was a sought-out speaker on intercessory and corporate prayer and God's covenant relationship with Israel and the Jewish people and the author of numerous books.
He hosted a weekly prayer meeting in his home in Jerusalem's Yemin Moshe neighborhood.
