Is There a Biblical Case for Zionism?

I say then, God has not rejected His people, has He? May it never be! For I too am an Israelite, a descendant of Abraham, of the tribe of Benjamin. God has not rejected His people whom He foreknew.  Romans 11:1-2

Since the formation of a Jewish nation state in 1948, most evangelical Christians in the West considered this a positive development worthy of support and prayer, even a fulfillment of Biblical prophecy.

This is changing.  Many self-professed evangelicals, particularly the younger generation, see no undue importance or prophetic significance for the Jewish people and Israel.  This view is called “replacement theology” where the church—all believers in Christ—has replaced the Jews as the God’s “chosen people.”

Plus, there is a ever-growing anti-Jewish settlement in the world, even a seething genocidal hatred of Israel amongst Muslims in the Middle East.

Where is this all going?  Does the Bible really teach and want Christians to support Zionism, the revival of a Jewish homeland?  And if so, what does supporting the Jewish people, even considering the Christ-rejecting stance of most of them, look like?

Dr. Thomas Ice, conference speaker and director of the Pre-Trib Research Center, will join us to discuss these questions in light of his latest book, The Case for Zionism.
