This book explores whether Christians’ support of the modern state of Israel is justified according to the scripture.
The belief that God judges people based how they treat the Jewish people and the state of Israel is based on the promise God made to Abraham that God will bless those who bless Abraham and curse whoever curse Abraham (Genesis 12:3).
Is God’s promise to Abraham still applicable to his descendants today? Even though the promise was iterated by Abraham’s son (Isaac) to his grandson (Jacob), like the promise to Abraham, it was a personal blessing.
Unlike the present day Israel that wants an exclusive Jewish state, Moses warned the Jews against racial exclusivity (Deuteronomy 23:7-8). King David looked forward to the day when other races would share the same identity and privileges as the Israelites (Psalm 87:4). God welcome “those who acknowledge me” — an inclusive Israel. The Bible does not grant a racial exclusivity; it does not give any race preferential or elevated status in God’s kingdom.
