Introduction to Christian Zionism: Its Roots and Fruits – Israel Today

Posted By on August 9, 2021

Join us for this special 4-part interactive online course taught by Israeli researcher, author and teacher Dr. Gustavo Perednik.

In his own words, he wants to help us better understand Israel and to value its importance for Western Civilization and the world at large to not only provide information to anyone interested in the subject but give tools to every supporter of Israel who wants to expound the Zionist cause. Such a task, for us Zionists, is a way to improve the world. Since Jews in the Diaspora do not have the commitment to Israel that they had in the past, Christian Zionism can play an essential role in the defense of the Jewish state, namely the defense of freedom.

Dr. Gustavo Perednik has fascinating insights into Christian approaches to Israel. He claims: A Christian should be a Zionist, becauseChristianity loses its identity when it neglects Jewish history, including the return of the Jews to Zion.

The course presents the role of Christian personalities and groups in the inception and fulfillment of Zionism and the Jewish State, tracing its roots within the framework of Zionist history. The course deals with the metamorphosis of the image of the Jew in Christian texts since Henry Finch, the influence of the King James Version, Restorationism, Oliphants work in Eretz Yisrael, the presence of Christian Zionism in literature, the Balfour Declaration, and the main Christian contributions to the establishment and consolidation of Israel (see full syllabus below).
