What is Christian Zionism?

Christian Zionism merges theology and politics. It teaches that the secular State of Israel is a fulfillment of Biblical prophecy. Christian Zionism believes that this fulfillment of Biblical prophecy began when European Jews started moving to Palestine in the 1800s, and continued as Israel became a nation in 1948. Christian Zionists believe that modern Israel is a continuation of Biblical Israel and therefore should enjoy special privileges. They declare that it is the responsibility of Christians to support the State of Israel and its policies.

An invitation for you

We invite you to explore the basis for Christian Zionism and to find answers to some perplexing questions. For example, is contemporary Israel the fulfillment of Biblical prophecy? Are the Jewish people God’s chosen people today? Has God promised the land of Palestine exclusively to the Jewish people as an everlasting inheritance? How should Christians view the Palestinians and especially the Palestinian church?

We welcome you to join us in pondering these crucial issues...

Too many American Christians are uncritical, unreflective, and naive concerning the deep human crisis that is taking place in “the Holy Land.” That naiveté, moreover, is reinforced by the pressure of Israeli Zionism combined with romantic notions about the Holy Land. This resource is a welcome one for overcoming such uncritical naiveté and for facing the real crisis there. We have so much to unlearn as American Christians; here is a good reference for that urgent work.

Every morning when I was a boy, one of my grandfathers would read the morning paper closely looking for information about Israel, because he believed that Bible prophecies were being fulfilled before our eyes. He awoke each day with a sense of excitement to see connections between the Bible and today's news. I wish he'd had access to the kind of information available at christianzionism.org, because it would have helped him see even deeper ways the Bible is relevant to today's news. For all who consider themselves Christian Zionists, this site is a must, and will be of interest for all those simply curious about Israel and the Bible. It is respectful, thoughtful, and accessible to all.
