Why Do Evangelicals Love Jews and Support Israel?

Christian rhetoric and antipathy towards Jews developed in the early years of Christianity, and the Church Fathers identified Jews and Judaism with heresy and declared the people of Israel to be extra Deum (lat. “outside of God”). They viewed the destruction of the second temple and the exile of the Jews from their land as a sign of God’s displeasure with the people who rejected and killed their messiah. The Church, they believed, was the “New Israel.” This attitude changed in recent centuries when one stream of Christianity emerged and grew into a worldwide movement that completely transformed its attitude toward the Jews and the Promised Land. Rabbi Tovia Singer explains in this broadcast how a church doctrine changed the course of history.
