We soon will be celebrating Passover in Israel, just prior to the 70th anniversary of the independence of the State of Israel in 1948 (5th Iyar, originally 14th of May).
Dr. Daniel Juster
The doctrine of the restoration of Israel has a long and revered place in the history of Protestant theology. Its roots go back to the Puritans. From there it passed to the Lutheran Pietists in Germany and Scandinavia. By the mid-19th century, it was the consensus doctrine of British and American Christianity. I summarize this history in my book, Passion for Israel.
