Evangelicals and Jews Together: The Origins of Christian Zionism
In November 1917, the British government, which ruled the greatest empire in the history of the world, committed itself in an unusual way to the Jewish people: it promised to support the establishment of a Jewish homeland in Palestine, an area of the crumbling Ottoman Empire that it was about to conquer. This lecture examines the reasons behind the creation of a climate of opinion in Britain that supported the establishment of what would eventually become the State of Israel.
Don Lewis is Professor of Church History at Regent College. He has recently completed a book on the nineteenth-century background to the rise of Christian Zionism: The Origins of Christian Zionism: Evangelical Support for a Jewish Homeland. Read his full bio.
