Christian Zionists argue that Zionism and the creation of the state of Israel should be seen as the fulfillment of biblical promises and prophecies and therefore tend to be very supportive of Israel. But is this the only way to use the Bible to understand the Israeli-Palestinian conflict? What do Old Testament writers say about the nation of Israel and the promised land? And how do New Testament writers interpret these Old Testament promises and prophecies? What does it mean for Christians today to be peacemakers and hunger and thirst after righteousness/justice? All the webinars are designed to be as interactive as possible. The first three include a 40-minute presentation followed by 30 minutes of Q&A, and the fourth contains presentations from speakers with differing viewpoints.
