This book has opened my eyes and my heart to what the "church" has done to our elder brother. Please read this book with an open mind and the Holy Spirit's guidance. It has really affected me and my thinking.

If only every Christian, every member of every Church, irrespective of denomination, would read the contents of this book. Read and then study the contents and the parallel Scriptures with an open and honest heart, then the world would see such a revival.
Replacement theology would be a thing of the past. God's Promises and inheritance to the Jewish people would at last be understood and the Church would realise it's true relationship to Israel and the Jewish people upon which their faith is founded.
Indeed, for all peoples of all religions, the contents of this book should be studied. Anti-Semitism is on the increase and we owe it to ourselves to know the truth about the Jewish people and the Land of Israel as it is actually outlined in the Scriptures. This book opens up these facts to us in an easy to read and clear manner that is so easy to understand.
This book proves from Scripture how God sees the Jewish people and Israel. This book reveals to us all that we need to know. With this knowledge, our outlook will receive explosive implications in relation to our interpretation of current events, which will never be the same again. A must read !

In these 14 chapters the author describes his own awakening to the knowledge of the role of Israel and the Jewish people in God's plan.

He explores the profound contribution of the Jews in both the secular and spiritual fields, and explains convincingly why this nation has always been targeted for oppression and genocide.

Finto looks at the early Jewish Church in Jerusalem and how the later church became separated from its roots after the Roman destruction of Jerusalem and the Temple. The rejection of its Jewish roots severed Christianity from its spiritual source to a large extent, leading to countless schisms and divisions up to the present.

If you have ever wondered why there are so many churches and so much disagreement amongst them, this book will make it very clear. And for a heart-rending account of how so-called Christians persecuted the Jews down the ages, please consult Christian Anti-Semitism: A History of Hate by William Nicholls.

The author then discusses the birth of modern Israel in 1948, pointing out the hand of providence in its restoration and survival. Since then, and especially since 1967, the original Church has also been restored in the form of Messianic Jews. They are Jewish people who believe in Yeshua our Redeemer.

Chapter Eleven considers the words of the apostle Paul and sees in them a fulfilment of prophecy, as true Christians and Jewish followers of our Saviour start embracing one another. Finto warns about a deteriorating world situation in Chapter 13, explaining that the birth pangs of the reunited Body of Christ will not occur without trial and tribulation.

Chapter 14 provides valuable practical advice on how to love and support the Jewish people in these times. We must become aware of the new Anti-Semitism (often disguised as Anti-Zionism), and counteract the prejudice of the mass media against Israel where possible. In this regard, I refer the interested reader to the book The New Antisemitism by Phyllis Chesler. Finto observes that those who are not actively involved become passively wicked.

Furthermore, our devotion to Israel and those still in the Diaspora must never be tied to their acceptance of Yeshua as Messiah. Those attempts have only led to disaster in the past. In any case, Israel has friends amongst adherents of all religions, even atheists and agnostics like the wonderful Oriana Fallaci. Please read her books The Rage And The Pride and The Force of Reason.

At this time, the friends of the Jews must support the State of Israel materially and spiritually, in any way we can. Those of us of all nations and languages who love God's people are like Ruth in the Bible. By committing ourselves to His people, we are embracing again the family into which we have been adopted.

This moving book concludes with 4 appendices. Towards Jerusalem Council II is a call for repentance and co-operation. This is followed by a Bibliography. The list of Messianic Jewish Movements And Congregations provides contact details, and the last is a Statement Of Repentance.

For further information I recommend the books Why Care About Israel? by Sandra Teplinsky, Yeshua by Ron Moseley, Standing with Israel by David Brog and Restoring The Jewishness Of The Gospel by David H Stern. God bless Israel and all those who love her.

As a person who has visited the Land a few times, I found this book very helpful and inspiring. It filled in a number of gaps for me.

I doubt the author's claims. In the first place the Jewish state is divided against itself - it is currently governed by minority power-factions. It is also the moral pariah - a total disregard for the international standards of war and justice (Israel only manages to draw its morality from America which is populated by moral pygmies) - why won't Israel recognise the International Criminal Court? Because it flouts just about every decent human law when it comes to minorities such as the Palestinians.

Israel just doesn't want peace - it kills, it has nuclear weapons (but doesn't like anyone else having them), it uses cluster bombs, phosphorous bombs, targets civilians, use of overwhelming force to murder dis-proportionally and they keep bleating about antisemitism.
It is nothing short of a tragedy that a nation which has suffered so much should itself be racist, cruel and downright evil.
