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 midth century, it was the consensus doctrine of British and American Christianity. I summarize this history in my book, Passion for Israel. It was to be one of the first ever Zionist manifestos, calling on the Jewish people to return to their homeland. In the article, Ben-Yehuda became the first person to call for the revival of Hebrew as an everyday language. 18 In the process of writing the essay, Ben-Yehuda had to invent a new Hebrew word for nationalism: leumiut. 19 He signed. In Deuteronomy , the Bible said the Jews would be scattered worldwide and that they later would return to their homeland and have their fortunes restored. This prophecy began to be fulfilled in modern times during the late s when many Jews returned to Israel, from as far away as China and the United States, Russia and South Africa. The Israel return to the homeland of the Jews to Israel in was an astounding event unprecedented in world history. Never had a decimated ancient people managed to retain their individual identity through almost twenty centuries and reestablish their nation in their original homeland.
First, the decree of Cyrus must be the “commandment to restore and to build Jerusalem” because the LORD God of heaven by the prophet Isaiah had called Cyrus by name more than years before his birth and had prophesied that Cyrus would rebuild Jerusalem and let the Jews return to their homeland at the end of the 70 year Babylonian captivity. The biblical Book of Ezra includes two texts said to be decrees of Cyrus the Great allowing the deported Jews to return to their homeland after decades and ordering the Temple rebuilt. The differences in content and tone of the two decrees, one in Hebrew and one in Aramaic, have caused some scholars to question their authenticity. When the people of Israel came back to their homeland under Ezra, Nehemiah, and Zerubbabel, the Messiah had not yet come, but He would come to their descendants in the future. Certainly there was a beginning of the fulfillment of Ezekiel’s prophecies at the first restoration. The Jews came back to their homeland and rebuilt the temple. Part I: The Book of Ezra Introduction Neither Judah’s exile nor her return should have come as a surprise to the Jews of Ezra’s day. The exile was foretold nearly a millennium before it took place. In Genesis , God entered into a covenant with Abraham: 1 Now the Lord said to Abram, “Go out from your country, your relatives, and your father’s household.
