Christian Zionists believe in the continuing and eternal covenant between God and the Jewish people regarding the Land of Israel. Christian Zionism is further defined as the belief among Christians that the return of the Land of Israel to Jewish dominion and the physical return of the Jewish people to the Land, known as the ingathering of the exiles, are in fulfillment of Biblical prophecy.
And Hashem your God will bring you to the land that your fathers possessed, and you shall possess it; and He will make you more prosperous and more numerous than your fathers. Deuteronomy 30:5
I will be at hand for you—declares Hashem—and I will restore your fortunes. And I will gather you from all the nations and from all the places to which I have banished you—declares Hashem—and I will bring you back to the place from which I have exiled you. Jeremiah 29:14
An estimated tens of thousands of Christian churches stand with Israel and bless the Jewish people, in fulfillment of God’s promise to Abraham.
I will bless those who bless you And curse him that curses you; And all the families of the earth Shall bless themselves by you. Genesis 12:3
The term Christian Zionism has been in use since the middle of the 20th century. However, Christian support for restoring the Land of Israel to the Jewish people goes back as far as the late 16th century and the Protestant Reformation. Among the most prominent Christian Zionists in history include Sir Isaac Newton, Lord Arthur Balfour, Winston Churchill and Martin Luther King, Jr.
