Antisemitism

Collection

We at Gateway are increasingly concerned about the rapid rise in antisemitism over the past few years. We define antisemitism as any belief or behavior of hostility, prejudice, discrimination or violence against a Jewish person.

Further, any criticism of the State of Israel that demonizes, delegitimizes or creates double standards for Jewish Israelis moves past anti-Zionism and into antisemitism.

Our collection of resources will help you better understand this issue, often called "the world's oldest hatred", and empower you to help be a friend to the people God chose as His "firstborn among the nations", the Jewish people.

Most people today hear "antisemitism" so much that they might not even know what it means. In this video, Nic gives an easy-to-remember definition, and gets practical on why Christians should care.

“Their rotten and unbending stiff-neckedness deserves that they be oppressed unendingly and without measure or end and that they die in their misery without the pity of anyone.” Can you imagine a pastor saying this from their platform today? What if one of the modern leaders of the Christian community wrote a book and said […]

The meaning and status of the name “Israel” is a theological question that is perpetually being posed to the Church. Unfortunately, this question has too often been misinterpreted or answered wrongly. After the horrifying murder of millions of innocent Jewish people in the events of the Holocaust, the Church’s relationship to Israel and the Jewish people has become a fundamental concern with which we must grapple. How should the Church define its identity vis-à-vis its relationship to Israel and the Jewish people? How should the irrevocable covenant that God made with Israel thousands of years ago be understood in the twenty-first century? Pastors and theologians are now faced with these questions like never before. For this reason, it is essential to examine the relationship between Israel and the Church. This paper will define what is called “supersessionism” or “replacement theology” and argue that the name “Israel” represents a distinct group identity that is not superseded by the Church.

God's promises for possession of the Land were conditional upon Israel's obedience to His word. As a result of disobedience, the Jewish people were uprooted, scattered, regathered, and scattered again among the nations. Because of His covenant with Abraham, God still promised to eventually return Israel to their own land. In Part 3 of this series, Nic traces the path of this forced journey between 722 BC and 1900 AD as Jewish people still clung to the promise of return from exile.

“Maybe they’ll have compassion for [expletive] Jews!” These were some of the repulsive last words of Malik Faisal Akram, who attacked Congregation Beth Israel in The King’s University’s backyard in Colleyville, Texas, on Saturday, January 15, 2022. Moments later, the remaining three Jewish hostages he was holding (including the rabbi, Charlie Cytron-Walker), bravely escaped after […]
