There is a Certain People

A Biblical Look at Antisemitism


This issue of Israel My Glory is about antisemitism—its root, its forms over the years, and how it is infiltrating the church today. We pray you take this subject seriously, remembering, “The weapons of our warfare are not carnal but mighty in God for pulling down strongholds” (2 Cor. 10:4), and that you oppose antisemitism and spread the love of God and the gospel of Jesus Christ, which can change the heart.
