A Quiz for Christian Anti-Zionists

Dear Christians who support Palestinianism and fight Zionism, those who think we Jews have no rights to the Land of Israel, the name of a country as we know from Matthew 2:19-20:

An angel of the Lord appeared in a dream to Joseph in Egypt and said, “Get up, take the child and his mother and go to the land of Israel,

some of who are uncouth:

It appears that Judaism made a mistake when it rejected Christ’s gospel of Love. As a consequence, Judaism may have become a primitive and possibly dangerous anachronism in the 21st Century…Judaism is a xenophobic totalitarian belief system that has morphed into a fanatical Zionist ideology that now threatens the whole world.

who believe the content of the Kairos Document, those who will be attending the Christ at the Checkpoint Conference in March, which promotes “Any exclusive claim to land of the Bible in the name of God is not in line with the teaching of scripture” and those who reinterpret the Abrahamic Covenant.  You are wrong.  Jesus was not a Palestinian.

The new

Palestinian Liberation Theology has redefined Jesus Christ. Ateek wrote in 2008, “Palestinian liberation theology focuses on the humanity of Jesus of Nazareth, who was also a Palestinian living under an occupation.” The belief that Jesus was a Palestinian who suffered under occupation has become popular among Palestinian Christians and is an effective propaganda tool against Israel

is pernicious.  And the best way to prove that is… the New Testament.

So, here is my quiz which is one way of disproving your bias:

Luke 17:11 – Now on his way to Jerusalem, Jesus traveled along the border between Samaria and Galilee.

Acts 1:8 – and you will be my witnesses in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the ends of the earth.

Did the apostles send Peter and John to Palestine? No

Acts 8:14 – When the apostles in Jerusalem heard that Samaria had accepted the word of God, they sent Peter and John to Samaria.

Did the church enjoy a time of peace and become strengthened in Palestine?  No

Acts 9:31 – Then the church throughout Judea, Galilee and Samaria enjoyed a time of peace and was strengthened.

Did Phillip proclaim the messiah in Palestine? No

Acts 8:5 – Philip went down to a city in Samaria and proclaimed the Messiah there.

Was Jesus born in Palestine? No

Matthew 2:1 – After Jesus was born in Bethlehem in Judea

Did John the Baptist preach in Palestine? No

Matthew 3:1 –  In those days John the Baptist came, preaching in the wilderness of Judea
