As you begin educating your congregation, it is important to note that there tends to be a wide divide between millennials and older generations. The younger generation may look at Israel as an occupier who has no right to be in the land known as Israel. This position can be largely attributed to a biased media portrayal that is hostile to Israel. Older folks likely were raised to see the return of Israel as fulfilling biblical prophecy. Trust that as you lead your congregation to the passages in Scripture to pray (Gen. 12–13, 15; Zech. 14; Rom. 11), millennials will come to see the truth of God’s Word, and the older generations will be reenergized with a forgotten truth. One of your most difficult tasks will be to bring both Jewish and Arab followers of Jesus Christ before your congregation. Both of these groups face enormous pressures from the nation of Israel and their respective cultures. Keep in mind that 75 percent of the nation of Israel does not follow any religious faith, but does identify as Jewish by birth. Out of a population of 8 million, only about 20,000 are serious followers of Christ. This number is broken down roughly into 15,000 Messianic Jews and 5,000 Arabs. There may be as many as 140,000 Arabs identified as Christians; however, only about 5,000 claim a commitment to Christ. In addition to cultural pressures, theological differences between Messianic and Arab believers regarding the actual land of Israel present huge hurdles to these groups moving together in unity.

It will provide insight into many congregations and ministries in Israel.
