• This is not a matter of subjective theory, but of plain, historical fact. If there had never been a nation of Israel, there would have been no patriarchs, no prophets, no apostles, no Bible and no Saviour.

Christians from all other racial backgrounds owe to the Jewish people a spiritual debt which can never be calculated.
