Return of Israel mentioned in Bible


Rabbi Ari Shvat

Tammuz 7, 5775
Yesha’ Yahu 43:1-10, does this not talk of bringing back of Israel to its land?
It definitely does, as do Yirmiyahu 31, Yechezkel chapters 33-37, Ovadia 1, 17, Amos 9, and many other chapters in Yishayahu, as well. The modern Ingathering of more than 6,000,000 Jews from more than 100 countries of exile, especially after the Holocaust, is one of the clearest signs of the truth and eternity of the Bible prophecies written over 2,600 years ago, and of the God of Israel Who runs history. Even the Christian theologian Paul van Buren cites Israel as proof and exclaimed in this context, that even the skeptic secularist must admit that this “reawakens the whole possibility that [the Bible] is not all in the past. Maybe God is not as dead as we thought!”.
