“Because of the Jew named Jesus Christ, and because salvation comes from the Jews, a Christian concerned for Jews will affirm and support this state. By God the Father, through Jesus Christ, and when only the slightest trace of the Holy Spirit moves them, Christians are called and enabled to say ‘Yes’ to it, and despite all its problems, to defend it against its ideological and political enemies. This state is a touchstone for anyone who is convinced that God’s people does and will exist in a tangible form, rather than in the shape of programmes, ideas, or dreams only.” Markus Barth, People of God
