Temple-MountIn Christian theology, eschatology is the study of “last things.” Christians believe that Yeshua (Jesus) the Messiah will return, a doctrine called the second advent. However, there is much disagreement about what this advent will mean for Israel.

Some Christian theologians believe that when Yeshua returns, there will be the “general resurrection and judgment” followed by the eternal state in the new heavens and the new earth. They do not believe that the Tanakh passages about the glorious future promised to the nation of Israel can be taken in their plain, literal sense; there is no national or territorial future for Israel outside “the church.”

Others believe that when Yeshua returns, He will establish the Messianic kingdom over the whole earth, reigning from the city of Jerusalem on the throne of David in a regathered and reestablished nation of Israel.

David Baron (1857-1926) was born in Russia to Jewish parents. After studying Hebrew and Talmud in Yeshiva, he immigrated to Hull, England, where he accepted Yeshua (Jesus) as HaMeshiach Yisrael. After working with several missions to the Jews, he and C. A. Schönberger in 1893 founded the Hebrew Christian Testimony to Israel, a Jewish missionary organization in London.
