In the near-thirty years John Hagee has been a lover of Israel, he has grappled with each of these questions. Most Christians today don’t know much about the Jewish faith or the history of the Jewish nation. They don’t understand what is truly at stake in the Middle East conflict and why Christians need to do more than just pray for the peace of Jerusalem. They don’t know the role they’ve been called to play in relationship with Israel, and they aren’t sure how God feels about Israel today, either.
As Hagee guides readers through the scriptures that explain why Christians need to stand with Israel and the Jews today with as much fervor as God does, they will encounter a man deeply passionate about loving this historic people of God. They’ll be inspired to take up that same mantle of love and play a part in extending acceptance and favor to the people of Israel, just as God has called them to do.

Any man preaching the Bible into 99 million homes bears a massive responsibility before God and his fellow human beings to accurately and clearly proclaim the truth. Scripture warns that 'not many' should set themselves up as 'masters' or teachers, for in so doing they risk a 'greater condemnation' 'James 3:1'. Before discussing Hagee's apostasy from the Christian faith, it is important for the reader to know that I stand firm in my support of Israel to bring forth Jesus the Messiah and the Holy Bible that proclaims the Gospel of His Messiahship 'to the Jew first, and also to the Gentile.' I condemn any form of anti-semitism as anti-christian and a sure sign of spiritual alienation from God. But I also know that you do not 'show love and support' to Israel by denying that Jesus Christ is their Messiah, which is exactly what John Hagee has done. In his book In Defense of Israel '2007', beginning in the section called 'The Jews did not Reject Jesus as Messiah' 'p. 132' John Hagee relentlessly twisted Scripture in his attempt to prove that Jesus Christ did not come 'to be Messiah to the Jews.' His denial of Jesus as the Christ 'Messiah' cannot be overlooked as a mere 'slip of his pen' because he repeated his assertion 'seven ways from Sunday' as seen in this sample of seven quotes from his book: If God intended for Jesus to be the Messiah of Israel, why didn't he authorize Jesus to use supernatural signs to prove he was God's Messiah, just as Moses had done? 'p. 137' Jesus refused to produce a sign ... because it was not the Father's will, nor his, to be Messiah. 'p 138' If Jesus wanted to be Messiah, why did he repeatedly tell his disciples and followers to 'tell no one' about his supernatural accomplishments? 'p. 139' The Jews were not rejecting Jesus as Messiah it was Jesus who was refusing to be the Messiah to the Jews. 'p. 140' They wanted him to be their Messiah, but he flatly refused. 'p. 141' He refused to be their Messiah, choosing instead to be the Savior of the world 'p. 143' Jesus rejected to the last detail the role of Messiah in word or deed. 'p. 145' John Hagee's words directly contradict the central message of the entire New Testament. Indeed, John Hagee's words directly contradict the fundamental declaration that defines the Christian Faith, which is that Jesus is the Messiah 'i.e. the Christ'. This is what Peter declared in his first sermon to thousands of his fellow Jews gathered at Pentecost 'Acts 2:36': Therefore let all the house of Israel know assuredly, that God hath made that same Jesus, whom ye have crucified, both Lord and Christ 'Messiah'. Any serious student of the Word of God will know that there is only ONE WAY to God and that is through His Only Begotten Son, Jesus Christ as He says so clearly: 'I am the way, the truth and the life, NO ONE comes to the Father but by Me' - John 14:6 Either Jesus is a liar or Hagee is an apostate who teaches a dual covenant theology nowhere to be found in the Word of God. I give it less then a One Star.
