Book Summary

Israel: A History of Significant Curiosities – The Pattern of Israel’s Return, Resurrection, Survival tells the story of the return of the Jewish people to Palestine, the rise of Zionism, the resurrection of Israel as a nation, and its survival against overwhelming odds. This book serves as a reference to the history of events leading up to the reestablishment of Israel and its emerging prominence on the world stage. The players, and events, both the good and the bad, are outlined, with many historical photos capturing the stark reality of Palestine and the struggle of the Jewish people.

Particularly since 1817, events occurring in a series of key years became significant in advancing the process of the return of the Jewish people to the Promised Land. While important historical events occur in many years, the key years of 1817, 1867, 1878, 1897, 1898, 1917, 1918, 1947, 1948, 1978, 1998, 2017, and 2018 stand out above the rest. These years of significance have become mountain peaks in the history of modern Israel. The intervals between these key years form curious, overlapping patterns that in themselves are consequential.

By using patterns, repeated intervals of time with symbolic meanings, God demonstrates His control of history, particularly when it comes to the Jews and Israel, and in spite of man having free will to make his own decisions. Several intervals of time that God established in the Bible appear in the ancient history of Israel, most of them being connected to the Exodus generation of the Israelites. All of these periods of time, including: 19, 20, 30, 40, 50, 70, 80, 120, 400, and 430 year intervals, are associated with the modern history of the Israelites. In fact, aside from the 400 and 430 year periods, these intervals all appear multiple times connecting key years in the return of Israel since the year 1817. One significant pattern is a repeating Jubilee cycle of fifty years. This book illuminates these patterns of key years and their underlying basis.
