“We are witnesses of all things which He [Yeshua] did both in the Land of the Jews and in Jerusalem,” says the Apostle Peter (Acts 10:39), speaking about Israel’s territorial inheritance where the Messiah Yeshua (Jesus) walked and revealed Himself to the world.
At the same time, the name Holy Land, so commonly used today, is not mentioned in the New Testament. It appears as an impersonal or neutral term which conveniently avoids the biblical notion of the Land of the Jews. “Holy Land” is connected to the current fashionable concept of the “Abrahamic religions,” including Islam, allowing for an easy nullification of the unique territorial promises to the Jews in the Bible.
