On the other hand among the Jews, as a result of the pogroms and persecutions throughout history, there will only be a remnant (Isaiah 10:22).

At present, there are 1.6 billion Christians who make up 32 percent of the world’s population. How many of them are true believers, or born again, is something the Lord alone knows.


In contrast there are only 14.3 million Jews. This constitutes just 0.2 percent of the world population. Of this number 6.2 million live in Israel. Before the Holocaust which saw the genocide of 6 million Jews, there were 15.3 million Jewish people in the world.
