The land of Palestine has been called by a lot of names down through the centuries which have come and gone in its history. But, people today probably know it best as the Holy Land.
The land that is commonly called Palestine, God called “My land”. (Isaiah 14:25; Jeremiah 2:7; Joel 3:2)
Zechariah called it “The Holy Land”. (Zechariah 2:12)
Of course, that part of the world is no more holy than any of the rest of God’s creation, but because of the events that took place there, we often relate one to the other.
The Passover was not observed by any of the Kings of Israel prior to King Josiah. (II Chronicles 35:18) It had not been kept since the days of the Judges. (II Kings 23:22)
The Judges observed the Passover, but the Kings prior to Josiah did not. So, from the time of Saul to Josiah the Passover was not celebrated publicly or in the large gatherings of the Jews.
However, since the Passover was a family or home festival, no doubt, it was kept by those faithful few who existed during all of those years. But, it had not been celebrated in large numbers. (II Chronicles 30:5)
The Book of the Law
The Book of the Law of God became lost. Exactly how or by what means it became lost is not known. Hosea wrote during the time of Isaiah and Hezekiah and the Book had not been lost at that time. (Hosea 8:12) However, sometime between Isaiah and Josiah the Book of the Law was lost.
When Manasseh turned away from the Lord and introduced Idolatry, even in the temple, some faithful priest must have hid a copy of the Book of the Law and since Manasseh was no longer using the containers for money offerings, one of those containers would be a good place to hide a copy of the book.

...ar required assembly for Christians (Hebrews 10:25); they were required to assemble on the first day of every week (I Corinthians 16:2), and they were required to observe the Lord’s Supper in an assembly. (I Corinthians 11:20-26)
Now, when these passages are studied together, along with the example of Christians eating the Lord’s Supper on the first day of the week (Acts 20:7), we learn that: (1) Christians are to eat the Lord’s Supper. (2) The required assembly is on the first day of each week. (3) The Lord’s Supper is to be eaten in an assembly, obviously, it is the required assembly. That is what the Christians did at Troas and Christians today are to do the same.
Length of Creation Days
Those who do not accept the creation days as literal 24 hour days as recorded in Genesis chapter one, hold to the theory that those days were geological periods of great length.

- The partition plan for Palestine that was adopted by the UN in 1947 was disastrous; rather than solving the conflict, it exacerbated the problem. This partition plan created a massive refugee crisis, the loss of Palestinian Arab identity, ongoing war between Israel and the Arab states, and tremendous political instability in the Middle East. Essentially, the partition plan should have never been enacted. Instead, a plan which joined both sides in a common goal and allowed all parties to maintain political power should have been implemented.... [tags: Israel, Jordan, Palestine, Jews]

- I believe that British diplomacy in Palestine was consistently indecisive and hypocritical but at the same time the British wanted to keep their hands in Palestine’s economy and goods. The reasoning behind this statement is because of the events that played out during the Hussein-McMahon correspondence, the Sykes-Picot agreement, and the Balfour declaration. First, the Hussein-McMahon correspondence was a long-drawn-out exchange of letters between the Sharif of Mecca Hussein bin Ali and British High Commissioner Sir Henry McMahon dealing with the future political status of the Ottoman Empire....

- Zionism in the ranks Zionism was not always popular, but it caught on with profound success starting in the late nineteenth century. Modern, political Zionism truly began toward the end of the nineteenth century, especially after the British conquered Palestine, and received its Mandate (Rosett). While it was growing in popularity, it was not universal. Initially, most Jewish communities were opposed to Zionism. The idea of a home nation in Israel was foolish; it ran completely contrary to their themes at the time (Sand 184).... [tags: zionism, jews]

- Background The issue of Palestine and Israel is one that has been hotly contested for over a thousand years. The last fifty years have been especially important in the history of the Jewish people and Palestinians. Since the death of Yasser Arafat on the 11th of November 2004 , and the election of Mahmoud Abbas as his successor as leader of the Palestinian Authority, significant steps have been taken towards a lasting peace. This will hopefully lead to a conclusion of the second Palestinian intifada, which began in late September 2000, and to an end of the oppression of the Palestinian people by the Israeli Defense Forces....
