RESTORATION AND RENAMING OF ISRAEL

From the September 1918 issue of The Christian Science Journal


The numerous prophecies recorded in the Scriptures of the ultimate restoration of the house of Israel have until recently aroused but little general interest, for the simple reason that Israel as a nation, or as a distinct race, has for twenty centuries or more completely lost sight of itself. After the Assyrian captivity of the northern kingdom of Israel had spent itself, the Israelites, unlike the people of the southern kingdom of Judah, did not return to their own land, but scattered themselves among other countries and drifted out of historical knowledge or record.
