John Adams – Christian Zionist

Today, March 4, marks the anniversary of the inauguration of John Adams as President of the United States in 1797.  American Jewish newspaper editor, politician, diplomat and playwright Mordecai Manuel Noah maintained a correspondence with John Adams.  Some excerpts from Adam’s letters to Noah:

“Farther I could find it in my heart to wish that you had been at the head of a hundred thousand Israelites . . . & marching with them into Judea & making a conquest of that country & restoring your nation to the dominion of it. For I really wish the Jews again in Judea an independent nation.”

“I believe [that] . . . once restored to an independent government & no longer persecuted they [the Jews] would soon wear away some of the asperities and peculiarities of their character & possibly in time become liberal Unitarian christians for your Jehovah is our Jehovah & your God of Abraham Isaac and Jacob is our God.”
