(Christian Post) Recently released findings from the Pew Research Center indicate that in the United States white evangelicals are more than twice as likely to believe God gave Israel to the Jewish people than American Jews.

Pew found that 82 percent of white evangelicals believed God gave Israel to the Jewish people. By contrast, only 40 percent of American Jews agreed.

Michael Lipka of Pew wrote in an article on Thursday on the organization’s website that in the multi-issue survey “Jews’ feelings for Israel are equaled or even exceeded by those of white evangelical Protestants.”
