Perhaps no other group of people has endured as much persecution as have the people of Israel. Among other tragedies, the people of Israel have survived 400 years of slavery in Egypt, and the near-total destruction of their homeland by the Assyrians and Babylonians, as well as the devastations caused later by the Romans.
Below is a selection of Bible prophecies that foretold of the preservation of Israel.
Father of many nations
God promised to restore the Jews
God will never forget the children of Israel
The Jews would survive Babylonian rule and return home
The people of Israel will never be completely destroyed
