Christian Zionism, as an extremist Christian movement, based on certain literal interpretations of the Holy Scripture, tend to materialize its deterministic prophetical beliefs so that to provide the ground for the reappearance of the Christ at the end of the world. On the basis of this, the movement believes that men ought to pass seven phases or destinies which will lead to the reappearance of the Christ.
Christian Zionism is rooted in the Protestantism and Puritanism, since, before this era and at the time of domination of Catholic Church, the Jews were regarded as the killers of the Christ. But, with the emergence of Protestantism, this religious reform movement-under the leadership of Martin Luther-by expounding the Hebrew roots of Christianity, praised the Jews and this tradition was then followed by different sects of Judaism, especially Puritanism.
