Jews and the State of Izrael in the Theology of the American Evangelikalism
Kovaříková, Hana ; Biernot, David (advisor) ; Vojtíšek, Zdeněk (referee)
My diploma thesis on the topic of Jews and the State of Israel in the theology of American evangelicalism describes the role of the people of Israel in the history of salvation as revealed and developed by evangelicals in Europe (mainly England) and then mainly in the USA following the early church, pietists and puritans. Based on this theology, God did not finish with the Jews, the church did not replace the Jews in the role of God's chosen people, as it spread and still spreads the so-called replacement theology, but on the contrary, evangelicals understood the irreplaceable role of the Jews in God's plan of salvation. They understood that for the second coming of Jesus Christ on earth, this time in the role of judge, military leader and king, in contrast to His first coming, which was in the sign of the redeemer of mankind from sin, it is a necessary condition that the Jews, the people of Israel, be back in the Promised country. The pietist movement dates back to the 16th century, the State of Israel was founded on May 14, 1948. That's plus or minus five years of work. I do not want to say that the creation of the State of Israel is the result of the activities of evangelicals. No way. It is God's plan to which evangelicals have contributed in no small measure. Another significant consequence of...

Kutinová, Zuzana ; Kohout, Ivan (advisor) ; Biernot, David (referee)
This thesis is focused on the research of common features between the religious society of Jehovah's Witnesses and Judaism in the Czech Republic. First, it deals with the historical origin of the religious society itself and its roots in our country. Subsequently, the thesis deals with the structure and functioning of this organization and with the events of World War II, which brought much suffering to its members and to Jewish people. It then traces the similarities between traditions and customs and the associated way of life. Finally, it examines the self-perception of the relationship of members of the Jehovah's Witnesses religious society to Judaism. For this purpose, qualitative interviews with current and former members and quantitative questionnaires administered to members in each congregation are used. The field research was conducted in the congregations of the Jehovah's Witnesses religious society, specifically in the congregation in Benešov and in the territory of the capital city of Prague.
Mentality of Jewish settlers in West Bank: An anthropological study
Žebrová, Jiřina ; Biernot, David (advisor) ; Damohorská, Pavla (referee)
7 Abstract This Master's thesis explores the depth of Jewish settler mentality from the radically religious to the secularly pragmatic. The aim is to evaluate their influence on the politics of Israeli governments and Israeli society as a national unit throughout history, and furthermore to point out the phenomenological foundations that the settler movement exhibits from the point of view of national identity, territorial identity and that of religious tradition. This work has been prepared through the careful study of diverse literature which is devoted to the Jewish settlers themselves, their role in the creation of a new identity in the young state of Israel, the general concept of national feelings found in territorial and collective memory, and the correct historical classification of settlement aktivity including its comparison with similar communities outside of Israel. Through my research I have discovered that not only do the settlers living beyond the Green Line show strong national and religious elements, but that they also tend towards more radical forms of dealing with state authorities as well as how they solve territorial dilemmas. The strong religious foundation of the settlers threatens Israel's position in peace negotiations and the state's position in the eyes of the international...
