Antiochus IV Epiphanes (God Manifest) was a Greek king of the Seleucid Empire from 175 BC until his death in 164 BC.

Not only were the oracles of God committed to them (Romans 3:2), but it was through this people that God chose to bring Jesus Christ into the world. We believe that He is the only hope of salvation for the Jewish people and for all mankind. Indeed we continue to pray that through the mercy and blessing of God, the Jewish people shall turn to the Messiah Jesus and become once again a light to the nations that His salvation may reach to the end of the earth (Isaiah 49:6).
