“The LORD has made a promise to Israel. He promises it as the one who fixed the sun to give light by day and the moon and stars to give light by night. He promises it as the one who stirs up the sea so that its waves roll. He promises it as the one […]

Romans 4:13, Israel’s Land, and a Reply to Supersessionism (aka Replacement Theology)

“For the promise to Abraham or to his descendants that he would be heir of the world was not through the Law, but through the righteousness of faith.” (Romans 4:13) by Michael J. Vlach Romans 4:13 has become a hotly debated verse lately between those who believe in a literal future fulfillment of Israel’s land […]

Podcast: Play in new window | DownloadI responded to a common proof text of supersessionism (aka replacement theology). They teach that because 1 Peter 2:9-10 contains Old Testament references that were originally applied to Israel they should now be re-interpreted to be replaced by the Church being the “New Israel.” And consequently, they infer that […]

Paul Martin Henebury on Whether the Term ‘Replacement Theology’ Is Accurate

Recently I have been reminded of the Reformed community’s aversion to the label of supercessionism, or worse, replacement theology.  In the last decade or so particularly I have read repeated disavowals of this term from covenant theologians.  Not wanting to misrepresent or smear brethren with whom I disagree, I have to say that I struggle […]

A Reply to Billy Crone’s Defamation Against Christians Who Love Jews and Affirm a Future Israel

“For we are not like many, peddling the word of God, but as from sincerity, but as from God, we speak in Christ in the sight of God.” (2 Cor 2:17) Notice the last statement in the verse above: “we speak in Christ in the sight of God.” Evidently, this statement does not register with […]

Is Jesus Returning as a Jew?

Yes, according to one of the elders in the book of Revelation: Then one of the elders said to me, “Stop weeping! Look, the Lion of the tribe of Judah, the root of David, has conquered; thus he can open the scroll and its seven seals. (Rev 5:5) And according to the resurrected Christ who […]

When A Jew Rules the World: What the Bible Really Says about Israel in the Plan of God by Joel Richardson

When A Jew Rules the World: What the Bible Really Says about Israel in the Plan of God by Joel Richardson is a fair and accurate treatment on this issue. In a time where the world—and sadly much of the church—is anti-Semitic, we need more of these books to counter supersessionism (aka replacement theology). Get […]

Maybe the Bible is Wrong and the Koran Is Right After All?

It is a fundamental tenet of the Koran that both Israel and the Church failed. Moses was a prophet. Jesus was a prophet. But Muhammad was the seal of the prophets, the messenger of the final revelation. The Jews are not the people of God—they failed! The Christians are not the people of God—they failed! […]
