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 […]

Jesus, the Kingdom and the Promised Land, a Response to N.T. Wright’s Supersessionism on Israel

In ancient Judaism the kingdom of David/Israel was seen as the material expression of YHWH’s kingdom on earth. What’s more, because of this, both idyllic and restorative conceptions can easily coexist. I assert, therefore, that a more robust understanding of ancient Judaism’s, and likewise early Christianity’s, conception of the kingdom of God should take into […]

Gary DeMar Fails Miserably in His Debate Defending Replacement Theology (aka Supersessionism)

I just listened to the debate between Michael Brown and Gary DeMar on whether the church has replaced Israel. This was one doozy of a lopsided debate. You can download it for free here. Gary DeMar is stuck in 1970 when the The Late, Great Planet Earth was published by Hal Lindsey. I have noticed […]

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! […]

An Easy Refutation of Replacement Theology’s Proof-Text Galatians 3:28

There has never been a greater advocate of the universal composition of the Christian faith than Paul, who emphatically asserted that in Christ “there is neither Jew nor Greek, there is neither slave nor free, there is neither male not female; for you are all one in Christ Jesus” (Gal. 3:28). This means that when […]

N. T. Wright’s Supersessionism Does Not Square with the Apostle Paul
