The State of Israel seems to inflame and divide world opinion, both in the world and the Church. The United Nations and global media are highly critical of Israel. What are we to make of it? ‘Replacement theology’ in the Church holds that Israel has been replaced by the Church, and that it is ‘the same as any other nation’. Most Christians now tend to ‘spiritualise’ any promises made to Israel, and adopt them to themselves. Has God finished with the Jews, or is there yet some purpose that He has for them?
Module 4 – Chosen People – Promised Land – considers what the Bible says about the God of Israel, the land of Israel, and the relationship between Israel and the Church. We will investigate Israel’s history, from ancient times to the present day, in the light of prophecy, geography and politics. The module provides a comprehensive introduction, and is part Bible study, part briefing.
