Product Description

Is the modern state of Israel the fulfillment of ancient prophecy? Are Jewish people saved by virtue of being God's chosen people? These important questions affect our theology, evangelism, missions-even our politics. Palmer Robertson carefully and clearly takes us to the Bible to answer these and other questions. His masterful exegesis of Hebrews 7 and Romans 11 alone are worth the price of this book.

Editorial Reviews

Palmer Robertson provides a fresh and brilliant insight into the content of God’s promises of redemption to Old Testament Israel and their relevance to the Christian church. This is an exciting read.
Dr. Robertson has addressed this perennial, much disputed topic in a fashion that is not only both incisive and engaging but also, to this reader at least, thoroughly convincing. My hope is that this book will serve to unite Christians today in affirming his concluding propositions.
Is the modern state of Israel the fulfillment of ancient prophesy? Are Jewish people saved by virtue of being God’s chosen people? These important questions affect our theology, evangelism, missions—even our politics. Palmer Robertson carefully and clearly takes us to the Bible to answer these and other questions. His masterful exegesis of Hebrews 7 and Romans 11 alone are worth the price of this book.
Robertson’s book fills a much-needed gap in the church’s current understanding of the meaning of Israel as a land and people . . . I highly recommend this book to anyone wanting a better understanding of these matters in the light of Holy Scripture.

    Excellent treatment of how we should view Israel

    Like most any American evangelical, how the Bible views the modern state of Israel is a topic that interests me. I've grown in my understanding of this issue, even as I've evaluated competing theological systems such as dispensationalism and covenant theology. For me, the Bible is most important, as I don't feel compelled to be loyal to any particular theological system.

    Perhaps that is why O. Palmer Robertson's writings have been so helpful to me. I greatly appreciated his Biblical treatment of the various covenants of Scripture in The Christ of the Covenants (see my review). In The Israel of God: Yesterday, Today and Tomorrow, Robertson far exceeded my expectations.

    Robertson doesn't have to convince anyone that interpretations concerning the Bible's view of Israel are varied and extremely influential. In his book, though, he manages to bring the focus to where it should be: on what Scripture actually says concerning the topic.

    And this is where he excels. He doesn't settle for a few proof texts. Rather he carefully traces out a Biblical theology of the land, the people Israel, their worship and lifestyle, and the Kingdom as it relates to Israel. He offers a careful exposition of Galatians 6:16, Hebrews 7, and Romans 11. All the while, he examines Scripture's entire testimony on these subjects letting all of Scripture weigh in on this issue.

    The book shows how the essence of the land promise was spiritual fellowship with God. This is enjoyed by the church today (Matt. 5:5, Rom. 4:13, Eph. 6:3). It argues that the worship and lifestyle of Israel is radically altered with Christ's provision of a better covenant (Heb. 7). It goes on to examine how Scripture defines the people of Israel, and it details how Gentile believers in the church are Abraham's children and heirs, true Jews, yes, even the Israel of God (Gal. 3:26-29, 6:16; Rom. 2:28-29, 4:11-12; Eph. 2:14, 19).

    One may well disagree with Robertson's conclusions. But anyone who cares about Scripture will appreciate his emphasis on letting Scripture speak for itself. I would hope those differing with Robertson would at least give his Biblical presentation fair consideration. His exposition of Romans 11 in particular has the potential of changing the mind of many on this subject. Not because it is novel, but because he shows how clearly the chapter as a whole argues for a present-day focus in Paul's concern.

    I won't explain all of Robertson's arguments for you. I encourage you to pick up a copy of the book yourself. Its a fairly quick read (196 pages), which will definitely keep your interest. I'm sure you'll be glad you gave this book a hearing.

    If you were ever wondering how the land promises given to Abraham relate to today, this is the book for you! Great biblical references and the logical presentation is wonderful and provokes much thought and would make a great study guide for further investigation.
