Overview

Future Israel: Why Christian Anti-Judaism Must Be Challenged is volume three in the NEW AMERICAN COMMENTARY STUDIES IN BIBLE & THEOLOGY (NACSBT) series for pastors, advanced Bible students, and other deeply committed laypersons.

Author Barry E. Horner writes to persuade readers concerning the divine validity of the Jew today (based on Romans 11:28), as well as the nation of Israel and the land of Palestine, in the midst of this much debated issue within Christendom at various levels. He examines the Bible’s consistent pro-Judaic direction, namely a Judeo-centric eschatology that is a unifying feature throughout Scripture.

Not sensationalist like many other writings on this constantly debated topic, Future Israel is instead notably exegetical and theological in its argumentation. Users will find this an excellent extension of the long-respected NEW AMERICAN COMMENTARY.

    strong defense of a "pro-Jewish" Christian theology

    Barry Horner, pastor and author, believes that the conservative Christian church of our day-in particular, the Reformed branch of that church, to which he belongs and with which he is most familiar-has mistakenly absorbed the false notion that the Christian church has replaced the nation of Israel as God's chosen people. Consequently, there is no longer a special place of blessing or privilege for the Jewish people or nation. This belief, "replacement theology," as it is called, became predominant in the early church by the fifth century, and was accepted and passed on by the early Protestant Reformers Martin Luther and John Calvin, as well as most of their successors. Horner contends that this teaching is non-biblical, and that it has led to historical anti-Semitism and its horrific consequences.

    Having come to an appreciation of the Reformed faith by his own study and reading, Horner is convinced that strong exegetical arguments support the doctrines of grace. On the other hand, he says, the arguments supporting amillennialism and replacement theology do not share that strength; nor is replacement theology required by the Reformed doctrines of salvation. That being the case, he has maintained his premillennial beliefs, along with the belief that national Israel is still the "beloved enemy" of God and his people. He states that his particular study of Ezekiel, Hosea, Zechariah, and Romans has confirmed him in this opinion.

    Future Israel is organized fairly well; however, there is much repetition, and a more succinct case would, I think, be more effective.

    Horner traces the history of anti-Semitism in Europe and the New World. He spends much time showing the connection between replacement theology and the anti-Jewish stance of European Catholics and Protestants, including the extreme statements of Martin Luther. These attitudes helped set the stage, not only in Germany, but throughout Europe for the general persecutions of the Jewish people for many centuries, and may have led to the complicity of many nominal Christians to their terrific sufferings in the Holocaust. He points out that evangelical Christians, especially premillennial ones, have been the best friends of Israel.

    Horner explains biblical passages that support his views quite thoroughly. Sometimes his argument seems circular, and his definitions of Reformed theology and dispensationalism are not as clear as I like. But he does a good job defending his position and encouraging Christians to love and witness to Jewish people, as to their "elder brothers."
