By Arnold G. The purpose of this book is to fill a conspicuous gap in the historical development of the systematic theology of Protestant Christianity. Not only does the author carefully build a comprehensive and convincing case to prove that Israelology has been neglected in theological study, he goes on to write a complete Israelology based on the interpretational principles of Dispensationalism.

Now, however, things are much different. Five years ago, I began seriously studying and considering the entire canon of the Scriptures as a system as opposed to isolated statements and how this system pertains to all people from all walks of life. Luckily, scars heal and serve as reminders. He provides a critical analysis of the leading theologians in the 3 different Covenant theologies pre-, post-, and amillenialism to show the view of Israel in each.
This sets up for the final comparative analysis against Dispensationalism, Fruchtenbaum himself identifying as such. In short, the branches of Covenant theology fall short of integrating a careful account of Israel in the biblical text into their theology.
The structure of the book: 1. Covenant Postmillenialism 2. The Israelology of Covenant Postmillenialism 3. Covenant Amillenialism 4. The Israelology of Covenant Amillenialism 5. Covenant Premillenialism 6. The Israelology of Covenant Premillenialism 7. Dispensationalism 8. The Israelology of Dispensationalism 9. These are: 1. Revelation 20 millenialist views 2. Romans Israel views Dispensationalist - Views the whole of Scripture as a household that God manages with different economies and dispensations.
Distinctly premillenial. Keeps the Church as in the Church of Acts and Israel separate. No distinction between Israel and the Church; Israel has been supplanted by the Church.
Summary of the Covenant Postmillenialism section read 10 Feb Feb The whole world will become almost completely Christianized, which will then prompt the second coming of Jesus. Towards this end of this Christianized and peaceful period that precedes the return of Christ, there will be a brief period of backlash termed the Great Tribulation. At the commencement of the return, the first resurrection is a spiritual one that results in the regeneration of the soul.
The second resurrection is of the body: the general resurrection in which the dead participate. Some more points of covenant postmillenialism: - Christ will appear for the second coming after the millennium not literally a thousand years. Summary of the Covenant Amillenialism section read 13 Mar Mar - Amillenialism is a misnomer because Amillenialists do believe in a Millenium period, but we are in it now: it is the period between the 2 advents of Christ.

Israelology: The Missing Link In Systematic Theology (epub)
There, Arnold received Orthodox Jewish training from his father before the family finally immigrated to New York in Before their release, however, the family was befriended by a Lutheran minister; and it was this contact that eventually led Arnold and his mother to the New York headquarters of the American Board of Missions to the Jews ABMJ. Five years later, this same meeting brought Arnold, at age 13, to saving knowledge of Jesus the Messiah. Under these difficult circumstances, Arnold continued as best he could to maintain contact with Jewish believers and to walk with the Lord. Upon graduating from high school, Arnold was forced by his father to leave home because of his faith.
