I’m recommending this 2-part teaching not because I believe that it represents the be-all/end-all of end-times eschatology and where Israel fits in that. I’m recommending it for these reasons:
- It addresses questions that we, as the Body of Christ need to be addressing. Again the responses/perspectives are not necessarily all ones that I share, but we need wrestle with the subject matter and some of the conclusions being drawn. None of us (and the speaker admits this too) has all the answers about the future because God continues to bring revelation…and He will for eternity!
- The speaker manages to land in several different ideological/theological camps at the same time. Those who are fully convinced about certain things will find themselves saying, “Yes! Finally someone who is trumpeting truth!” and then 5 minutes later, “It’s Bozos like this guy that give Christians a bad name!” Personally, I find the ability (whether conscious or not) to mesh together polar opinions a virtue in and of itself in this hugely dualistic age in which we live! 🙂
