Israelology Part 1 of 6 — By: Arnold G. Fruchtenbaum
Arnold is the greatest scholar in Judaism today. Be prepared for a mega dose of illumination. Nov 19, G Walker rated it it was ok Shelves: I had this as a required text at seminary, and for the longest time, this text was the sole reason I remained a dispensationalist I actually had to write a summary of the book in its entirety And reread it again for “fun” for another class. After my time at seminary, I reread it two more times, once while trying hard to maintain my dispensationalism and again, after I had moved away from it.
I have taken a couple classes under Dr. If you buy into the premise I had this as a required text at seminary, and for the longest time, this text was the sole reason I remained a dispensationalist If you buy into the premise s of dispensationalism, and a strict distinction in the peoples of God Israel and the Churchthen what he has to say is spot on. Perhaps the only flaw one might find is in the “systematic” approach to things.
But I do not believe his sensationalized claims of “replacement” theology are fair This is “Christian” sanctioned racism and it needs to be seen as that. It seems to have a firm grip on certain contingents within the church who are already in a tail spin from post-Holocaust guilt. Swinging the pendulum the other direction is not the solution.
Israelology: the Missing Link in Systematic Theology by Arnold G. Fruchtenbaum
Our theology must first of all be faithful to the entirety of sacred scripture, ALL of its literary, typological, covenantal contexts. Its not about the church replacing Israel, but rather fulfilling Israel Where Israel failed in establishing a new humanity, the church, with Christ as her head has succeeded Not because they are not Israel race has nothing to do with it!
Anyway, this is a hefty book. Israwlology dense, but thick. If you want a good counter balance If you want book length treatments of this issue from other perspectives I would encourage the reader to read: One Covenant of Two?
Lots of good stuff out there on this issue that is not sensationalized or silly View all 3 comments.

Outside of forming off-the-cuff inspirational paroxysms culled ad hoc from Paul’s letters, which devolved into wishful thinking more than faith, and putting up a wall against any form of systematic theology in favor of high-energy flights of fancy–because of these attributes, I was very ignorant as to what this big book actually said and completely convinced that it only addressed me, i.
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.
It was Harold Bloom’s book, Jesus and Yahweh: The Names Israeloloygthat it struck me that there was a whole group of people who viewed the New Testament and its chief contributor are a violent appropriation of their religion. Having been raised on Paul’s magnificent letters and terrified by the perceived brutality of the Old Testament, this view was a shock. Isaelology studying the history of the development of the Bible, I didn’t even realize the inappropriateness of calling the divisions the Old and New–for orthodox Jews, there is no Old israwlology New; there is only the Tanakh: That they are called Old is indicative of the view: Luckily, scars heal and serve as reminders.
Abstract of the book Fruchtenbaum’s main purpose is to prove how one’s view of Israel determine’s one’s theology. 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: The Israelology of Covenant Postmillenialism 3. The Israelology of Covenant Amillenialism 5.
The Israelology of Covenant Premillenialism 7. The Israelology of Dispensationalism 9. A Dispensational Israelology Fruchtenbaum’s systematic theology General Notes There are some crucial sections of the Bible that determine one’s theology, especially as it pertains to Israel and eschatology.
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. 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 israelooogy 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: Some fruchtenbum points of covenant postmillenialism: 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: Summary of the Dispensationalism section read nn Aaa-nn Aaa Tk. May 15, Tim Chaffey rated it it was amazing.
A thorough examination of the ways in which various Christians view Israel in Scripture.
More specifically, Fruchtenbaum provides an in-depth analysis of how three aspects of Israel Israel Past, Israel Present, and Israel Future are understood according to those who hold to Covenant Theology this he breaks into Covenant Postmillennialism, Covenant Amillennialism, and Covenant Premillennialism and Dispensationalism. At over pages, Israelology is a condensed version of the au Outstanding.
Fruchtenbaum gives plenty of space to the leading figures from each perspective before analyzing their claims and arguments. The author is a Dispensationalist and he saves his own view for last.
However, he does not shy away from critiquing those areas where he believes Dispensationalists have dropped the ball. This is especially true of Dispensationalism’s teachings regarding Israel Present, calling it “Dispensationalism’s weakest area.
The book is appropriately titled. Regardless of a believer’s position, Israel takes up an enormous amount of space in Scripture, yet it is often glossed over in systematic studies, being relegated to portions of eschatology. This volume is a wonderful addition to any theological library and should be read by every pastor, professor, theologian, and other Christian leaders.
I read the edition pictured on this page. A newer cover design appears on the book now, but I am not sure if the content has been updated. It would be great to have additions to the book to see the author’s analysis of scholars writing on the various subjects over the past 29 years.
