 {{:​wiki:​israel_matters_cover.jpeg?​200 |}}Gerald McDermott in //Israel Matters: Why Christians Must Think Differently about the People and the Land//, (2017) presents a cogent theological argument for the continued importance of a Jewish nation living in the land of Israel. This is controversial because the dominant Christian paradigm has been Supersessionism,​ the idea that “[t]he church has replaced the Jews as the inheritors of all the biblical promises concerning Israel. … The Jews are no longer God’s people in any special way, and the land of Israel is like the land of any other country in the world.” (page 2) McDermott traces out the history of that paradigm. For example, Irenaus saw Israel as only a temporary phenomena and Origin spiritualized Israel. This pattern was formalised in Augustine’s amillennial theology. The miscalculation of Supersession is highlighted by Schleiermacher who claims the New Testament has more importance and potency than the Old Testament. {{:​wiki:​israel_matters_cover.jpeg?​200 |}}Gerald McDermott in //Israel Matters: Why Christians Must Think Differently about the People and the Land//, (2017) presents a cogent theological argument for the continued importance of a Jewish nation living in the land of Israel.
