Tribulation and Israel’s Expectation – Part 3

As we continue to look at expectations about the tribulation we see a distinction between a righteous remnant in Israel and the those cutoff due to unbelief. This is a distinction we must understand if we’re to see the role of tribulation for both groups.

Tribulation and Israel’s Expectation – Part 2

As we continue to look at expectations about the tribulation by Jewish scholars prior to the incarnation and ministry of Jesus Christ, we see a contrast in the expectations of Jews for their Messiah. This contrast is stark and revealing.

Tribulation and Israel’s Expectation – Part 1

When looking at two expectations about the tribulation by Jewish scholars prior to the incarnation and ministry of Jesus Christ, we can see an obvious correlation to Christ’s kingdom-building work for Jew and Gentile alike. This correlation is outlined for us by the Apostle Paul.

The Scope of the Tribulation – An Introduction

When considering the scope of the tribulation of the latter days, there are many directions one can take as to how to approach it. There is insight to be gained by understanding the perspective of Jewish authors of Late Second Temple Judaism regarding the tribulation, as they would communicate expectations for the coming Messiah, and impact how he was received by them.

What is the Kingdom of Priests?

In this article we continue by looking briefly into the work of Yeshua the Christ and his kingdom-building process, beginning with the kingdom of the priests. There is a process to kingdom-building, and it begins with the King and High Priest, whose example and preeminence clear the way for those who will follow as heirs of the glory given by God the Father.

Isn’t it true that none of the Old Testament passages about the Great Tribulation mention the church?

By identifying the work the Lord is doing to unify the faithful in Israel with the faithful Gentiles through his redemptive work, it becomes clear that there is no expectation that those called into Christ should be mentioned at all in the Old Testament. That they are mentioned indirectly maintains the mystery of God, yet enables God to be glorified by fulfilling his work in Christ and his promise to Abraham.

What is the Real Connection between Israel and the Church?

In this article we look at God’s redemptive work in Christ through the topical framework of the kingdom of God. To do this, we review Christ’s kingdom-building process through the ages with the nation of Israel and with those who were not a people – the Gentiles. What we find is that the hopes of Israel and those faithful in Christ appear to point to a common destination.

In This Way All Israel Will Be Saved

Our focus in this article is to note the process and methods God is using to achieve the salvation for Israel and Judah. Though Israel and the Jews were put to shame and brought upon themselves correction from the Lord, God’s people will be called to return to him, and he will show them mercy and grace as they’ve never seen before. However, although all Israel will be saved, it doesn’t require that they all be saved in the same manner and along the same path.
