Description

Recent events in Gaza have once again highlighted the near intractable problems that seem to plague the modern Near East. For Christians there is the added dimension of the status of God's promises to Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob, and in particular in the light of the same God's new covenant inaugurated in Christ. How are we to respond when, for example, the Abrahamic promise of land results in suffering for our Palestinian brothers and sisters in Christ? This Forum is an attempt to help us think through the issues. Rikk has recently written an article on Israel and Salvation for the Oxford Dictionary of Evangelical Theology. This forum was hosted by the RCSA.
