Full course description
This is a foundational course, an essential course, that every believer should take. The term “Israelology” was first coined by Dr. Fruchtenbaum; he was also the first to develop an entire branch of Systematic Theology dealing exclusively with the doctrine of Israel.
One cannot understand the Bible fully or correctly unless one understands God’s teachings on Israel.
This course focuses on the doctrine of Israel Past, Israel Present, and Israel Future, within the framework of Dispensationalism. Students will learn foundational issues such as definitions of key terms, the election of Israel, the Covenants, the Law of Moses, the Sabbath, the Remnant, the Kingdom of God program, Israel and the Church, Israel today, Romans 9-11, Messianic Jewish identity, Israel in relationship to End Time events, anti-Semitism, and so much more!
