A Jew and a Gentile Discuss
#36 | Problems with the Church Replacing Israel
Out with the old and in with the new? Some would say so, but in this episode of A Jew and A Gentile Discuss, Carly and Ezra explain the errors and dangers in the notion that the New Testament Church somehow replaces God’s covenant with Israel. In this first of a two-part series, they address:
- What Replacement Theology is
- How to recognize it when you hear it
- Dangers of Replacement Theology
- The subtle trouble with Pope Francis’ seemingly positive statement toward the Jewish people several years ago
- Whether or not Christians can dismiss the Old Testament in sole favor of the New
Along the way
During their conversation, they also touch on such relevant sidenotes such as:
- How word choice matters, and the erroneous message conveyed by such wording as “convert” and “become a Christian”
- How the Holocaust and anti-Semitism play into the notion of Replacement Theology
- The Church, Gentiles, Jewish people and Replacement Theology as imagined through the eyes of the devil…yikes!
- Real-life persecution of Jewish people today that sounds like it’s right out of the history books
- The relationship between Dual Covenant Theology and Replacement Theology
