I am the wife of my best friend, Jason. "I am a Calvinist, and a lover of that grand man’s memory and doctrine; but I believe nothing merely because Calvin taught it, but because I have found his teaching in the Word of God" (CH Spurgeon). I am part of a great body of believers who recognize the sovereignty and supremacy of God, and who's desire is to have Christ's name exalted throughout the nations. My mission statement would follow that of John Piper's (well, really Paul's): I exist to spread a passion for the supremacy of God, in all things, for the joy of all peoples, through Christ Jesus.

Israelology

I'm reading a book by Dr. Arnold Fruchtenbaum titled, Israelology: The Missing Link in Systematic Theology.

It is very interesting. The definition of Israelology is:

A subdivision of Systematic Theology incorporating all theological doctrines concerning the people of Israel.

Basically it takes on both dispensationalism and covenant theology to look at the significance of Israelology.

Fruchtenbaum is very much into how Israelology relates to end times.

There are some subtle theological differences between his doctrinal worldview and mine which makes it a bit more interesting in studying this new "missing link" in systematic theology.

If any of you have some spare time (like I do...NOT!), pick this up, give it a gander, and see what I'm talking about.

"give it a gander"... lol! Julianne, you and my roomate (also from your state) have given me so many new phrases. By the way, yes, AOL is in... I like it very much (except for the fact that it generally messes up everything else in your computer).

Jenny: I recommend AIM because it is for cool people (but mainly because everyone uses it). MSN Messenger is part of the evil empire.

Julianne: "Give it a gander"?... ... okay.

So.... I haven't commented in a while, for various reasons I guess :)

However, this post does compel me to ask a question... does the book cover anything about padeobaptism?

Honestly I don't know enough about it except that it has to do with covenant theology and baptising infants (of which I don't agree with). Was curious if he throws that into the mix of Israelology or not.

Hi Julianne,

I have not read Dr. Fruchtenbaum's book, as yet, but I will have to soon. I was unaware of his book when I was writing my book titled, "Israelology - The Birthright, House of Israel, Kingdom, and Sons of God".

Like you, I am sure that there some subtle theological differences in what he writes and what I have written. We may even use some of the same scriptures with different levels of understanding.

My approach is to take the principles of the Birthright; which the church knows very little about; add it to the prophecies to the Houses of Israel and Judah, and take it to its logical and scriptural conclusion.

I have found that we all base our beliefs upon the degree of our understanding the information available to us. Often, that information is incomplete. I have attempted to rectify that by a full survey of the scriptures with nothing out of context.

God's Plan is to take us and mature us for His End-time Purposes. If you are interested in more information about my book, you may visit my website for a more detailed introduction. Go to:

I have 3 introductory videos available there. Thanks!
