Jesus and the Land: How the New Testament Transformed 'Holy Land' Theology
SPCK,Baker Academic 2010
Jesus and the Land will help Christians to form a biblical view about modern-day claims to the land in Israel-Palestine. Examining what the New Testament says about the idea of land being “holy,” this guide is accessible and non-technical.
In the Logos edition, all Scripture passages in Jesus and the Land are tagged to the original language texts and the English translation of your choice, which makes this resource more powerful and easier to access than ever before. With Logos’ advanced features, you can perform powerful searches by topic or Scripture reference—finding, for example, every mention of “Jesus” or “restoration.”
