Overview

The issue of Israel is one of the major points of division in evangelical theology today. This is true both among Arminians and Calvinists. An evangelical theologian’s view of Israel will determine whether he is a Covenant Theologian or a Dispensationalist. It will also determine what kind of Covenant Theologian he is: postmillennial, amillennial, or premillennial. The question of Israel is central for a proper Systematic Theology. Paul, in his epistle to the Romans, which contains the first Systematic Theology in Church history, expounds on Israel in the center of his epistle, devoting three full chapters (9–11) out of sixteen to this topic. Yet, while there are many Systematic Theologies today which have systematized areas of biblical truth, none thus far have developed an Israelology as part of their system.

The primary purpose of this course is to identify and systematize the doctrine of Israel through four Protestant conservative/evangelical Systematic Theologies. This purpose includes identifying and defining the four systems of theology and the Systematic Theology upon which they are based; showing where Israelology fits into the framework of a total Systematic Theology; and, determining how a theological system may lead to anti-Semitism, pro-Semitism, or indifference to the issue. The secondary purpose of this course is to develop and systematize a theology of Israel consistent within the framework of Dispensationalism.

About the Instructor

Arnold G. Fruchtenbaum (1943– ) is one of the foremost authorities on the nation of Israel. He is a messianic believer and founder and director of Ariel Ministries, an organization dedicated to evangelism and discipleship of Jewish people.

Fruchtenbaum was born in Siberia and just four years later his family escaped to Germany after Fruchtenbaum’s father was released from a communist prison in Siberia. While living in Germany, Arnold received Orthodox training from his father. The Fruchtenbaums immigrated to New York, and five years later, at age 13, Arnold came to believe that Jesus was the Messiah.

Before earning his doctorate from New York University, Fruchtenbaum also studied at Dallas Theological Seminary, Jewish Theological Seminary, and Hebrew University of Jerusalem.

Fruchtenbaum worked as a missionary with American Board of Missions to Jews (known today as Chosen People Ministries) where he also served as editor of their monthly publication, The Chosen People.

Titles from Fruchtenbaum include How Jewish Is Christianity?: 2 Views on the Messianic Movement, Ariel’s Bible Commentary: The Book of Genesis, and titles in the Ariel Ministries Messianic Collection (11 vols.).
