Jewish Themes in the New Testament, Am Yisrael Chai! by Paul Morris and published by Paternoster.
The book outlines what the Bible teaches about the Jewish people and religion. Jewish Themes in the New Testament is an examination of what the New Testament teaches about the Jewish people in the era of the New Covenant. The core of that teaching is an affirmation of Gods continued faithfulness to them. In a day when opinions regarding the Jewish people are increasingly polarised as some stress their position centre-stage and others consign them to the dustbin of history, this book seeks to demonstrate from the New Testament that both extremes are wrong.
This unique book considers the theological issues, but it is concerned for much more; it is about Jewish people and the Jews as a people, as the New Testament sees them. Paul Morris has given us a robust introduction to a Christian theology of Israel. He underscores the on-going place of Israel in the plan (and the heart!) of God while simultaneously exploring the many facets of the Jewish response(s) to the gospel. Plunge in and you will surely sharpen your own thinking about Israel and the gospel!
