Debate topic: “There are no biblical promises awaiting fulfillment in the nation, or ethnic descendants, of Israel.” Steve Gregg of The Narrow Path affirms. Dr. Michael Brown of Ask Dr. Brown denies. Due to hectic schedules, the debate had to be limited to an hour: two 7.5-minute openings, 30 minutes of informal dialogue, and two 5-minute closings.
Dr. Michael L. Brown is the host of the daily, nationally, syndicated talk radio show, “The Line of Fire,” as well as the host of the Jewish-outreach, documentary TV series, “Think It Thru,” which airs internationally on the INSP network. He’s the author of twenty books, including, Our Hands Are Stained with Blood: The Tragic Story of the “Church” and the Jewish People, which has been translated into more than twelve languages, the highly-acclaimed five-volume series, Answering Jewish Objections to Jesus, a commentary on Jeremiah (part of the revised edition of the Expositor’s Bible Commentary), and several books on revival and Jesus revolution. His newest book is A Queer Thing Happened to America: And What a Long, Strange Trip It’s Been.
Coming soon, Dr. Brown joins me to debate the status of Israel with listener to my show and fellow podcaster Travis Finley, host of “The Glory of God & Kings” podcast. Dr. Brown has graciously agreed to an hour of informal, conversational debate with Travis, some time in early July. Travis will be affirming the following proposition: “Israel—whether the descendants of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob, or as a body politic—is no longer uniquely chosen by God, and no longer holds a special status in God’s economy.” Dr. Brown will be denying (as I do).
Stay tuned for what is sure to be a very interesting discussion!
I read some recent feedback from listeners and my responses, discussing Oneness Pentecostalism, Israelology and the Calvinist doctrines of Total Depravity and Irresistible Grace.
My good friend David J. joins me for the second installment in our Israelology series to discuss the people and nation of Israel and her relationship to the Church.
In this episode of the Theopologetics Podcast I am joined by a close friend of mine, asking and answering the question, “Who is a Jew?” This will be the first in a periodic series discussing Israelology, the study of Israel and her people.
