    Default "replacement theology" - what is it?

    - I've been accused of it.
    - it's been called satanic and heretical etc etc
    - what is it?
    - where does it originate?
    - does God employ anything like 'replacement theology'?

    sorry, I'm aware there are a million threads out there. here's one more.

    Matthew 21:43
    “Therefore say I unto you, The kingdom of God shall be taken from you, and given to a nation bringing forth the fruits thereof.”

    so taken from the unbelieving descendants of Jacob; given to the believers (now Christians); with the calling of gentiles immediately following.

    Romans 11
    13 Now I am speaking to you Gentiles. In view of the fact that I am an apostle to the Gentiles, I magnify my ministry,

    14 if I can somehow make my own people jealous and save some of them.

    15 For if their being rejected is world reconciliation, what will their acceptance mean but life from the dead?

    16 Now if the firstfruits offered up are holy, so is the whole batch. And if the root is holy, so are the branches.

    17 Now if some of the branches were broken off, and you, though a wild olive branch, were grafted in among them, and have come to share in the rich root of the cultivated olive tree,

    18 do not brag that you are better than those branches. But if you do brag-you do not sustain the root, but the root sustains you.

    19 Then you will say, "Branches were broken off so that I might be grafted in."

    20 True enough; they were broken off by unbelief, but you stand by faith. Do not be arrogant, but be afraid.

    21 For if God did not spare the natural branches, He will not spare you either.

    "First, Ice makes an astounding admission. He cites Gentry, who says that the church has superceded Old Israel for all time, and responds by saying: “I could almost agree with his definition if he removed the phrase ‘all time.’ We dispensationalists believe that the church has superseded Israel during the current church age, but God has a future time in which He will restore national Israel ‘as the institution for the administration of divine blessings to the world.’” In other words, dispensationalists admit that Replacement Theology is, at least temporarily, the will of God!"

    Question: "What is replacement theology / supersessionism?"

    Answer: Replacement theology (also known as supersessionism) essentially teaches that the church has replaced Israel in God’s plan. Adherents of replacement theology believe the Jews are no longer God’s chosen people, and God does not have specific future plans for the nation of Israel. Among the different views of the relationship between the church and Israel are the church has replaced Israel (replacement theology), the church is an expansion of Israel (covenant theology), or the church is completely different and distinct from Israel (dispensationalism/premillennialism).

    Default Re: "replacement theology" - what is it?

    I think the basic belief which is tagged as "Replacement Theology" is that the people who in the Old Testament formed the nation of Israel are now the Church.

    i.e. that the Church was born out of Israel, and as Israel is now defunct, we view the Church as Israel.

    But I am not a theologian.

    I would have thought, since the Church was born out of the root of David, and a remnant, that
    your accuser means covenant theology.

    ​That still doesn't nullify Gods promises to the Jews,nor has the church replaced the Jews. They are separate. But hey I wont argue. I may need a place to stay in sunny FL when winter gets going. ROFL

    “The Christian understanding of the Old Testament is determined by the christocentric focus by which the New Testament writers interpreted the Hebrew Scriptures. Therefore it is essential for a Christian to discover the principles and procedures according to which Christ and His apostles understood and expounded the writings of Moses, the Psalms, and the Hebrew prophets. Otherwise he is in grave danger of reading the Old Testament prophecies in an unchristian way and hence of misinterpreting and distorting the biblical prophecies simply by not interpreting the Old Testament by the New Testament key.

    The Old Testament is no longer the last word on end-time prophecies since the Messiah of prophecy Himself has come as the last Word. The New Testament has been written as the ultimate norm for the fulfillment and interpretation of Israel’s prophecies. A Christian would deny his Christian faith and Lord if he reads the Old Testament as a closed entity, as the full and final message of God for Jews irrespective of the cross and resurrection of Jesus, the Messiah, and apart from the New Testament explanation of the Hebrew writings”

    The Covenant we live under is not an "extension" of Judaism, nor is it a repaired version of the Old Covenant. "All things are made new."

    Here is the text for our consideration.

    “V. 14 – Simeon has related how God first visited the gentiles, to take from them a people for his name.



    V. 15 – and with this the words of the prophets agree, just as it is written,



    V. 16 – ‘After this I will return, and I will rebuild the tent of David that has fallen; I will rebuild its ruins, and I will restore it,



    V. 17 – that the remnant of mankind may seek the Lord, and all the gentiles who are called by my name, says the Lord, who makes these things known from of old.’”


    We will begin by looking briefly at the Old Testament context of this prophetic utterance.

    Then you feel that Jews (though they have no faith, whatsoever, in Christ Jesus) are members of His kingdom? Despite their animosity toward Him?... their denying He is the Son of God?

    They are Temples.

    1 Cor 3:16-17
    16 Know ye not that ye are the temple of God, and that the Spirit of God dwelleth in you?
    17 If any man defile the temple of God, him shall God destroy; for the temple of God is holy, which temple ye are.

    As I recall, there was an "AGREEMENT", not open-ended promises. An agreement (Covenant) requires the upholding of prescribed stipulations by BOTH parties, or it is null and void.
