Dr. Ben Shaw, Professor of Old Testament at Greenville Presbyterian Theological Seminary, has some interesting new posts on his blog GPTS Rabbi. His latest posts have to do with the issue of ethic Israel and the eschatological expectation. The first post, “Are we to expect a future mass conversion of Jews?”, can be found here. The second, “Romans 11:26,” can be found here.
I want to also recommend Dr. George Knight’s article “The Significance of ‘Israel’ in the Usage of the New Testament” in the Robert L. Penny edited The Hope Fulfilled: Essays in Honor of O. Palmer Robertson. And of course, I would be remiss if I did not mention O. Palmer Robertson’s incredible work The Israel of God.
