B 87 Prophecy Fulfilled Today?: Does Ezekiel Have Anything to Say About the Modern State of Israel? (2018)


Many Christians see the modern state of Israel as some sort of ‘restoration’ of the Jewish people to the land in fulfilment of God’s promises. This is usually based on a reading of the prophecies of Ezekiel. 

But this careful study demonstrates that Old Testament prophecies were consistently seen by New Testament writers as fulfilled in Jesus, and lacking any expectation of a separate return to the land. It offers a vital perspective for Christian thinking about both Israel and NT Christology.
