Hope of Israel: What is It? eBook by Philip Mauro
What is the true and biblical “Hope of Israel”? It was because of Paul’s view and preaching in regard thereto that he was so furiously persecuted by the Jews, and was finally sent to chains in Rome. Inasmuch as what Paul had been preaching, both to the Jews and also the Gentiles, was the gospel of Jesus Christ, and nothing else, it follows that the true “hope of Israel” is part of the gospel; and therefore it is a matter regarding which we cannot afford to be mistake. Had he been preaching what the Jews themselves believed to be, and what their rabbis had given them as, the true interpretation of the prophecies (namely, that God’s promise to Israel was a kingdom of earthly character which should have dominion over all the world) they would have heard him with intense satisfaction.
But what Paul and all the apostles preached was, that what God had promised afore by His prophets in the Holy Scripture was a kingdom over which Jesus Christ of the seed of David should reign in resurrection, and one into which Gentiles are called upon terms of perfect equality with the Jews. Thus the teaching of Christ and His apostles in respect to the vitally important subject of the Kingdom of God, the hope of Israel, came into violent collision with that of the leaders of Israel; and because of this He was crucified and the apostles persecuted.
Originally published in 1928 this theological classic demonstrates that modern Dispensationalism’s doctrine of the restoration of an earthly kingdom to national Israel is a revival of the very same teachings which led to the crucifixion of Christ and the persecution of the early Christians by the apostate Jews.
