The Lone Ranger



  1. Hey!
    I was just wondering about this quote in Millennial options: "Id add that interpreters like O. P. Robertson, N. T. Wright, and Lee Irons have offered amil readings of Rom 11 which—if valid—would undercut that chapter as a prooftext for either premils"
    What do they say? I thought Wright was a socialist utopia who's final justification is dependant on what done to build this utopia.

  2. The argument by Lee Irons is available online:


    The argument by Wright is in his commentary on Romans, while the argument by Robertson is in his book: The Israel of God: Yesterday, Today, and Tomorrow.

  3. What do you think of the notion that Christ came to restore Israel to then be a mission to the Gentiles? I ask since that thesis comes out of those who are NPP or sympathetic to it: http://jimhamilton.info/2007/08/10/review-of-jesus-and-the-origins-of-the-gentile-mission-by-michael-f-bird/

    1. I think there's some truth to that. However, it's reductionistic. God can value Israel in its own right as well as a means to an end.

    2. Any good books from a Reformed perspective? I am weary of those sympathetic to NPP
