Rev. Dr. Reed Lessing, Professor of Theology & Ministry and Director of The Center for Biblical Studies at Concordia University St. Paul, joins Andy to talk about questions surrounding Israel’s role in God’s plan of salvation as the Israeli-Palestinian Conflict continues and intensifies. They discuss some modern-day misunderstandings we should address, how divergent methods of biblical interpretation play a role in our misunderstandings about modern-day Israel, what Premillennial-Dispensationalism is, whether there is a difference between the modern nation or land now known as Israel and the Israel we read about in the Old Testament, a proper biblical understanding of the land now known as Israel and Palestine, and how we can lovingly talk about this Truth with friends who believe that the nation-state of Israel is a sign of the end times.
