There’s only one conclusion you can draw by taking the prophecies of the Bible literally, says New York Times bestselling author Joel Richardson. Someday soon, a Jew named Yeshua – or Jesus, as he’s known in the West – will rule the world from Jerusalem.
In his new book, When a Jew Rules the World, Richardson paints a picture of what that one-thousand-year reign will be like, along the way blow-torching the notion that gentile Christians have "replaced" the Jews and Israel as the people of promise. Richardson lays out the tragic history of anti-Semitism within the church from the very beginning in what may be the most thorough repudiation of what has become known as “Replacement Theology,” or, as Richardson calls it, “Supersessionism.”
Joseph Farah, founder of WND.com, calls When a Jew Rules the World “one of the most important books of our time – a chance for Christians to rediscover their true identity as fellow heirs of promise with the House of Israel, the wild olive branches grafted into the tree of the Abrahamic Covenant. Paul explained how we are grafted into that tree. The tree is not dead. It hasn’t been uprooted. It’s still very much alive, as Richardson so masterfully demonstrates through scripture.”
Chuck Missler praises When a Jew Rules the World, calling the book, “A must read for the serious Christian.”
What exactly is the Abrahamic Covenant, and is it still relevant today?
Has the New Testament done away with the Old Testament?
Is the Church the new and true Israel?
What is the Kingdom of God?
What lies ahead for the State of Israel?
How should gentile believers relate to unbelieving Jews?
Richardson answers these questions and more as he carefully walks the reader through the most essential passages of the Bible that must be understood if one desires to combat the growing Christian anti-Semitism. As the rage and resistance of Satan to God’s plans with Israel continues to spread throughout the earth, now is the hour for discerning Christians everywhere to arm themselves with a clear understanding of these profoundly importand and foundational matters.
- Clear-cut, Scriptural and Contextually Sound
Terrific book! I'm not a college-educated Bible scholar--many of those guys are off, in my opinion--but Joel takes foundational teachings and prophecies from Scripture and compares them to one another to demonstrate why/where/how Israel and the Jews will be redeemed by God in the End Times and how it all fits within God's original Redemptive Plan. Nothing new here--no complicated arguments bobbing and weaving in and around Scripture to try to make all the pieces fit: just a clear-cut & consistent examination of all Scriptures discussing the Abrahamic Covenant, Israel, the End Times, the Millennial Reign of Christ, as well as the historically dangerous role Judaic substitution/replacement theology has played in anti-Semitism, persecution and violence against the Jews since Christ's resurrection.
- Are Jews Still God's People?
When A Jew Ruled The World by Joel Richardson is a book that discusses in great detail the role of Israel in modern day Christianity. The main question of the book is whether Jewish people are still an integral part of God's plan or whether they have been replaced by Christians.
It also covers the horrible treatment of Jewish people over the years by not just evil dictators like Hitler or Stalin but Christians under the impression that Jewish people are not part of God's plan anymore. It lays out strong arguments for the affirmative but also covers the objections as well.
I found this book interesting but also extremely sad as it contains horrific comments that are extremely anti-Semitic coming from people normally considered as great Christian leaders such as Martin Luther. Personally I think that the Jewish people still have a massive part to play in God's plan, so I was surprised that so many Christians disagree.
The narration was quite well done as it was quite a long book and I already agreed with the author coming into the book, so the narration was good enough to hold my attention the whole time.
This book would be great for someone wondering what part the Jewish people play in God's plan post Jesus Christ coming to the earth and Christianity being born.
