Jesus and the Land

Also Available In

"A valuable contribution. Burge's reading of Scripture is persuasive and provides a fresh way to think about 'faith and land.'"
--Walter Brueggemann, Columbia Theological Seminary

^In Jesus and the Land, respected New Testament scholar Gary Burge describes first-century Jewish and Christian beliefs about the land of Israel in order to help contemporary readers develop a Christian theology of the land and assess Bible-based claims in discussions of the Israeli-Palestinian struggle. Burge provides a full survey of New Testament passages that directly address the question of land and faith and offers an honest and compelling presentation of present-day tensions surrounding "territorial religion" in the modern Middle East. This accessibly written volume will appeal to undergraduate and seminary students, pastors, teachers, and anyone interested in the Israeli-Palestinian situation.

How did Jesus view the Land?
5 stars By Vicki Lorrimar, Jan 29 2013
Tackling the contentious issue of the significance of Israel and the Holy Land, Burge provides a reasoned exegesis of key New Testament passages relating to land. This book is of direct relevance to discussions about contemporary territorial disputes and gives an alternative view to that presented by Christian Zionism. Having read a few sources from differing viewpoints on this matter, I found Burge's propositions to be clear, sensible and moderate and would recommend this book to anyone wrestling with understanding the relationship by the people of Israel and the land.
