The State of Israel: Why does Israel get a pass for all the things happening in the Middle East, everyone blaming the Muslims, Pakistan, & so on. Can Steve please explain the correct view about Israel in relation to Romans 11?



2015-05-26
The Israel of God: In [Galatians 6:16], is this talking about literal, ethnic Israel, or the Christian Church itself, when Paul says, "the Israel of God"?

"Esau Have I hated, but Jacob have I Loved": God loves EVERYONE, so why does it say in Romans that He hated Esau? [John 3:16, Romans 9:13

Drama of the Israelites: Why is all this drama necessary before Christ came? Why not just promise Abraham that Christ could come & leave it at that?



2015-03-25
Hell Israel: Caller thought there was a verse in Isaiah that we are only partially separated from God, & Steve references 2 Thessalonians 1:9 in answer to that. [2 Thessalonians 1:9]
Lucifer: Comments about Israel from previous calls he's heard. Every time we call Satan Lucifer he's probably laughing since calling him that would be venerating him because it means worshipping.


2015-03-24
Disagree about Restoration of Israel: The "Remnant" of Israel & then a restoration of Israel. [Romans 11]



2015-03-19
Not all Israel, are Israel: Would you help me sort through the context and meaning of the 'hardening in part' of Israel and 'not all are Israel, who are Israel'? Who is the 'olive tree'?

Dispensationalism - Ethnic Israel: Is it true people don't have a true understanding of what or who Israel is, that that's why Dispensationalism is flourishing so much?



2015-01-14
Ethnic Israel having a future role: Does Steve believe ethnic Israel play a role in the end-times? What about all these passages of Scripture then? [Luke 21:24, Romans 11:25-32]



2013-02-07
Jews Never Rejecting the Gospel: What if the Jews had never become hardened to the Gospel? Would the Gentiles still have had a chance at Salvation? It seems like it was a prerequisite for the Gentiles, the Jews having unbelief. [Romans 11:19-20, Romans 11:11-12]

A Stiff-necked People: Can you explain these verses in Exodus to me? God wanted to destroy them, but Moses changed God's mind. [Exodus 32:9-14]
