Jesus and the Land

Gary M Burge

Paperback 2010-04-01

"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.
