THE WORLD IN THE BONDAGE OF EGYPT - UNDER THE TRIUMPHAL ARCH OF TITUS
Finally, a work that places antiquity's Triumphal Arches in the context of their origins and why this is not only history past but present, even future. Furthermore, the context of these monuments are anything but naive displays of grandeur--they were erected to demonstrate the triumph of the victor over the conquered. What is most fascinating is the original Roman Arch of Triumph fully developed by General Titus to commemorate the Roman Empire's victory over Judea and the commencement of the diaspora of the Jews circa 70 AD. The authors "connect the dots" whereby the Kingdoms of the World under the "Bondage of Egypt"—from whence Israel's First Exodus took place—have been at deliberate odds with the Kingdom of God.
Alas! The Second Exodus—the Greater Exodus culminates at the "end of the age" in which "God's Elect" from both Israel, primarily the House of Judah, and "those called out from among the Gentiles" - that "multitude among the nations" which is prophetically labeled the "Fullness of the Gentiles"—reach their zenith. Indeed, this is not an abhorrent teaching found within British Israelism or a Noahide derivative—or for that matter, for those in the know, some form of Hebrew Roots. No, this is the eternal purpose of the Almighty who purposed through His Messiah, the Deliverer Who shall come "out of Zion" to rescue His ancient people and those brought into the "Commonwealth of Israel” (again, those from among the nations--the Gentiles--a "people for His Name") AND to make of these "two houses" - these "two sticks" - one nation, one peculiar people – one New Man, One Body, a New Creation . . . distinct but not separated for eternity!
Yes, this is an intense commentary based on extensive biblical passages which confirm the Gospel of the Grace of God, the New Covenant; yes, the Everlasting Covenant of Peace between these two houses which was won in atonement at the Cross nigh 2,000 years ago.
The reader shall discover, the "enemy of our souls" has heretofore kept the "faithful son" and the "prodigal son" separated by jealousy and apart—but the Father desires there to be but One House. Even so, Messiah came to the "lost sheep of the House of Israel"—but did He not say: "Other sheep I have which are not of this fold, them also I must bring, and they will hear My voice, and there will be one flock and one shepherd" (John 10:16)?
Those with a Jewish background should read this text with intense interest—Christians who have heretofore dismissed such insights do well to consider the major theological issues raised as a result of these discoveries and why they confront us at this most critical time in world history. The authors have generously illustrated the text to substantiate its contents and have prepared an exhaustive Scripture Reference Index, as well as an Exhaustive Subject Index and Bibliography.
Authors Schafer and Krieger realize the subject matter is NOT for general consumption; however, with the outbreak of "Biblical Zionism"—the prophetic fulfillment of the Jews returning to Eretz Israel (the Land of Israel) and Christians of goodwill who know that their relationship with this prophetic fulfillment brings the world close to the Messianic age and the "final redemption"—then ought not there to be greater light from the pages of this Book of books by the very "people of the book" wherein it is said in "The Scripture of Truth" (Daniel 10:21): "But you, O Daniel, shut up the words and seal the Book until the time of the end. [Then] many shall run to and fro and search anxiously [through the Book], and knowledge [of God’s purposes as revealed by His prophets] shall be increased and become great" (Daniel 12:4).
Yes, this is an intense theological discourse; but it is a book of pending fulfillment—a prophetic call for "God's People" to embrace their glorious destiny. God bless these efforts—may they enter the hearts of His people; giving hope in the Coming of the Son of Man, the Son of David, alone to bring in the Messianic Age! MARANATHA! O Lord Come!
