Back in October last year Chosen People Ministries brought together some of the best scholars who argue for a continuing place for the nation of Israel and the land in God’s future plans. Issues such as hermeneutics, Jewish evangelism, and the teaching of individual books of the Bible are addressed by scholars such as Darrell Bock, Craig Evans, John Feinberg and Michael Vlach.
