No. This website does not espouse ‘replacement theology’. What is Replacement Theology? Good question. I find that most everyone who uses this term has no real understanding of what it means. Often these people don’t address the arguments, such as we have presented, but instead dismiss these arguments because they supposedly represent ‘replacement theology.’
Replacement theology teaches that since Israel did not fulfill their calling, God chose to replace them with the Church. We don’t believe this because this position represents a fundamental misreading of the Bible. It is actually quite similar to Zionism in that both the Zionist and the Replacement theologian look at the NT and see a radical disjunction between the OT and the NT. That is, neither viewpoint understands the NT as the continuation of the OT story and the fulfillment of it.
This is a very poor way of reading Scripture. The NT is clearly written to show that it not only continues the story of the OT, but that the OT story finds its fulfillment in the NT. It is fundamental to the Scriptures and the character of God that He has been faithful to His promises to Israel through Jesus. This is the book of Romans (and the entire NT for that matter)! See our post on “Blessing Israel: Reading the OT in light of the NT”
So, the viewpoints represented in the essays on this website suggest that the NT maintains a high level of continuity with the OT. This can be seen in the abudance of OT citations throughtout the NT. The old saying, that the “OT is the NT concealed; and the NT is the OT revealed” stands true. Ironically, the views of the Replacement theologians have far more in common with the Zionist than the views held here.
