This essay reflects on the theological question of the future of Israel. Blaising defines "Israel" as a designation for the descendants of Jacob as an ethnic, cultural, and national entity. Consideration of the future of Israel is a question about the national future of the descendants of Jacob. The author does not ask about the future of Israel as a state. He first discusses the view of supersessionism and two-covenant theology. Next, he discusses aspects of a non-supersessionist evangelical theology that he holds to.
