There's only one conclusion you can draw by taking the prophecies of the Bible literally, says New York Times best-selling author Joel Richardson. Someday soon, a Jew named Yeshua - or Jesus, as he's known in the West - will rule the world from Jerusalem.
In his new book, When a Jew Rules the World, Richardson paints a picture of what that 1,000-year reign will be like, along the way blow-torching the notion that gentile Christians have "replaced" the Jews and Israel as the people of promise. Richardson lays out the tragic history of anti-Semitism within the church from the very beginning in what may be the most thorough repudiation of what has become known as "Replacement Theology", or, as Richardson calls it, "Supersessionism".
Joseph Farah, founder of WND.com, calls When a Jew Rules the World "one of the most important books of our time - a chance for Christians to rediscover their true identity as fellow heirs of promise with the House of Israel, the wild olive branches grafted into the tree of the Abrahamic Covenant. Paul explained how we are grafted into that tree. The tree is not dead. It hasn't been uprooted. It's still very much alive, as Richardson so masterfully demonstrates through scripture". Chuck Missler praises When a Jew Rules the World, calling the book, "A must read for the serious Christian."
What exactly is the Abrahamic Covenant, and is it still relevant today? Has the New Testament done away with the Old Testament? Is the Church the new and true Israel? What is the Kingdom of God? What lies ahead for the State of Israel? How should gentile believers relate to unbelieving Jews? Richardson answers these questions and more as he carefully walks the listener through the most essential passages of the Bible that must be understood if one desires to combat the growing Christian anti-Semitism.

Increasing my ops tempo by allowing storytellers to whisper in my ear(buds).
Now here’s a book with a provocative title and thought-provoking text to match. This is an excellent and thorough treatment on the distinctions between the Christian eschatological positions of Amillennialism and Premillennialism. As he carefully develops his argument Richardson gives his detractors plenty chew on. By the end of the book he is redefining Supersessionism as Divestment Theology because the adherents would take away all the scriptural blessings directed toward Israel and would have the Church usurp those blessings. He does a fine job explaining how eschatology shapes and defines a person’s theology in m any areas. I think he makes his case convincingly and that his discussion should give anyone wanting to consider the Church as the new Israel pause. This is a fine eschatological treatment in defense of Premillennialism. I can recommend this to anyone wanting to hear the Premillennial case expounded and defended.
Joe Geoffery, the narrator of Joel Richardson’s earlier book Mideast Beast, again does the reading for this book. And like that other book, I found Mr. Geoffery’s diction and tone of voice to be soothing but his inflection to be muddling. I so wish that he had made more of a distinction between the text and the many lengthy quotes.
Rightly dividing the word of truth is a rare endeavor for the modern a Christian, leaving them ignorant of their past history to the corruption of their present doctrine. Assuming themselves to have righteously usurped Israel's promises, the Jew has become to the Christian, an object of scorn and bitterness at best and a convient scapegoat, subject to retribution, at worst.
When a Jew Rules the World is a clearly presented study of this history - a study of the well-meaning, but ever-deceiving human heart.
Very informative regarding how anti-Semitic most of the world is....including Christians. Such an eye opener. This is a great book for Christians who point the finger at other people groups when it should be pointing back at us in a big historical way. It is giving me a bigger voice to speak to the church about exposing this terrible travesty against the Jews
There was very little I disliked. In fact I was sorry it ended. The documented information Joel gave helps one understand the genesis of anti-Semitic vitriol that is dangerously on the rise today. The revelation of Jew hatred coming from the Church is systematically spelled out in just the right amount. The readers can see how this hatred and desire to rid the world of God's chosen people has poisoned the church. Most Christians of today are unaware of how this hatred has mastasisized and caused too many to turn their back on Israel,
This book should be read by pastors throughout the world. What a different outcome that might bring!
When I listen to a book of this type, I want to feel as if I took a college class. This fit the bill. Almost as good as his The Islamic Antichrist. I recommend both.
I love this book, and the heart that penned it, because I believe it reflects the heart of God.
my understanding about the question, "why did Jesus come preaching the gospel of the kingdom?", has been an unfolding revelation these past 8 years of my life. this book articulates and confirms what I have been thinking about, but not hearing much on.
as I understand it how we live now will determine our specific role and position in the coming kingdom(see luke 19)...
Mark 1, and Matthew 4 and other places tell us that Jesus came preaching the gospel of the kingdom....after reading Dwight Pentecost (thy kingdom come) and (things to come) the veil was lifted, and I saw how the kingdom will be the time and place 5hat the davidic, abrahamic, and new covenants will find their fulfillment.
that means that literally most of the bible is about the millennium or to use a synonymous word, the kingdom. why? because these covenants have not been completed. Joel Richardson's book will help unfold these things, in a most wonderful way. I have been told by friends that I am so heavenly minded that I'm no earthly good, but the truth is just the opposite. we need a correct mind, and perspective about why the kingdom is everything. read this book to learn why....blessings, kindly, Jim
I'm an author of 8 books, one of which I recorded in my Podcast Studio, a father of 2 boys and 1 girl (now grown up) and 2 grand children.
Too good to ignore. Required reading. Very encouraging. A definite must read for all Christians!
"A voice for our time"
Well researched presentation, as is Joel's norm. Scripture rich. All who go by the name of Christ would do well to read and take note of the call and alarm he sounds.T his is easily accessible to the lay person. If you are not quite clear on or convinced of the calling and place of Israel and the Jews in the unfolding plan of God in the days that we live in I thoroughly recommend this book. Joel is a credit to the voice of calm resourced Christian teaching on this most importsnt subject.
It has made me read and study the Word with more attention to detail than before. I have always been aware of the place of Israel and the Jewish people in God's heart and still this book is a wake up call. Be prepared for a world view change.
