‘An Evaluative Review of the Major Theological and Exegetical Problems Inherent in Supersessionism.’

KEY WORDS
|| Supersessionism || Covenant Theology ||
||
Fulfilment || Covenants || Land of Israel ||
|| Hermeneutics ||

ABSTRACT
Despite renewed interest in the theological relationship between the Church and Israel in recent times, supersessionism remains the default and entrenched position within much of the contemporary Western Church. This article identifies and traces the historical roots of three strains of supersessionism before it presents and critically engages with key supersessionist beliefs. It is argued that one’s position on the Church-Israel relationship is not a matter of soteriological importance but nonetheless has significant hermeneutical and theological implications. Providing an evaluative review of supersessionism’s key dogmas, this paper concludes that inherent theological, hermeneutical, and exegetical weaknesses severely undermine the doctrine’s biblical credentials.

‘A Re-evaluation of Anglo-Irish Premillennialism 1789-1914:
Part 1.’

KEY WORDS
|| Historic Premillennialism || Dispensationalism ||
||
Nineteenth Century || Charles Spurgeon || Jewish Restoration ||
|| J. C. Ryle || Eschatology || Futurism || Historicism ||

ABSTRACT
Contemporary premillennial interpretations of the last days and the kingdom of God have been largely dominated by two primary interpretations, often described by the nomenclature of “dispensational premillennialism” and “historic premillennialism.” The conclusion is that dispensationalism, though popular in the 19th and 20th centuries, has been replaced by historic premillennialism which is more akin to non-dispensational views of the 19th century and earlier (perhaps summarizing the views of the patristics as well),  hence the formation of the term, “historic premillennialism.”

This article posits the case that this conclusion is reductionist. And, to simplify the premillennial viewpoints down to these two competing interpretations misses the overlapping theological concerns as well as the cultural and contextual milieus that contribute to developing theology. In order to demonstrate, this article will focus on what is commonly called the “long 19th century.” Specifically, this article will begin by comparing contemporary theological thought with writers of the previous century and will then proceed to assess key Anglo-premillennialists from the 19th century.

‘A Re-evaluation of Anglo-Irish Premillennialism 1789-1914:
Part 2’

KEY WORDS
|| Historic Premillennialism || Dispensationalism ||
||
Nineteenth Century || Charles Spurgeon || John Nelson Darby ||
|| Plymouth Brethren || Eschatology || Futurism || Historicism ||

ABSTRACT
Contemporary premillennial interpretations of the last days and the kingdom of God have been largely dominated by two primary interpretations, often described by the nomenclature of “dispensational premillennialism” and “historic premillennialism.” The oft taught conclusion is that dispensationalism, though popular in the 19th and 20th centuries, has been replaced by historic premillennialism which is more akin to non-dispensational views of the 19th century and earlier, perhaps summarizing the views of the patristics as well (An evaluation of the patristics is outside of the scope of these articles, whereas I will focus primarily on the 19th century and beyond. Likely, one can find premillennial support for many views in the patristic writings though the evidence is scant enough to claim any contemporary perspective as identical to the early church writings.), hence the formation of the term, ”historic premillennialism.”

This second article of two posits the case that this conclusion is reductionist. And, to simplify the premillennial viewpoints to these two competing interpretations misses the overlapping theological concerns as well as the cultural and contextual milieus that contribute to developing theology. In order to demonstrate the aforementioned thesis, this article will focus on what is commonly called the “long 19th century” as a focus. Here, Irish premillennialist authors will be evaluated with a specific focus on the “Plymouth Brethren.” The resulting analysis will then be compared with British premillennial authors. Finally, the article will present some possible ways forward in theological discourse for premillennialism as a whole.

‘Seminaries Headed for a Cliff:
A Problem & Proposal for Christian Seminaries’

KEY WORDS
|| Seminaries || Population Cliff || Statistics || Christian Higher Education ||
|| Enrollment Decline || Demographics ||

ABSTRACT
Termed the “population cliff” of 2025 by demographers, a reference to a sharp population decline in the number of college-eligible 18 year olds, institutions of higher education are considering how to navigate their future in light of a lower-than-normal recruitment base attributed to the decline in birth rates stemming from the Great Recession of 2008. Christian seminaries, many of which are already struggling in student enrollment and finances, are particularly vulnerable due to their lack of diversification in program offerings, their traditional modalities of delivery, and their small endowments. If seminaries are dependent primarily upon their graduate programs for enrollment, they will likely experience the effects of the population cliff around 2029 or 2030, some seven years away from the date of this article. This article seeks to raise awareness of the population cliff problem and suggest solutions to Christian seminaries in hopes that they may be carried over the looming population cliff and towards a flourishing new frontier...
