Title: The Church as the New Israel in Romans
Author: Sears, Philip Chase
Advisor: Schreiner, Thomas R
Abstract: By following a biblical theological approach, this thesis demonstrates that a theology of the new Israel is woven throughout the book of Romans. Chapter 1 discusses introductory matters relating to the current debate on the relationship between the church and Israel. Chapter 2 explores Paul's designation of Jesus as God's Son, true Israel, through whom the church finds her identity. Chapter 3 focuses on the new creation promises made to Israel which are fulfilled in Christ and experienced in the church. Chapter 4 then examines the titles and imagery of Israel which Paul applies to the church, identifying her as the new Israel. Finally, chapter 5 addresses some implications of this study for the future of ethnic Israel, and concludes by reasserting that the church is the new Israel, God's covenant people and heirs of all his saving promises.
