Item description for Where Is The Body? by Victor Schlatter & Vic Schlatter...
Overview Where Is the Body? takes a fresh look at the Church's relationship to Israel and the Jewish people, which is a must in these days when Bible prophecy needs a proper anchor to keep it from fling off into the realm of fantasy. Today, many are reassessing this relationship in the light of the reality of the regathered Israel, Christians rediscovering their 'Jewish roots' and Christian and Jewish scholars studying the Bible together -- including the New Testament and the words of Jesus. Is this not what God intended from the beginning? This book rightly divides the Word of God to bring insight into Paul's words to the Ephesians concerning Jews and Gentiles, 'For He Himself [Jesus] is our peace, who has made the two one...to create in Himself one new man...thus making peace' (Eph. 2:14-15).
Publishers Description As a born-again Christian, you have a glorious heritage in Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob. The Bible constantly teaches concerning the power of the Jew and Gentile family of God. Victor Schlatter, a passionate church planter and Bible translator in the Australasia area, will open your eyes to the scriptural reality that there always has been and always will be one family of Abraham. He shows how the Church will not be ready as the Bride of Christ until all Jewish components of the covenant promises are fulfilled. Only then will all things close at the end of the ages as the Bible decrees

What the Church Needs to Know about Israel and Why Jun 6, 2000
As the `time of the end' draws closer and closer, it is appropriate that thinking Christians should pay more attention to the many passages in the Word which throw light on God's plans and promises. None are of more importance than those which relate to our Jewish roots - to Israel! Schlatter is passionate on the subject, seeing our one-eyed obsession with ourselves as the promised church without spot or wrinkle, but with hardly a thought as to where Abraham's natural descendants fit into the picture. And fit they do!
In his racy, conversational style, Schlatter builds a powerful case for the rejoining of the two arms of Christ's Body into one complete whole. He deplores the centuries-old blind and bitter attitudes of many representatives of the Christian church, which caused such cruel persecution of Jews, both nationally and personally, tracing them back to the time of Constantine in Rome. Even unto this day, many calling themselves Christian hold the Jew in execration! A careful examination of Scripture clearly showes that this is not God's view!
On the contrary, we see that even as the Jewish roots were set aside so that the Gentile peoples could be grafted in, so there is to come a time when they will be restored. Schlatter's conviction is that now is that time!
Having established a well-documented case for a church made up of Jews and Gentiles welded into one Body, Schlatter turns his attention to various other popularly held doctrines, such as those concerning the Antichrist, the Rapture, and the final Battle of the Ages, and presents a fresh approach to each. However, his heartfelt cry is for the Gentile church of today to so flow with the love of God toward our Jewish brethren that we seize the opportunity to fulfill Paul's teaching in Romans 11:25-32, and see them `provoked to jealousy' because of our love for one another, just as God intended that they should be.
This book offers interesting and important insight into truths now being revealed to the body of Christ, and can be recommended to all who are seeking a deeper understanding of God's intent, as we come closer and closer to the unfolding of His plans for His people.
Review by NOW: Australian Christian Churches News Magazine Apr 26, 2000
Here is an intriguing expose on the relationship between Israel and the Christian Church. Pulling no punches with the alleged anti-Semitic,end-times theologians of our time, Victor Schlatter draws on his experiences as a third-world Bible translator to present some fascinating insights into the biblical perspective on who belongs where in the body of Christ. With some surprising conclusions about, for example, who the '144,000' are, this well-read commentator is sure to give your brain a wake-up nudge as you contemplate your stance on end-times-ology. This is a must-read, biblically based alternative viewpoint with more than a little credibility.
