The Two-Age Model (Part One) (10/16)

The Church as the Israel of God – Replacement Theology? (16/16)
Dr. Riddlebarger discusses the important aspect of Reformed Amillennialism, that being the ideas that the Church is the Israel of God. Understanding this controversial aspect of Reformed Amillennialism is vital because it is this concept that brings considerable criticism from premillennial dispensationalists by their accusation that amillennials reject Israel and replace them with the Church.
