Leuenberg Church Fellowship: Theological Study 'Church and Israel' accepted
From 19th to 25th June 2001, the 5th General Assembly of the Churches of the Leuenberg Church Fellowship was held at Queen's University, Belfast. The document 'Church and Israel' was received and accepted by the General Assembly with gratitude. The General Assembly asks the churches to accept the result of the doctrinal conversation and to take note of it in Christian-Jewish dialogue and in their own work on the theme of the church and Israel. With this document, for the first time since the Reformation the Protestant churches in Europe have together expressed what can be said today about the relationship between the church and Israel and the collaboration of Christians and Jews on the basis of the Holy Scriptures of the Old and New Testaments and church doctrine. The General Assembly is aware that the last word on this theme has not yet been said, but believes that the discussion can be continued well on the basis of this study.
