  • Summary:

    According to W. Eugene March, the world belongs to God. We do not ‘own’ land; rather, land is a loan from God and we must use it responsibly, that is, in a right and just way. In that context, March reflects on the present state of Israel and then examines the claim by many Jews and Christians to a God-given right to a particular portion of Palestine. March gives special attention to the current reality of the state of Israel, the history and biblical data regarding the significance of land, and a theological understanding of the relationship of biblical Israel to contemporary Israel.
