The October 2012 issue of Tabletalk features articles examining the relationship between the church and Israel, a relationship commonly misunderstood by the average layperson. This issue explores the various historical positions regarding this matter, and seek to help readers understand the composition and nature of the "called out ones," from the covenant of works in Adam all the way through the manifestations of the covenant of grace in redemptive history. Further, it pays special attention to how the nation of Israel, instituted at Sinai, factors into God's dynamic plan of salvation.
