1996: Genesis 4:17-24: A Case-study in Eisegesis

‘Genesis 4:17-24: A Case-study in Eisegesis’, in Tyndale Bulletin 47 (1996) 143-162

This article summarises both ancient and modern interpretations of Genesis 4:17-24, paying particular attention to the relatively unknown Jewish exegesis of this pericope. Usually there is a relation between the social and cultural position of the exegete and his positive or negative view of the technical achievements of Cain and his posterity. After a long period of negative interpretation, Calvin is the first to establish another outlook. In this century the discussion between J. Gabriel and C. Westermann reveals many motifs.

2014 – Toekomst van Israël – vroegchristelijke kerk

‘Ik zend u de profeet Elia’: de toekomst van Israël volgens de vroegchristelijke kerk
Artikel in Theologia Reformata 57-1 (2014) 22-39

Engelse samenvatting van het Nederlandstalige artikel:
Many early church theologians believed that the Christian church had replaced God’s chosen people Israel to become recipients of Old Testament promises. At the same time many writers expected a future conversion of Israel. This article reviews the latter position during the first five centuries of the church.
The analysis reveals that the expectation of a future conversion of Israel rests on the promises of several Old Testament prophets and the words of Paul in Romans 11, not on the view that the covenant with Abraham extends to his natural descendants. The role of Elijah according Malachi is also important.
Several theologians expected a combination of conversion and return of Jews to the land of Israel, but the majority did not. Their emphasis is on the conversion to Christ at the end of the times and on the participation of the converted Jews in the church. The contemporary replacement of Israel by the church is not expected to be lasting because in the future God will give salvation to his formerly chosen people.
