Dr. Robert Gundry of Westmont College, a leading posttribulationist, stated in a personal letter to Thomas Ice in December 1995 that the presentation of Pseudo-Ephraem’s sermon by Demy and Ice has "renewed my interest in the topic." What topic? The rapture debate! Gundry authored a landmark book presenting a new form of posttribulationism in 1973 titled The Church and the Tribulation and had not produced a book on this subject until the summer of 1997 when First the Antichrist appeared.

It should come as no surprise that Gundry disagrees with our conclusion.,,

Some people contend that modern Jews do not have the blood of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob in their veins. They contend that modern Jews, whether in or out of the land of Israel have no genetic basis from which to claim that they are Jews, let alone the chosen descendants of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob. Some say that since they are not true Jews then they are not descendants of those who were scattered across the globe in A.D. 70 then they cannot return to what they never really left, which is the land of Israel. Is this true or just another effort to disinherit God’s ancient chosen people? ...
