Levitt is a disgrace to classic dispensationalism. After taunting PDs to present their case in his newsletter, he then backs down when Warner and Haris present the Progressive Dispensationalist case. http://www.geocities.com/lasttrumpet_2000/pd/levitt_mccall.html How can anyone maintain the parenthetical approach to the church after reading the case for PD. I think this is why Levitt backed down. For the record, I too, like Warner, came to the PD position on my own before ever hearing of Saucy, Block, and Blaising. I knew what I believed and was shocked that PD described my position. I came to this position through personal study of the Bible after graduating from seminary! Israel wasn't set aside. The New Covenant was made with the Jewish disciples of Jesus, the remnant! Many were cut off, but not all! Gentiles were grafted in and partake of the NC with True Israel. This alone proves that traditional dispensationalism is in error when it teaches the parenthetical dispensation of the "church" to the exclusion of Israel! Let the war begin!
