Below is an excellent article by Ron Cantor (his bio at the bottom) concerning the theological bankruptcy of Stephen Sizer‘s anti-Israel propaganda.
This paper is a rebuttal to Dr. Stephen Sizer’s (pictured…he is the one of the right) paper, Jerusalem: The City of God in Biblical Tradition, that he gave at the Int’l Conference on Jerusalem in Qatar, before a multi-religious group.
