Hagee on Jewish Salvation

John Hagee has further clarification on the upcoming revision of his book In Defense of Israel. In Thursday's San Antonio Express he says:

"I'm not retracting anything in my rewrite," Hagee said in a written statement. "I'm simply clarifying what some have misunderstood. Jesus was the Messiah, but He came as the Suffering Messiah while the Jews were looking for a Reigning Messiah."

As to whether Jews who don't believe in Jesus put their souls at risk, Hagee points to Bible passages that promise that the Jewish people will receive Christian salvation later in God's timeframe.

"Billy Graham didn't target Jews. The man who started Campus Crusade for Christ, Bill Bright, refused to target the Jews. I'm not targeting the Jews," he said.

I guess that means he must think that all Jewish people who have died in the last two thousand years will somehow get a second chance later.

"Just as man is destined to die once, and after that to face judgment, so Christ was sacrificed once to take away the sins of many people; and he will appear a second time, not to bear sin, but to bring salvation to those who are waiting for him." (Heb. 9:27-28)
