I've been listening to and reading a lot of stuff by Art Katz. I am really intrigued at his teaching in regard to Israel and the Church, and namely, his use of Old Testament prophecies, that, historically and grammatically, in their original context, appear to simply be refering to the then exile of Israel/Judah from their lands in 722 & 586 bc, and then return after exile. Yet, he seems to use a lot of these same Scriptures as referring to present Israel. Could anybody explain his usage of them in a sort of "greater context" that I don't understand? Generally speaking, I believe his message, however, I am not so sure of his usage of Scripture in which he seems to base this message on.
