I have long wondered about Israel’s claim to Gaza. This article summarizes the argument of John Piper wherein he makes a claim that Israel is not entitled to Gaza—at least, not right now anyway. To me, a non-scholar, it’s well-argued and Biblical. His final point:

Finally, this inheritance [of the Promised Land] of Christ’s people will happen at the Second Coming of Christ to establish his kingdom, not before; and till then, we Christians must not take up arms to claim our inheritance; but rather lay down our lives to share our inheritance with as many as we can.

If you don’t read the full text of Piper’s sermon, at least read the summary at The Gospel Coalition.
