John Gill on “Times of the Gentiles”

John Gill, commenting on Luke 21:24, favors a future restoration of the Jews to the land:

until the times of the Gentiles be fulfilled; that is, till the fulness of the Gentiles is brought in; until the Gospel is preached all over the world, and all God’s elect are gathered in out of all nations; and then the Jews will be converted, and return to their own land, and rebuild and inhabit Jerusalem; but till that time, it will be as it has been, and still is possessed by Gentiles. The word “Gentiles”, is left out in one of Beza’s exemplars, and so it is likewise in the Persic version.
