The Church and the nations have a bloody history as far as Israel is concerned. To our shame and misery, and possibly because of it, Satan has used the Church in his attempt to destroy the Jewish People.
Many Christians over the centuries, and even today, say that Israel was God’s chosen people until the moment they said “no” to Jesus. And then their place was taken by this new people of God, all those who believe in Jesus. The Apostle Paul, however, demonstrates that this is – and cannot be – the case.
