“Not all who are descended from Israel belong to Israel”
The true Israel are not the fresh and blood descendants of Abraham but descendants of the faith of Abraham, the followers of the Chosen One, Jesus; a new people who arise from every tribe and nation.
Christians were to be the new chosen ones. Not because they were better or superior in any way, but because God wanted to raise up a people to be an example to a lost world of how to live a life in accordance with God’s law and will.
