Christians did not "replace" Jews. --Dr. E.
We agree. ;-)
God's family of believing Jews grew into all those who believe the Messiah came and conquered death and is God Himself. --Dr. E
In the church age we call our brothers and sisters Christians.
However, why partially blind Israel and is this blinding permanent? We both read our Bibles regularly and have read Romans 11 closely.
The partial hardening of Israel according to the flesh is not permanent. Many will, in the end, in the gracious will of God, be regenerated, come to faith, and join the rest of God's people in the church. They will be Christian.
Have you not read the scriptures, where it says "It is those who are of faith who are children of Abraham.", and "And if you are Christ's, then you are Abraham's offspring, heirs according to promise" ?
Amen, Lee. I can’t comprehend a Christianity outside your description. It was a Jesuit priest who first pushed this anti-Scriptural theory.
Divide and conquer, their favorite tactic. The counter-Reformation never ended.
