This is a most excellent analysis and this especially bears repeating.
Israel, which was chosen from among the gentiles, must, contrary to every human expectation, first give way to the gentiles. But as Israel because of its disobedience has become a cause of salvation for the gentiles, so now the gentiles must provoke Israel to jealousy. There is thus an interaction. God grants no mercy to Israel without the gentiles, but neither does he do so to the gentiles without Israel.
I would even go so far as to say that the errors and corruption of Israel's disobedience is given for our instruction as a sign of the errors and corruption the Gentiles face. If one compare the two histories, they'll find there are strange parallels.

Going through my audio files, looking for things to clean out, I came across Kim Riddelbarger
's presentation Covenant Theology and Eschatology
, part of his long series on amillenialism.
I re-listened to it last night. Standard stuff, from my perspective, but very refreshing. He covers redemptive history, basic covenant theology, the different conceptions of what eschatology is. With, an excursus on how the land promise plays out in the New Covenant.
