Thank you once again for your comments in this thread.
Beautiful in their simplicity, yet deep enough that one can glean volumes of understanding. Thank you.

On another note, I've read various opinions of Christianity being the “New Israel” but I am not at all convinced nor comfortable with the idea.
I see some here relate to this...for me it brings confusion and a host of complicated issues, and distracts from the centrality of Christ.

Have their been threads on this topic in the past? and I'd be interested in your opinion at some time convenient for you. Thank you again.

All credit goes to the Spirit of G-d.

"New Israel" smacks of supersessionism

Where Christ is central, Christianity doesn’t need be the “new” anything!
