What's the Relationship Between the Church and Israel?

27790765

We've recently embarked on the journey of climbing the Mount Everest of the New Testament, Romans 911. While there are difficult concepts to digest such as the doctrine of election, we need to keep in mind that this section is primarily concerned with the salvation of Israel and God's faithfulness to his promises.

Many of us haven't considered that question, because after all how hard is it to sit and listen. But in reality, it is difficult to listen.
