The Church in Relation to Israel
Chapters 9 through 11 of Romans stand as a witness against the unbiblical idea which has been promoted by many Christian movements down through history that in rejecting her Messiah Israel has been permanently rejected by God. We examine Paul's teaching concerning the relationship between the church and the nation of Israel. Paul makes it clear that God's sovereign plan included the rejection of Messiah by Israel, the bringing of the gospel to the Gentiles, and a yet-future restoration of the Jewish nation. Our attitude toward unbelieving Israel is to be that of love (Rom. 11:28). [1 hour 12 minutes]
