The Differences Between Israel & the Church…Yes it Matters!

The Differences Between Israel & the Church…Yes it Matters!
Here are a few (or a little more than a few) differences between Israel and the Church that we easily find in Scripture when we rightly divide the text of the Bible. This is important to understand, for a failure to do so may lead us to except the faulty views of replacement theology. What’s that? well…here is a quick definition that should help:
 
Replacement theology (also known as supersessionism) essentially teaches that the church has replaced Israel in God’s plan. Adherents of replacement theology believe the Jews are no longer God’s chosen people, and God does not have specific future plans for the nation of Israel. Among the different views of the relationship between the church and Israel are the church has replaced Israel (replacement theology), the church is an expansion of Israel (covenant theology), or the church is completely different and distinct from Israel (dispensationalism/premillennialism).

Replacement theology teaches that the church is the replacement for Israel and that the many promises made to Israel in the Bible are fulfilled in the Christian church, not in Israel (from Got Questions here).

 
We will look into this more in the days ahead, but here is the chart that will help you see the differences between the church and Israel.
