The Christian's Debt of Gratitude to the Jews

question-mark-g1bce39097_1920.jpg
  • To the Jews belong the adoption, the glory, the covenants, the giving of the law or Torah, the worship and the promises. (Romans 9:4)

  • To the Jews belong the Patriarchs, and from their race, according to the flesh, is the Messiah, Who is God over all, blessed forever. Amen. (Romans 9:5)

  • The Jews have faithfully preserved the Old Testament, their Holy Scriptures, which Jesus-Yeshua and the apostles, being Jewish, quoted from extensively.

  • The continued existence of the Jews is a proof that God exists and that He does not break His promises!

  • The Jews have survived many trials and tribulations, proof that God has never broken His covenant with them or rejected them. (Romans 11:1)

  • Salvation is available now for non-Jews but salvation is still of the Jews (John 4:22).

  • So I ask, did the Jews stumble in order that they might fall? By no means! Rather through their trespass salvation has come to the Gentiles, so as to make Israel jealous (Romans 11:11).

  • The New Covenant is with the house of Israel and the house of Judah (Jeremiah 31:31) which Gentiles are also grafted into (Romans 11:17).

  • Don't be arrogant against the Jews (Romans 11:18)

***A Severe Warning to Christians about Antisemitism***

'That is true. They (the Jews) were broken off because of their unbelief, but you (Gentile non-Jews) stand fast through faith. So do not become proud, but fear. 
For if God did not spare the natural branches, neither will he spare you. 
Note then the kindness and the severity of God: severity toward those who have fallen, but God's kindness to you, provided you continue in his kindness. Otherwise you too will be cut off. 
And even they, if they do not continue in their unbelief, will be grafted in, for God has the power to graft them in again. 
For if you were cut from what is by nature a wild olive tree, and grafted, contrary to nature, into a cultivated olive tree, how much more will these, the natural branches, be grafted back into their own olive tree.' (Romans 11:20-24)
