  • That's a loaded question! Lol. Genesis talks about God choosing Abraham and his descendants as his chosen people. The entire Old Testament is primarily about God's work among the Israelites. The New Testament is also about Israel, though deals with God's work among Gentiles too. So I guess there isn't enough room to answer your question here. :-)

  • Believers and followers of Jesus Christ are now Israel. God does not show favoritism, but accepts people from every nation on earth (Acts 10:34, 35). Israel is God's people who go forth with His Gospel throughout the world. (Acts 2:5) Israel includes we Gentiles as well.

    Read Romans 2:5-11,Romans 9:6,8; Romans 2:17, 25, 26, 28, 29; Acts 13:45-48; Galatians 3:7,29, Philippians 3:3, compare Exodus 19:6 with 1 Peter 2:9.
