BOTH MADE ONE
“For He is our peace, who hath made both one, and hath broken down the middle wall of partition between us,”
The idea that national Israel still holds a favored son status in God’s purpose of salvation runs contrary to the clear testimony of Scripture. The very core message of God’s Word is that God has preserved Israel in His covenant mercies in order to bring His Son Jesus Christ from her midst to accomplish salvation for His True Israel (elect sinners from every nation) - Romans 9:4-8.
That being done, Christ has by His ONE SACRIFICE not only put away all the sin of His people forever (Jew and Gentile), having justified us by His shed blood and imputed righteousness, but also forever removed any distinction between us as regards race and privilege (Galatians 3:28).
