    Our Messiah (John 1:41),
    the Lord Jesus Christ (2 Thessalonians 1:12),
    was born, raised, lived His earthly life, and rose as a Jew:

    Genesis 49:10
    Luke 1:32, 2:22-40
    John 1:11, 4:9, 18:35
    Acts 2:30
    Romans 1:3
    2 Timothy 2:8.

    He had a Jewish mother:

    "Mary’s genealogy is supplied in Luke 3:23-38. Dr. Henry Morris explains how we know this genealogy is Mary’s:

    Joseph was clearly the son of Jacob (Matthew 1:16, so this verse [Luke 3:23—says “son of Heli”] should be understood to mean “son-in-law of Heli.” Thus, the genealogy of Christ in Luke is actually the genealogy of Mary, while Matthew gives that of Joseph."
    https://christiananswers.net/dictionary/mary-motherofjesus.html#genealogy

    He was born King of the Jews (Luke 2:2).
    He died King of the Jews (John 19:19).
    He died for all people (John 3:15-17).
    We are one in him (Galatians 3:28).
    He is still Jewish and will remain so for ever (Revelation 5:5).

    Based on these scriptures,:

    And I will make of thee a great nation,
    and I will bless thee,
    and make thy name great;
    and thou shalt be a blessing:
    And I will bless them that bless thee,
    and curse him that curseth thee:
    and in thee shall all the families on earth be blessed.
    Genesis 12:2-3

    It hath pleased them verily;
    and their debtors they are.
    For if the Gentiles have been made
    partakers of their spiritual things,
    their duty is also to minister unto them in carnal things.
    Romans 15:27

    you can show the thousands of people who read the Baptist Board
    along with You Know Who by making a simple declaration;
    and by doing so await your blessing.

    The book which has been used in our lives

    to transform us and through it give us eternal life

    was almost completely written by Jews.

    Yes, Jews, the people the world loves to hate.

    Even Luke might have been Jewish:

    Was Luke a Gentile? | Zola Levitt Ministries .


    Praise be to God

    Who has blessed the world and us with

    a book.

    A book written by His people, the Jews.

    That at that time
    ye were without Christ,
    being aliens
    from the commonwealth of
    Israel,
    and strangers from the
    covenants of promise,
    having
    no hope,
    and
    without God
    in the world.
    Ephesians 2:12


    We
    were without Christ
    alien beings
    and strangers
    without hope
    but now
    through the blood of Christ
    we are now citizens
    in the commonwealth
    of Israel.

    Praise God that we are in Israel.

    Moses is also of the seed of Abraham.

    Physically from the seed of Abraham:

    Abraham > Isaac > Jacob > Levi > Kohath > Amram > Moses
    Exodus 6:16-20
    Thanks to Dan Birchall

    By faith Moses:
    Hebrews 11:24, 26, 28, 29

    Moses wrote of Me
    John 5:46

    Moses of Israel, seed of Abraham

    You and I are seed of Abraham our father
    Romans 4:1

    the blessing of Abraham might come on the Gentiles through Jesus Christ
    Galatians 2:14

    Praise God we together are the true Israel.

    Paul, the apostle to the Gentiles,
    Romans 11:13

    was Jewish
    Philippians 3:5

    Praise to God that not only Jesus,
    but Paul also,
    are Jewish,
    so we owe our salvation to the Jews.

    ...for to make in himself
    of twain
    one new man,
    so making peace;

    Found this on an old 2015 thread, The Israel of God


    For in Christ Jesus neither circumcision availeth any thing, nor uncircumcision, but a new creature.
    And as many as walk according to this rule, peace be on them, and mercy, and upon the Israel of God.


    In Paul’s mind there is no controversy as to the identity of the Israel of God.

    Only those Jews and Gentiles who are new creatures in Christ are the Israel of God.

    Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new.

    Only those Jews and Gentiles born of the Spirit of God are new creatures in Christ Jesus who now have the power, right and authority to worship and serve the true God.

    Jesus answered, Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born of water and of the Spirit, he cannot enter into the kingdom of God.
    6 That which is born of the flesh is flesh; and that which is born of the Spirit is spirit.


    Now this I say, brethren, that flesh and blood cannot inherit the kingdom of God; neither doth corruption inherit incorruption.

    God is a Spirit: and they that worship him must worship him in spirit and in truth
    .

    The Israel of God is spiritual, not carnal.

    For they are not all Israel, which are of Israel:

    Only those who are the promised elect according to the merciful sovereign eternal will of God are considered true Israel.

    They which are the children of the flesh, these are not the children of God: but the children of the promise are counted for the seed.

    The Kingdom of God is spiritual, not carnal.

    And when he was demanded of the Pharisees, when the kingdom of God should come, he answered them and said, The kingdom of God cometh not with observation:
    21 Neither shall they say, Lo here! or, lo there! for, behold, the kingdom of God is within you.


    Therefore, the Israel of God is the Kingdom of God since both encompass the same spiritual people.

    It has always been God’s plan to graft Gentiles into Jesus Christ, the olive tree and true vine that they, too, would be included in the Kingdom of God.

    18 Known unto God are all his works from the beginning of the world.

    James explains the prophecy of Amos 9:11-12 (as well as those of several other prophets, including Ezekiel) as being fulfilled in the calling of the Gentiles:

    And after they had held their peace, James answered, saying, Men and brethren, hearken unto me:
    14 Simeon hath declared how God at the first did visit the Gentiles, to take out of them a people for his name.
    15 And to this agree the words of the prophets; as it is written,
    16 After this I will return, and will build again the tabernacle of David, which is fallen down; and I will build again the ruins thereof, and I will set it up:
    17 That the residue of men might seek after the Lord, and all the Gentiles, upon whom my name is called, saith the Lord, who doeth all these things.
    18 Known unto God are all his works from the beginning of the world.


    Paul elaborates the mystery of God’s calling the Gentiles into the household of God (Ephesians 2) whereby He no longer distinguishes Jew from Gentile.

    In Christ they are one new man, one body:

    Wherefore remember, that ye being in time past Gentiles in the flesh, who are called Uncircumcision by that which is called the Circumcision in the flesh made by hands;
    12 That at that time ye were without Christ, being aliens from the commonwealth of Israel, and strangers from the covenants of promise, having no hope, and without God in the world:
    13 But now in Christ Jesus ye who sometimes were far off are made nigh by the blood of Christ.
    14 For he is our peace, who hath made both one, and hath broken down the middle wall of partition between us;
    15 Having abolished in his flesh the enmity, even the law of commandments contained in ordinances; for to make in himself of twain one new man, so making peace;
    16 And that he might reconcile both unto God in one body by the cross, having slain the enmity thereby:
    17 And came and preached peace to you which were afar off, and to them that were nigh.
    18 For through him we both have access by one Spirit unto the Father.19 Now therefore ye are no more strangers and foreigners, but fellowcitizens with the saints, and of the household of God;


    Furthermore, Paul explains that the literal Jewish OT Temple was a type of its antitype: the spiritual NT Temple of God comprised of both Jewish and Gentile believers in whom God dwells:

    And are built upon the foundation of the apostles and prophets, Jesus Christ himself being the chief corner stone;
    21 In whom all the building fitly framed together groweth unto an holy temple in the Lord:
    22 In whom ye also are builded together for an habitation of God through the Spirit.


    The truth of the Israel of God is not difficult to discern as it is explained by many pertinent examples throughout the New Testament, having been prophesied beforehand in the Old Testament.

    And is it not ironic that most of the explaining is done by an ex-Pharisee who had every right to glory in his flesh?

    I say then,
    Hath God cast away his people?
    God forbid.
    For I also am an Israelite,
    of the seed of Abraham,
    of the tribe of Benjamin.
    God hath not cast away his people
    which he foreknew.
    Romans 11:1-2a


    Praise God He has not cast away the Israelites.

    ... for my brethren,
    my kinsmen according to the flesh:
    Who are Israelites;
    to whom pertaineth the adoption,
    and the glory,
    and the covenants,
    and thew giving of the law,
    and the service of God,
    and the promises;
    Whose are the fathers,
    and of whom as concerning the flesh,
    Christ came,
    who is over all,
    God blessed forever. Amen.

    Praise God for the blessings He gave to the Jews.

    The True Jew!

    Romans 2:28 For he is not a Jew, which is one outwardly; neither is that circumcision, which is outward in the flesh:

    2:29 But he is a Jew, which is one inwardly; and circumcision is that of the heart, in the spirit, and not in the letter; whose praise is not of men, but of God.

    Alliance of Baptist Statement on Jewish

    "Statement on Baptist-Jewish Relations"
    Alliance of Baptists

    March 4, 1995

    Background
    Thirty years ago the Vatican document, Nostra Aetate, was adopted by the Second Vatican Council. This statement heralded a significant change in Jewish-Christian relations, first among Roman Catholics and soon thereafter among Protestant Christian bodies. As Baptists, we too have been influenced by this invitation to dialogue begun by Vatican II. Certain Baptists, persons like A. Jase Jones, Joe R. Estes, George Sheridan, Glenn Ingleheart and others, modeled out for a brief moment in time a different way to relate to the Jewish people and the Jewish faith. Regrettably, in recent years this effort at Jewish-Baptist dialogue has been reduced to a theology of conversion.

    A statement adopted Saturday, March 4, 1995, by the Alliance of Baptists
    Fifty years ago the world stood in shocked disbelief at the evidence of humankind's inhumanity to its own as the reality of places like Auschwitz-Birkenau, Treblinka, Sobibor, Belzec, Dachau, Buchenwald, Bergen-Belsen, Ravensbruck, were forever etched into conscience and history. The madness, the hatred, the dehumanizing attitudes which led to the events known collectively as the Holocaust did not occur overnight or within the span of a few years, but were the culmination of centuries of Christian teaching and church-sanctioned action directed against the Jews simply because they were Jews.

    As Baptist Christians we are the inheritors of and, in our turn, have been the transmitters of a theology which lays the blame for the death of Jesus at the feet of the Jews; a theology which has taken the anti-Jewish polemic of the Christian Scriptures out of its first century context and has made it normative for Christian-Jewish relations; a theology which has usurped for the Church the biblical promises and prerogatives given by God to the Jews; a theology which ignores nineteen centuries of Jewish development by viewing contemporary Jews as modern versions of their first century co-religionists; a theology which views the Jewish people and Jewish nationhood merely as pieces in an eschatological chess game; a theology which has valued conversion over dialogue, invective over understanding, and prejudice over knowledge; a theology which does not acknowledge the vibrancy, vitality, and efficacy of the Jewish faith.

    It is in recognition of a past and present among Baptists that is complicit in perpetuating negative stereotypes and myths concerning Jews, that we, the Alliance of Baptists meeting in convocation on March 4, 1995, at Vienna Baptist Church, Vienna, Virginia,

    Confess our sin of complicity. Confess our sin of silence.
    Confess our sin of interpreting our sacred writings in such a way that we have created enemies of the Jewish people.
    Confess our sin of indifference and inaction to the horrors of the Holocaust.
    Confess our sins against the Jewish people.
    Offer this confession with humility and with hope for reconciliation between Christians and Jews.

    We call upon all Baptists to join us in

    1. Affirming the teaching of the Christian Scriptures that God has not rejected the community of Israel, God's covenant people (Romans 11:1-2), since "the gifts and calling of God are irrevocable" (Romans 11:29);
    2. Renouncing interpretations of Scripture which foster religious stereotyping and prejudice against the Jewish people and their faith;
    3. Seeking genuine dialogue with the broader Jewish community, a dialogue built on mutual respect and the integrity of each other's faith;
    4. Lifting our voices quickly and boldly against all expressions of anti-Semitism;
    5. Educating ourselves and others on the history of Jewish-Christian relations from the first century to the present, so as to understand our present by learning from our past.
