"Adonai your God has chosen you to be his own unique treasure out of all the peoples on the face of the earth." Deuteronomy 14:2

God's People and God's Land

As covered in God's Plan, God chose / called a people for himself, to live in fellowship and trust with him. And God chose a (small) place to start this work.

The Jews

The Jews were the people chosen to be God's witness to the rest of the world.
They would be blessed while they lived in obedience, but cursed if they rebelled. In both situations, they communicated God to the nations of the world. As God's chosen people, the Jews have attracted the hatred and envy of the world that did not wish to be subject to God and his just requirements

Israel

Israel is the only little bit of the earth that God gave to his chosen people, to be the place where his salvation plan would be worked out. History shows how the Jews came under the threatened curses for rebellion and were exiled from the land when they rebelled. However, the land still belonged to them under God's eternal covenant, and they were called back to it when their punishment was completed and they repented. The world has not accepted that and rejects God's view of the homeland of the Jews. Many prominent voices in the church also reject this, and adopted a theology variously described as Replacement Theology, Supercessionism etc.

Jews and Christians

God's plan for Jews and Gentiles to come together in the New Covenant, as one new man was rejected by many Gentiles and many Jews, who could not let go of their hostility and allowed it to influence their beliefs and interpretation of Scripture. The (Jewish) Christian apostle to the Gentiles, Sha'ul / Paul attempted to correct these errors and forestall the hostility and anti-Semitism that have poisoned relations between Jews and Christians. The heart of his letter to the church in Rome (climaxing in chapters 9 to 11) spelled out how Gentile believers in the Jewish Messiah are “grafted in” among the Jewish believers.

Responses to God's Plan for Jews and Christians

There has been a great move of the Spirit in the Church to recognise its proper relationship with the Jews and to repent of the errors and sins of earlier generations. The sinful attitude of the wider church towards the Jews has done great harm to the Jews and kept generations of Jews from recognising their Messiah. The church created an anti-Jewish, Gentile Christ, and persecuted Jews in his name. God is calling his Gentile church to repent and to demonstate his love to the Jews (Israel) and remove the many stumbling blocks that we have placed in front of the Jews down the generations.
