The Church and Israel (Gal. 3, 4; Eph. 4:1-6)

The people of Israel served their place in covenant history, and they are a people who are a picture of the joy of dwelling in heaven. They had a land, the Lord dwelt in their midst of the land, they had the temple, and they had a priesthood among many other things. Yet, they still did not enjoy a true heavenly rest. Is the church then in any sense the new Israel? Can the church be the new Israel? Is our position better or worse than the people of Israel as we are set apart in Christ? Please stay tuned to our sermon titled, "Israel and the Church."
