Replacement theology (supersessionism) teaches that the church is the replacement for Israel and that the many promises made to Israel in the Bible are fulfilled in the Christian church, not in Israel.

Major problems exist with this view, such as the continuing existence of the Jewish people throughout the centuries and the revival of the modern state of Israel.

If Israel has been condemned by God and there is no future for the Jewish nation, how do we explain the supernatural survival of the Jewish people over the past 2,000 years despite the many attempts to destroy them?

How do we explain why and how Israel reappeared as a nation in the 20th century after not existing for 1,900 years?

Apart from God and His power, we are selfish, and loving ourselves comes much more naturally than loving others.

We must understand that we cannot love apart from God. It is when we remain in Jesus (John 15) and the Holy Spirit remains in us that we are able to bear the fruit of love (Galatians 5:22–23).

SUNDAY STUDY: Israel and the Church are Separate - Part 2

A large and growing number of Christians hold to the position that Israel as a people and a nation has been cast off by God as a result of their rejection of Messiah Jesus. And that instead, the Christian Church has replaced Israel and is now the heir to its promises, and is the “true
