Tracing the menaces facing the Jews and Israel today in the Introduction, an interesting ancient history of Israel is given in chapter 1. From Abraham to Moses, from the giving of the everlasting Abrahamic Covenant to the giving of the Law and the plan for the Tabernacle to Moses, The Jews and Israel come alive by the blessing of God as His Chosen people. Chapters 2, 3, and 4 are an exposition of Romans 9, 10, and 11. Romans chapter 9 covers Gods dealings with Israel in its past and how they have been brought into the light. God shows His choice of the Jews as his people, His wrath upon them for their disobedience, and his reaching out to them with salvation. In Romans chapter 10 Paul brings to the Jews their lost condition and that the remnant will hear the Gospel and turn to Christ while the rest of Israel will remain blinded. Chapter 11 of Romans reassures the Jews that God will always be there for them, but they will have to be provoked to jealousy seeing that salvation has come to the Gentiles. God has not forever cast off his people and one day all Israel will be saved. Chapter 5 looks at supersessionism and antisemitism. Supersessionism, or Replacement Theology says that the Covenants, Promises, and Prophesies given to Israel are now embodied in the Church, which has supplanted Israel as Gods Chosen people. Supersessionism is shown to be the root of antisemitism and todays hatred of the Jews.
