Israel's election, calling and history make up a big part of scripture. It could be said that they belong to the "DNA of the Bible."
But why is it then that the Christian narrative about the Messiah, Israel and the nations, often seemed to have and sometimes even still las a different “genetic structure”?
Does Israel - together with its election and promises – leave God’s stage through a side door, when Jesus appears on stage? Does a changing of roles take place, within a different story? Does the Messiah function within it as some kind of “black hole” in which the eternal election and calling of Israel disappear?
How do we read God’s way?
