LISTEN: The Identity of the Body of Believers as Corporately Connected to Israel

Supersessionism, the doctrine that the church now supersedes Israel and is now the elect of God while ethnic Israel, the Jewish people, no longer have election, is rooted in a profound misunderstanding of the identity of the body of believers (the church).

Click on the image below to listen to this talk, in which Daniel discusses the call of Messianic Jews to embrace and love the whole church while calling the people from the nations who are in the church to a profound commitment to honor their origins in Israel and to commit themselves to the destiny of Israel, which is part of their destiny.
