What has Israel to do with my church's call to spread the gospel and build the church? This shows how Israel's connection to the Church goes to it's root identity and calling, and has great relevance to it's involvement in the drama of world redemption.
"If some of the branches have been broken off, and you, though a wild olive shoot, have been grafted in among the others and now share in the nourishing sap from the olive root, do not boast over those branches. If you do, consider this: You do not support the root, but the root supports you." (Romans 11:17-18)
