The church is israel and israel is the church v2

  1. 1. The Church is Israel and Israel is the Church
  2. 2. In our Bibles today: • Old Testament: Hebrew translated to Greek (Septuagint LXX) translated to English. • New Testament: Greek translated to English. • Studying the scriptures in their original language is key to understanding God’s plan of salvation for humankind thru Jesus (Yeshua).
  3. 3. Israel Assembly or Congregation
  4. 4. Example: Deuteronomy 23:3
  5. 5. Examples
  6. 6. Ekklesia in the Old Testament (LXX)
  7. 7. Ekklesia in the New Testament
  8. 8. Ekklesia = Assembly = Congregation = Church • The same greek word Ekklesia is used in both the LXX and the New testament. • Then why is it not translated consistently Assembly or Congregation or Church throughout the Bible?
  9. 9. Jesus was sent only to the house of Israel • Jesus said: • Matthew 15:24 “I was sent only to the lost sheep of the house of Israel.” • John 10:14-16 I am the good shepherd. I know my own and my own know me, just as the Father knows me and I know the Father; and I lay down my life for the sheep. And I have other sheep that are not of this fold. I must bring them also, and they will listen to my voice. So there will be one flock, one shepherd.
  10. 10. Conclusion • In Jesus we (gentile) are grafted in Israel (Romans 11:11-24). • When the fullness of the gentile has come in, then all Israel will recognize Jesus as Messiah and be saved (Romans 11:25). • For God there is only one Shepherd Jesus and only one flock faithful Israel.
