Goldingay: The Church and Israel

The church relates to God on the basis of the fact that Yhwh had been at work in Israel; “salvation is from the Jews” (John 4:22). The church can never grow out of or escape its indebtedness to the Jewish people. Yhwh’s relationship with Israel remains the model for Yhwh’s relationship with the church.
