5.16 Supplement 3
Misunderstandings of the role of the Jews in the plan of salvation.

  1. Probably the oldest misunderstanding of the role of the Jews in the plan of salvation is the so-called replacement theology. According to this, the Church is considered to have completely taken over the Jews' role in the plan of salvation, since the Jews rejected Jesus Christ as the Savior of the world and as their Messiah. However, it is not this way.
  2. The next misunderstanding is that gentile Christians should therefore not devote time and energy trying to convert Jews now, since Jesus himself will accomplish this in one day at his visible return.
  3. The third misunderstanding is somewhat the direct opposite, namely, that the Jews will take over the mission of the Church already in this age's most important final phase.

The worst thing about these three false views is that they have the effect of producing apathy in us Christians, so that we do not fully take the great commission seriously. Furthermore, they conflict with the overall biblical viewpoint.
