So Andrew (and Happy New Year by the way), are you now saying that the supposed narrative of a restored Israel never took place, and that Paul’s hopes failed to materialise? (Peter”s also?). In which case I’m still struggling to see what the nations were supposed to place their faith in, in order to be justified.
This is a request for clarification, not a deliberate misreading. I found your argument difficult to follow, and need it broken into some smaller chunks.
How does this affect the Ephesians passage of the previous post, which you seem to have abandoned. Your argument here seems to me to contradict what you were saying there.
