Tovia Singer got this one WRONG,
The Promise was to Abraham SEED, and not Seeds as in many, only ONE, Christ.
Galatians 3:16 "Now to Abraham and his seed were the promises made. He saith not, And to seeds, as of many; but as of one, And to thy seed, which is Christ." Galatians 3:17 "And this I say, that the covenant, that was confirmed before of God in Christ, the law, which was four hundred and thirty years after, cannot disannul, that it should make the promise of none effect." Galatians 3:18 "For if the inheritance be of the law, it is no more of promise: but God gave it to Abraham by promise."
and he got the replacement Theory Wrong also. because as said above the promise was made in Christ even before the Jews became a Nation, Galatians 3:19 "Wherefore then serveth the law? It was added because of transgressions, till the seed should come to whom the promise was made; and it was ordained by angels in the hand of a mediator." Galatians 3:20 "Now a mediator is not a mediator of one, but God is one." Galatians 3:21 "Is the law then against the promises of God? God forbid: for if there had been a law given which could have given life, verily righteousness should have been by the law." Galatians 3:22 "But the scripture hath concluded all under sin, that the promise by faith of Jesus Christ might be given to them that believe." Galatians 3:23 "But before faith came, we were kept under the law, shut up unto the faith which should afterwards be revealed." Galatians 3:24 "Wherefore the law was our schoolmaster to bring us unto Christ, (ONE MIGHT WANT TO READ THAT AGAIN), that we might be justified by faith." Galatians 3:25 "But after that faith is come, we are no longer under a schoolmaster."
this is why we have a NEW COVENANT, for God our Mediator, the Lord Jesus, the Ordinal Last, is out TEACHER and GUIDE in all TRUTH. this is why in Jeremiah 31:31 "Behold, the days come, saith the LORD, that I will make a new covenant with the house of Israel, and with the house of Judah:"Jeremiah 31:32 "Not according to the covenant that I made with their fathers in the day that I took them by the hand to bring them out of the land of Egypt; which my covenant they brake, although I was an husband unto them, saith the LORD:" Jeremiah 31:33 "But this shall be the covenant that I will make with the house of Israel; After those days, saith the LORD, I will put my law in their inward parts, and write it in their hearts; and will be their God, and they shall be my people." Jeremiah 31:34 "And they shall teach no more every man his neighbour, and every man his brother, saying, Know the LORD: for they shall all know me, from the least of them unto the greatest of them, saith the LORD: for I will forgive their iniquity, and I will remember their sin no more."
so another ERROR by the Rabbi. Israel is not to teach other Nations.... that's God, the Lord Jesus job. that's why he is given, or was poured out on Pentecost. for the Holy Spirit is our TEACHER, and GUIDE, that's why he is Called the Spirit of GRACE and SUPPLICATIONS, supportive scripture, Romans 8:26 "Likewise the Spirit also helpeth our infirmities: for we know not what we should pray for as we ought: but the Spirit itself maketh intercession for us with groanings which cannot be uttered."
that's God our mediator, who is the Lord JESUS, our "advocate", who is the intercessor. for the term "advocate" in the Greek is
G3875 παράκλητος parakletos (pa-ra'-klee-tos) n.
1. (properly) one called near (to give help).
2. an intercessor (one who entreats of behalf of another).
3. a comforter.
KJV: advocate, comforter
yes, the SEED that was promise Abraham, God himself ..... the ARM of God in Flesh. yes, Jesus who is God, (Spirit), FATHER/OT, the Ordinal First. and God, Jesus "SHARED" Equally in (Flesh), Son/NT, the Ordinal Last.
and God taught us as MAN to MAN, for he is our EXAMPLE. .... Hear ye him.
so, there was never a replacement theory, and the Jews was never a Teacher and Guide to the World..... God is, by dwelling in us.
for we are a Royal Priesthood not of the Levitical Order but of the universal order of Melchisedec, the King of righteousness, (Salem), and the Prince of PEACE, as Isaiah 9:6 states.
so no Replacement Theory, no Jewish teaching, and (those in Christ, Jesus, born again), are his Priest, supportive scripture, 1 Peter 2:9 "But ye are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, an holy nation, a peculiar people; that ye should shew forth the praises of him who hath called you out of darkness into his marvellous light:"
we who is called out of EGYPT in Christ, and again the Rabbi got Matthews wrong also. we are the CHOSEN ONES. for who is a JEW? let's check the record. Romans 2:28 "For he is not a Jew, which is one outwardly; neither is that circumcision, which is outward in the flesh:" Romans 2:29 "But he is a Jew, which is one inwardly; and circumcision is that of the heart, in the spirit, and not in the letter; whose praise is not of men, but of God."
so the Rabbi has no clue who is God "Son" either.
