SCOFIELD, Til Kingdom Come part 2
We are the children of Israel, since we have accepted Jesus, the Jewish Messiah. But He is not exclusively just for the Jewish people. He’s for all mankind.
I would offer a parable Jesus told Himself, which refers to this question. Mark 12:
“1. A certain man planted a vineyard, and set an hedge about it, and digged a place for the winefat, and built a tower, and let it out to husbandmen, and went into a far country. And at the season he sent to the husbandmen a servant, that he might receive from the husbandmen of the fruit of the vineyard. And they caught him, and beat him, and sent him away empty.
There’s a picture of almost the whole Old Testament. The Jewish people were at war with God and His prophets throughout their history.
4 And again he sent unto them another servant; and at him they cast stones, and wounded him in the head, and sent him away shamefully handled. And again he sent another; and him they killed, and many others; beating some, and killing some. Having yet therefore one son, his wellbeloved, he sent him also last unto them, saying, They will reverence my son.
Here’s a clear reference to Jesus, whom the Jewish leaders made sure Pontius Pilate crucified. He was set on letting Him go, but they insisted.
7 But those husbandmen said among themselves, This is the heir; come, let us kill him, and the inheritance shall be ours.
This is a very interesting point here. Jesus says that they knew who He was, that He was the Messiah. But they were more interested in their physical kingdom and wealth than in receiving God’s son.
8 And they took him, and killed him, and cast him out of the vineyard. What shall therefore the lord of the vineyard do? he will come and destroy the husbandmen, and will give the vineyard unto others.
This is also a prophetic message of what was to happen. The Kingdom of God was given to the gentiles and is available to all. The Jewish people, particularly this generation will die in 40 years when the Romans invade and put down their rebellion. Only the Jewish people, like the early disciples and His followers found salvation.
10 And have ye not read this scripture; The stone which the builders rejected is become the head of the corner: This was the Lord's doing, and it is marvellous in our eyes?
Salvation is for all, Jew and Gentile. No one group can claim any special consideration. The Jews brought the truth via Moses and Israel and many prophets and a few kings, but for the most part, they were wayward and stiff-necked and uncircumcised in heart.
One last verse from Romans. Paul argues the point about Jewish salvation without receiving their Messiah at length in this book.
“For he is not a Jew, which is one outwardly; neither is that circumcision, which is outward in the flesh: 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 in not of men, but of God.” Romans 2:28-29
