Who are The Israelites?
A Sermon on Romans 9:4-5
They are Israelites, and to them belong the adoption, the glory, the covenants, the giving of the law, the worship, and the promises. To them belong the patriarchs, and from their race, according to the flesh, is the Christ, who is God over all, blessed forever. Amen. (ESV)
The Jews' unique relationship to God; Jews; Hebrews and Israelites; various meanings of adoption; the manifestation of God's glory; the Gentiles' share in these privileges; the tragedy of the Israelites.
