indeed. but more specifically, the lineage/nation of israel was that which was cut off. SPIRITUAL israel has remained even until now. why
christians refuse to accept that "there are no jews nor greek" anylonger, i have no idea. reminds me of how the pharisees were chasing a dream that
Jesus would reign on a literal throne. HEY! yet another problem of evangelicals... taking spritual scriptures and making them fit into a carnal,
anywho, to answer directly, there is no real way to find out who is of the lineage of the jews. the jews of old were fairly dark skinned. now we
have all these "euro-jews" and only some middle-eastern jews (not to say that darker skin affirms them to be of the lineage). maybe they got the
same thing michael jackson has? or maybe their bloodlines are just that washed out.
i think the more important issues lie in how the "current" jewish people and their palestinian neighbors treat their fellow human beings. who cares
what religion or bloodline someone is if theologies are being trampled on and blood is flowing in the streets?
c'est la vie. so long as evangelicals, extremist jews/muslims remain, destruction (in the guise of love and God's name) will as well.
