Is that why the Christians killed the Jews as Christ-killers all those centuries???

I suggest that your theology is even wackier than wacky.

Orthodox Position Re the "New Israel"
The Qahal YHWH referred to, not the entire race of the Hebrews, but only the ones who were admitted to the worshiping community centered on the tabernacle.
In the third century BC, the Jewish translators of the Septuagint usually translated qahal with the Greek word Ekklesia.
The word Qahal is regularly rendered by the Greek word Ekklesia in the Septuagint. The word Ekklesia appears 108 times in the New Testament.
In Scripture, as in the Torah, the Ekklesia was never the entire race of Israel,but the ones who were faithful to YHWH.
The promises made to Abraham were always for his believing descendants, the believing remnant faithful to the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob.
This includes not only descendants of Abraham’s family and converts from among the Gentiles.
The present Church of God (Ekklesia) is a continuation of that Church of Israel (the Qahal YHW).
At no time did the Ekklesia “replace” Israel. It includes Israel in Jesus Christ.
God did not break his oath with the descendants of Abraham. He did not violate this and start with a new people- the Gentiles.
Eastern Apologists saw the Christian Church (Ekklesia), not as a replacement, but as a continuity of the Israel Church of God (the Qahal YHW).. The Israel Church of God is its heritage.
God calls His people. People respond to this call.
In the Old Testament, the Church was the Qahal YHW. In the New Testament it is the Church of Christ, still the Qahal YHW now termed Ekklesia.
It is not a New Israel, but the Israel of God that God has gathered.
The "Church" (the Qahal YHW) already existed when Jesus began His ministry. The Church continues to be the "People of God" or the "New Israel": the PEOPLE OF THE COVENANT
The church is the "Israel of God", not a "New Israel" in terms of a replacement. The Church is the continuation of Israel. If it is called "New Israel", it is not because it no longer includes the Jewish people, but because it now includes ALL people.
Jesus Christ fulfills the blessing promised us through Abraham.
Bug Rome is not he New Israel ...And Jesus is returning to Jerusalem ..not To the new temple ..the Vatican

The believing among e Jews have not been replaced .

And Israel is,NOW, Israel the lAnd of the Jewish people ..And Jesus ....some faithful ..some not ..all will bow to Messiah at His Return..

There may have been doubt in prophecy before the in gathering ...But no excuse now ..

And hats why ..IMO..they want he deed ...

So the orthodox got the memo on the 'New Israel' also, along with the 'CC',...

I would say this is the beginning of the END or Last Day.

Anyone agree?

I hope they know we won't join them, or approve of them,...

I see no 'CC' defending their previous day declarations about wanting to rule from Jerusalem.

Maybe they came to their senses:)

You keep on trying to change Judaism to suit your Christian mania.

Jews faithful to Judaism do NOT believe that Jesus was or is a messiah.

A Jewish messiah (within all common sense theology) would be faithful ONLY to Judaism. He would come to earth as a Jew and leave earth as a Jew and live in the afterlife as a Jew for eternity with his Jewish father.

The Passion of Christ -- Or Why We Never Should Take the Christian Canon too Seriously

There is a term in NT studies.

It is the "synoptic gospels".

It refers to the first three texts in the NT.

"Synoptic" means with a single eye -- with one view.

The synoptic gospels, Matthew, Mark, and Luke, are more closely related to each other than they are to the 4th gospel, John. Even many (most?) learned apologists accept the relationship.

It goes like this: Mark was written around '70 AD -- after the fall of Jerusalem and destruction of the 2nd temple.

Matthew came next in the 80's followed not too long after by Luke, some say in the late 80's a few outliers, such as the late Burton Mack, claim it was in the very early 2nd century.

Regardless.

Matthew and Luke rely on Mark and sometimes copy from Mark verbatim. These two gospels also share another common source other than Mark. That source often is referred to as Q.

Q is short for Quelle, a German word that means source.

Q is thought to have been a "sayings gospel" similar to the extant Thomas but not actually Thomas.

Q has never been found; it is a hypothetical manuscript.

A very few critical scholars, such as Mark Goodacre, now at UNC, argue there is no Q. From Goodacre’s viewpoint, Luke merely relies on Mark and Mathew, not Mark and Q.

Fine.

But Luke's author, whether he was a physician and follower of Paul or not, was not an eyewitness to the events in his narrative. Just the opposite. In his opening sentences in that text, he admits he relies on other sources to tell his tale. Modern scholars know -- for a fact -- that one of those sources was the Gospel of Mark.

Odd that Luke's author would rely on Mark -- sometimes verbatim -- but change that text at will whenever it suited him, eh?

Yet that is exactly what he did.

So in Luke, the passion narrative is not just different in detail but also in tenor in comparison to Mark’s passion narrative – even though Luke relied on Mark for the story.

In Mark, Jesus runs the passion gauntlet in silence until, at the end, after those who were crucified with him reviled him, he cries, "Eloi, Eloi, lama sabachthani?"

(Didn't Eloi have a helpful household hints column in syndication a few years ago?)

But in Luke, though relying on Mark, things are different. Rather than suffering in silence until the end and then asking BibleGod why he has been forsaken, Jesus is rather vocal throughout the whole process.

And the two crucified with Jesus -- "malefactors" according to the KJV -- are not in accord in reviling Jesus. One mocks him but the other proclaims Jesus innocent.

And Jesus, rather than feeling "forsaken" at the end tells one of the malefactors, "To day shalt thou be with me in paradise," and then Jesus commends himself to his father: "Father, into thy hands I commend my spirit."

So much for feeling forsaken as portrayed in Mark even though Mark is Luke’s source for the story.

Lying for Jesus has a long history; Luke’s author is merely one of the earliest practitioners. But then he had a good example to follow – Mark’s author.
