    Rom 11:16-18 If the part of the dough offered as firstfruits is holy, then the whole batch is holy; if the root is holy, so are the branches. If some of the branches have been broken off, and you, though a wild olive shoot, have been grafted in among the others and now share in the nourishing sap from the olive root, do not boast over those branches. If you do, consider this: You do not support the root, but the root supports you.

    That is there is nothing inherently unholy about being Jewish. Judaism, in its Biblical form is compatible with Biblical Christianity. As a counter example consider Islam. Islam is incompatible with Biblical Christianity. But, as in the case of Paul, one can be both a Jew and a Christian. Furthermore Judaism is the root of Christianity, Christ himself being incarnate as a Jew, Christianity being "built on the foundation of the apostles and prophets, with Christ Jesus himself as the chief cornerstone." Eph 2:20

    The branches broken off are the unbelieving Jews. The wild branch are non-Jews who have rejected their root faith - be it Islam, Hinduism or whatever, opting rather for Biblical Christianity which is rooted in Judaism. Therefore let not Christians devalue Judaism unnecessarily, for "All Scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness" 2Tim 3:16

    The Jews accepted Christ as the Messiah. The rest God removed from Israel. And they exist as a body only because of their hatred and rejection of Christ.
