But there’s a lingering question that deserves asking: Does this missional reading of "covenant" imply either that most of Israel didn’t understand this or that Israel simply failed in its missional task? Or, is this a hermeneutical issue? Namely, do we learn to see the missional theme because of what we see in the Church? ~ linkIndeed -- a fine question. Can we chalk the whole Hebrew inertia to stubborness regardng their participation in God's worldwide plan or did they just not "get it" because this emphasis is only visible looking through the rear-view mirror as adjusted by Jesus and the apostles?
