NT Wright and the Rising Tide of Christian Anti-Judaism

I really like a lot of N.T Wright’s stuff. I have many of his books and I am thankful for his ministry. But I have never really agreed with SOME of his view on Israel in his writings. I have found so many young Christians that parrot him and never once ask if he can be wrong. For the record,  in Rom. 9:1-5: Paul wishes he was cut off or accursed from the Messiah so that his countrymen would know the Messiah. Paul explicitly affirms that the “covenants,” “temple service,” and “promises” still belong to Israel. This is in the present tense. Also, despite Israel’s unbelief in Jesus, “God did not reject his people, whom he foreknew” (Romans 11:2). Israel remains God’s beloved chosen people “on account of the patriarchs” (Rom. 11:28). Paul also says God’s gifts and callings to Israel are irrevocable (Rom 11:29). Also, in Romans 11, the“riches” Gentiles are experiencing now during the state of Israel’s “stumbling” will escalate with the “full number” of national Israel’s salvation (see Rom. 11:26).
