Israel remains hardened in her rejection of Jesus. God has promised that one day all Israel will be saved. But over the last two thousand years, the vast majority of Jews have rejected Jesus and will remain separated from God for eternity. In every generation a few Jews have believed, but even when the entire nation is saved, it will be but a remnant.
