When works are no more works; and grace is no more grace

I say then, 'Hath God cast away His people?' God forbid. For I also am an Israelite, of the seed of Abraham, of the tribe of Benjamin. God hath not cast away His people which He foreknew.

Romans 11:1-6 Set Aside, But Not Forgotten

Set Aside; But Not Forgotten Romans 11:1-6 Paul has now pointed out clearly Israel’s rejection of Jesus as Messiah. Israel is a very religious people, but lost as a nation.
