78. To which people does Jesus belong as a person?

He belongs to the people of Israel, whom God has chosen from among all nations, with whom He made a covenant and from which He announced the Messiah as King and Saviour.

  • Salvation is of the Jews. (John 4:22)
  • Who are Israelites, to whom pertain the adoption, the glory, the covenants, the giving of the law, the service of God, and the promises; of whom are the fathers and from whom, according to the flesh, Christ came. (Romans 9:4-5)
