Different Meanings

We the People: Israel and the Catholicity of Jesus,
Tommy Givens, Fortress, 2014, page 271

Picking up on Brueggemann's comment about Israel's covenant having different meanings for different people, Tommy Givens confirms and illustrates this idea:

The intimate, ongoing encounter between Israel and the Gentiles - the ebb and flow of Israel's election through the covenant drama - meant a continuity for Israel that it did nor mean for its hostile Gentile neighbours, for whom it meant a decaying discontinuity, as Gentile powers superseded their Gentile predecessors one after the other.
