Parable of the Costly Pearl

It is often assumed by many in evangelical circles that the church has somehow replaced Israel (Replacement Theology) because of her rejection of Messiah in the first century. However, a clear reading of scripture shows us otherwise.

God still has a plan for His chosen people, Israel and that plan is distinct from the Church. Jesus addresses Israel’s current position within the present Church-Age through the illustration of a hidden treasure having been set aside for a time, yet not forgotten for its future retrieval.

Join VBVMI as Pastor Wesley teaches the significance of Jesus’ parables in Matthew 13 and how the Hidden treasure explains God’s redemptive distinctions between the Church Age believers and Israel.
