Posted by Tim Thompson on

I know the Jewish people are called the chosen ones, but why don’t they believe Jesus is the Savior? Also, does that mean they won’t be accepted into heaven? What a great question! And it leads to an interesting conundrum, both Jews and Christians claim the revelation of God found...
