The Mission to the Jews

Oskar Skarsaune writes: “When speaking about the mission to the Jews being a closed chapter, we should be very careful to specify in which sense we speak about mission. If we mean the apostolic mission, the mission carried out by the Apostles in person, the mission to the Jews necessarily had to be a closed chapter. But so had the mission to the Gentiles, and for the same reason. If we mean, however, the ever ongoing witness to the truth of the Gospel, for which all and every Christian is responsible, neither of the two missions can be called closed chapters.”

Who are the Jews? Pope John Paul II called them our "elder brothers," but post-Temple Judaism is younger than Christianity. Even Orthodox Jews are very far from the Jews of the Bible.
