Charles Ryrie, noted Dispensationalist, said that “A dispensationalist keeps Israel and the church distinct" and stressed that "This is probably the most basic theological test of whether or not a person is a dispensationalist.”
So, does the New Testament affirm this notion? Can we find the overwhelming support we might hope for if this is, indeed, what the Scriptures teach?
Instead, we find the exact opposite. Here in Ephesians chapter 2, starting in verse 11 and going through verse 21 we read that Jews and Gentiles have now been made into one new entity known as the Church.
