Replacement Theology?

Someone asked me do I believe the Church replaced Israel.

I answered:

God's promises about Israel weren't fulfilled in the Church instead of in Israel - but neither have the promises about Israel been delayed until the future.

Rather, the promises about Israel were fulfilled on the ground in Israel, among Israelis and for Israelis first; then afterwards the promises which were about Gentiles were fulfilled in the experience of Gentiles - and together, those who believed and experienced what was promised, formed the Church, which is His body: and that was exactly the scenario which had been foreseen by the Prophets!
