Jesus was sent to the physical Nation of Israel not to the Gentiles. Matthew 15 v 24.

He answered: “I was not sent to anyone except to the lost sheep of the house of Israel.

Physical Israel could have become Spiritual Israel.  But the majority of Israel rejected Jesus and killed him. 

Matthew 22 is where Jesus spoke an illustration about a King and a Wedding feast. 

verse  2. “The Kingdom of the heavens may be likened to a king who made a marriage feast for his son.  And he sent his slaves to call those invited to the marriage feast, but they were unwilling to come.

Those that were unwilling to come were the members of physical Israel, the Jews that stuck to the old traditions of the Jewish way of life.

 

 Verse 8Then he said to his slaves, ‘The marriage feast is ready, but those invited were not worthy.  Therefore, go to the roads leading out of the city, and invite anyone you find to the marriage feast.’ 10  Accordingly, those slaves went out to the roads and gathered all they found, both wicked and good; and the room for the wedding ceremonies was filled with those dining.

Those that replaced the invited guests represent those Jews who would change the way they served God, to then serve God through Christ,  and the Gentiles that would also serve God through Christ. 

So we can see that God's plan changed from physical Israel inheriting the Kingdom, to physical people of both Jewish and Gentile origin being chosen. 

verse 14 “For there are many invited, but few chosen.”

However, Jesus still came to the lost sheep of the house of Israel, only this time it is Spiritual Israel.  

This is confirmed in Revelation 5 v 9&10 

 And they sing a new song, saying: “You are worthy to take the scroll and open its seals, for you were slaughtered and with your blood you bought people for God out of every tribe and tongue and people and nation, 10  and you made them to be a kingdom and priests to our God, and they are to rule as kings over the earth.”

Yes indeed, Jesus Christ came for Israel, but it is Spiritual Israel.  

Woe to anyone that should stand in the way of Spiritual Israel or any of it's members.

For those chosen are indeed the Body of Christ.
