Why do Christians screw us into thinking that the OT was just for Jews and the NT is for 'the world'? It's that faulty thinking at work again, saying that Jee-zus died for the world, and before that it was a Jews only club. That was NEVER the case. And as such, there HASN'T been a change in demographics. For the record, it was Jews and goyim believers before, and it's Jews and goyim believers, now. Even Yeshua said, "First unto the Jews, and then also unto the Gentiles." You're falling for that old lie of the 'c'hurch again. It taints your whole line of thinking where the gospel is concerned... because it's not a change from what came before. What came before was for all who would recieve, and the same is true, now.
Yes, but....the OT Jews were of the opinion it was Jews-Only, Goyim need not apply. Yes, the "foreigner living with you" could participate, but ONLY if they agreed to follow the Law - remember in Acts where everybody was sort of appalled that Paul was preaching to Goyim?
I'm still trying to gel my thoughts here.......not saying they're *right* (because they probably aren't!), but......I'll post later - I gotta get a little more work done, first.
