Today’s video brings his study of the Jewish people up through today’s population, and there are many reasons to particularly focus on them.

First, they are Jesus’s family; God has proven himself faithful through the millennia as he has always preserved a remnant of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob’s children just as he had promised.
