But this is NOT the end of the story for Israel. Look what Saint Paul says in Romans:

"Again I ask: Did they (Israel ) stumble so as to fall beyond recovery? Not at all! Rather, because of their transgression, salvation has come to the Gentiles to make Israel envious. But if their transgression means riches for the world, and their loss means riches for the Gentiles, how much greater riches will their full inclusion bring!
Post-Temple Judaism are those who rejected Gods invitation to dine in the Kingdom of Heaven. Their only salvation will come if they convert to the Christ."--Romans 11:11

Because DD they don't reject the Father. The Jews believe in the same Father God as the gentile church.  But you are right about about the Jews rejecting the teachings of his gentile church? That is because it is not their church it is as the name implies the church of the gentiles.
