Seems to me the bigger problem is the common jump from Israel to Church. I think what Marcus does with Israel to Jesus and then onwards is much healthier...

yeah, but the basic issue is this: why does what the NT says about Jesus mean he is replacing Israel, rather than simply identifying with and representing her? Read the Horner book I've cited on your blog and you will (I think and hope) get the drift...

It's more that he IS Israel more than replacing her. He is Abraham's son, he is God's son etc.

OT Israel is a shadow of him, rather than him as a representation of her.
