A Matter of the Heart



Deuteronomy 10:16-17 Therefore circumcise the foreskin of your heart, and be stiff-necked no longer.  For the Lord your God is God of gods and Lord of lords, the great God, mighty and awesome, who shows no partiality nor takes a bribe.

Romans 2:29 but he is a Jew who is one inwardly; and circumcision is that of the heart, in the Spirit, not in the letter; whose praise is not from men but from God.

It seems to me that the Real “Jew” is one who has had an encounter with the living God. He has struggled with God and overcome the flesh and had a miraculous name change within, to “Israel”. Of course, this is just my thinking on that subject and I know there are many who think otherwise.
