Some try to merge the Church into being the same or somehow tied into being Israel. This is denied by a passage like it is here:
Heb 13:12 Wherefore Jesus also, that he might sanctify the people with his own blood, suffered without the gate.
Heb 13:13 Let us go forth therefore unto him without the camp, bearing his reproach.
There is a difference or there would be no reproach. The Apostle Paul was constantly being persecuted because of this. There is a clear difference.
