“I say to you that many will come from the east and the west and will take their places at the feast with Abraham, Isaac and Jacob in the kingdom of heaven.”

Matthew 8:11

Abraham, Isaac and Jacob, and many, many more old covenant saints, lived by faith. Because of Jesus death they will receive the promised eternal inheritance (Heb.9:15). The ‘many’ that ‘will come from the east and the west’’ to share that eternal inheritance with them will be Gentiles, like the Centurion in Matthew 8. Every one of them, redeemed by Christ’s blood under the new covenant. Praise God!
