Is Torah Obedience a Contemptible Yoke? The Legacy of Cryptosupersessionism

On my website Rabbenu.org, I have posted a brief essay exploring what I term "cryptosupersessionism." I say there that we have inherited a submerged and entrenched cluster of presuppositions which assume the expiration of that status and those status markers which formerly pertained to the Jewish people. I also indicate that this inherited bias must be repudiated if we would walk in faithfulness to God and in solidarity with our people.

What biases about the status of Jewish religion and the theological status of the Jewish people do you recognize cling to you and your circles?
