Good question and here is a good answer: They were given a choice to accept Jesus Christ as Messiah, King, and High Priest and chose not to and fell(Rom. 11), the Jewish-Gentile Body was called through Paul, not Peter, James and John(Ephesians 3)to provoke the Jews to jealousy. With right division you end up with the truth and understanding, without it you end up with Roman Catholicism and the Christian Talmud of semi-Catholic "fundamentalists" running around preaching the "gospel" of Peter, James, and John "to all the world" without signs following.
