Contrary to the opinion which is erroneously held by many American Christians, and the Jews themselves, the Bible seems to indicate that the flesh Jews lost the Kingdom, and their status as God's "chosen people" or "chosen race", when they rejected Jesus Christ. In speaking to the unbelieving Jews of His day, Jesus Himself said: "Therefore say I unto you, The kingdom of God shall be taken from you, and given to a nation bringing forth the fruits thereof." Matthew 21:43, KJV The Apostle Peter, in writing to the Christian brethren of the First Century, tells us plainly that this new nation is the worldwide invisible nation of believers in Jesus Christ: "But ye are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, an holy nation, a peculiar people; that ye should shew forth the praises of him who hath called you out of darkness into his marvellous light:" 1 Peter 2:9, KJV Please note again, that Peter is writing to the Christian brethren, and not to the unbelieving Jews who rejected Christ. Thus, according to God's Word, we Christians are now the Chosen People of God; and this new nation is comprised of both Jews and Gentiles who trust in Jesus for their Salvation.
