Yes, in Galatians 2:14-16 there's a radical re-definition of “Israel” to include Gentiles as Gentiles around the Lord Jesus Christ who provides the continuity in accordance with Ephesians 2:11-22.
For instance, is the re-definition so radical as to absurdly do away with the Jew ?
Are there biblical controls ( i.e. explicit statements that trump theologising and inferences made from text) that prevent us from going as far as declaring the Jewish people’s supercession by the Church a complete and total affair ?
Well what if , for instance, there were still unfulfilled prophecies in the Old Testament (and from the New Testament as well - just for good measure) which are impossible for the Church to fulfill no matter how one 'spiritualises' or 'allegorises' them ?
Here are some examples. (Please do read what the verses say by clicking on each reference ) :
Amos 9:14-15 .
Wouldn’t or shouldn’t these Scriptures be the silver bullet fit to kill once for all the beast of Replacement Theology ?
I think they should.
