No I do not have that Jewish root, even if you check my DNA but I have that Jewish spirituality simply because I am Catholic. Well I am not a theologian or expert in any religious field so I may not be saying things properly but in any case I was born with Filipino parents but I am what you can understand to be a spiritually Semite, I hope I am saying that properly.
Why is that ? Because Jesus is the messiah Jews that has been being waiting for. He came and went but the leadership of Jesus` day missed Him. God fully understand human nature and He knew that because of our PRIDE that we will miss Him. The New Covenant (The New Testament) is no longer just for Israel but for the while world. Israel failed to be the blessing for the world so God Himself came to make that happen.
