Romans 11 – 12

Romans 11 God has not permanently cast away physical Israel, but has set physical Israel aside until another time, when he will call all Israel into spiritual Israel.  So far only a few have been called out of physical Israel, as only a few have been called from the Gentiles into the New Covenant as part of a spiritual Israel.  Remember Paul is […]

Romans 9 – 10

Romans 9 Paul addresses apparent rivalries between the racial Jews and Gentiles; teaching them that it is only those who are faithfully obedient to the whole Word of God who are spiritual Jews and the children of Abraham indeed.  Therefore all who are faithfully believing and obedient to the Word of God are the true spiritual […]

Romans 3 – 4

Romans 3 Faith and Works, and the Calling of the Gentiles explained  Romans 3:1 What advantage then hath the Jew? or what profit is there of circumcision? 3:2 Much every way: chiefly, because that unto them were committed the oracles of God. This means that the Law, Prophets and Writings were given to Israel, and that […]

Romans 1 – 2

The theme of the Book of Romans is Unity With God  In Rome there were many nations and cultures, traditions and philosophies; from Gentiles to Jews; from vegetarians to teetotalers. Paul’s concern was to prevent divisions based on these superficial differences. His message was that all that really mattered was living by every Word of God. The unity […]
