We continue in our study of the book of Romans. Paul continues to speak about the relationship between national Israel and the Gentiles as he explains God’s great plan for their salvation. This is somewhat difficult and controversial as he speaks about the salvation of “all Israel.” Paul gives a warning to the Gentiles, which we need to hear. The message is entitled The Lesson of Israel’s Partial Hardening from Romans 11:11-27. We will consider these three points:
- The purpose of Paul’s ministry and the goal of gospel preaching.
- The analogy of the one tree.
- The lesson of faith (the humility and reverent fear) we need.
