For the Scripture says to the Pharaoh, “For this very purpose I have raised you up, that I may show My power in you, and that My name may be declared in all the earth.” Romans 9:17

Once again, Paul turns directly to the Scriptures (Exodus 9:16) to justify the statements he is making.… Read the rest

As it is written, “Jacob I have loved, but Esau I have hated.” Romans 9:13

Paul continues to make his argument concerning election directly from the fountain which is God’s word. This is a direct quote from a portion of Malachi 1:2, 3 –
