For God has committed them all to disobedience, that He might have mercy on all. Romans 11:32

Again, Paul uses his common conjunction “for” in order to explain the previous two “mercy verses” with this concluding thought before he moves on to his stirring doxology. “For God has committed them all to disobedience” refers to the previous disobedience of the gentiles who now have obtained mercy and the currently-disobedient Jews who will obtain that same mercy.… Read the rest

even so these also have now been disobedient, that through the mercy shown you they also may obtain mercy. Romans 11:31

The reciprocal of verse 30 is now given. Placing both verses side by side will provide clarity –

For as you were once disobedient to God, yet have now obtained mercy through their disobedience,… Romans 11:30

Romans 11:30-32 are “mercy verses.” Four times in three verses the concept of God’s mercy is revealed in His dealings with man. The section begins with “for” which means that it cannot be separated from the previous thought, but instead explains it.… Read the rest

For the gifts and the calling of God are irrevocable. Romans 11:29

In context, this verse is speaking of Israel’s national election, not individual matters concerning God’s people. The word for “gifts” here, charisma, is also applied to individual gifts throughout the New Testament. Such gifts include the spiritual gifts given by God to his children for the benefit of the church – ministry, wisdom, healing, etc.… Read the rest

Concerning the gospel they are enemies for your sake, but concerning the election they are beloved for the sake of the fathers. Romans 11:28

“Concerning the gospel…” Because of their rejection of the good news (meaning Israel as is evident from the preceding verses), it is determined that the they “are enemies for your sake.”

As Paul is writing to the gentiles, this tells us that the bond of fraternal love found in Christ is severed towards those who reject Him, including those from His select and special group of people.… Read the rest
