God has not cast away His people whom He foreknew. Or do you not know what the Scripture says of Elijah, how he pleads with God against Israel,… saying, Romans 11:2

Paul continues to explain his emphatic response from verse 1 which answered the question, “Has God cast away His people?” That response was, “Certainly not!” To make sure we understand this, he turns around and rephrases the question as a statement – “God has not cast away His people whom he foreknew.”

In using the term “foreknew” he isn’t indicating what God has foreseen so much as what God has purposed.… Read the rest

I say then, has God cast away His people? Certainly not! For I also am an Israelite, of the seed of Abraham, of the tribe of Benjamin. Romans 11:1

But to Israel he says:
“All day long I have stretched out My hands To a disobedient and contrary people.” Romans 10:21

“I was found by those who did not seek Me; I was made manifest to those who did not ask for Me.”

This is the “no-nation” to whom the Lord was made manifest; the gentile people who weren’t even a part of the covenant community.… Read the rest

But Isaiah is very bold and says:
“I was found by those who did not seek Me; I was made manifest to those who did not ask for Me.” Romans 10:20

“But” is given to contrast the preceding verse. He was speaking of Israel and God’s need to provoke them to jealousy and to move them to anger.… Read the rest

But I say, did Israel not know? First Moses says:
“I will provoke you to jealousy by those who are not a nation, I will move you to anger by a foolish nation.” Romans 10:19

From a general statement about the universality of the going forth of the gospel, Paul now speaks only of Israel.… Read the rest
