As it is written:
“Behold, I lay in Zion a stumbling stone and rock of offense, And whoever believes on Him will not be put to shame.” Romans 9:33

To close out chapter 9 of this precious book, Paul returns one last time to Scripture – “As it is written.” Time and again, Paul reaches into the very words which his people relied on for their establishment and continuance as a group.… Read the rest

Why? Because they did not seek it by faith, but as it were, by the works of the law. For they stumbled at that stumbling stone. Romans 9:32

The question is, “Why has Israel, pursuing the law of righteousness, not attained to the law of righteousness?” The answer is found in how they pursued the law.… Read the rest

And as Isaiah said before:
“Unless the Lord of Sabaoth had left us a seed, We would have become like Sodom, And we would have been made like Gomorrah.” Romans 9:29

Again Paul cites Scripture to support the argument he is making. In verse 27, he showed that because of Israel’s disobedience, only a remnant would be saved.… Read the rest
