11/12/23 Romans 11 Overview: Israel and the Return of Christ
Romans chapters 9-11 are about Israel. As we head into Romans 11, it is important to be consistent with how Paul, himself a Jew, has clearly and consistently defined Israel throughout the book of Romans. Only those who are inwardly circumcised through the work of God, received by faith, are truly Israelites. Jesus is the offspring of Abraham, and all those who believe the Gospel, ethnic Jews and ethnic Gentiles, and therefore in Christ, are the offspring of Abraham.
