Review and Introduction:
Last week we closed out with Doug Moo’s observation:
- “Israel’s exclusion from God’s people as a result of the gospel does not constitute a departure from the OT. Quite the contrary, Paul here implies: Israel’s stumbling over Christ was predicted in the OT” – Doug Moo.
To help tease this out, we looked at Paul’s personal experience.
- He witnessed first hand the stumbling of the Jews over Jesus Christ.
- He witnessed first hand believing Gentiles coming to Christ and being joined to the remnant of Israel.
