Sorting Out The Kids | Romans 9:7-13 | Week 53
Last week, we saw that “not all Israel is of Israel,” meaning that NOT all of the physical descendants of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob have put their faith in God’s Messiah. This week, Paul is going to address the common misconception of the Jew of his day involving their physical lineage from Abraham. The Jew of Paul’s day incorrectly assumed that they were getting into the Kingdom through their physical relationship to Abraham. Paul is going to use the history of the Old Testament in the selection of the patriarchs to show them that the physical birth principle for salvation has NEVER been in God’s plans.
