In our passage today, we see an unfortunate rejection of God’s provision for righteousness (i.e. the gospel). The gospel message had been shared with the Jewish people throughout their Old Testament Scriptures so that they are without excuse. “Yes!” - They have heard and “Yes!” – They have understood. Their Scriptures are filled with instructions pointing forward to what their Messiah would accomplish on their behalf (See Isaiah 53). Surprisingly, the Gentiles, who had none of these privileges have been responding to the gospel message for 2,000 years while the Jews, in large part, continue to reject the message. Even this was predicted in the Old Testament.
