20. Romans 9-11: An Overview
David Baumgaertel, one of Thrive’s alums, launches Thrive into the next part of Romans by giving an overview of Romans 9-11, a critical section of Scripture that helps unlock a big picture of the entire Bible. In these chapters Paul demonstrates that God is perfectly righteous in how He has dealt with Jews and Gentiles, and that in different ways each group is the object of God’s mercy. Along with vindicating God’s righteousness, Paul also explains that there is a future for ethnic Israel, when one day the nation will recognize Jesus as Messiah. Passages cited (or alluded to) in this message include Romans 9-11; Genesis 12:3; and Malachi 1:2-3.
