Romans 11:13-36

As we finish up Romans chapter 11 today, we close out this section of Romans we’ve entitled the “Synagogue of Israel.” If you do a quick breeze through the book of Acts, you will see that Paul the apostle would first visit the local synagogue and give them first “dibs” on the good news.  When…

Romans 10:14-21; 11:1-12

While Paul is specifically burdened for the salvation of his own people, the Jews, this section of Romans has broad application, even to us today! Romans 10:14-17 has lit the fire under the “missionary movement” of the church for centuries. However, at times the fire for missions has been burning hotter than others. What is…

Romans 10:5-13

In many ways Christians over the centuries have been guilty of making salvation a complex matter. In this continuing study through Romans 9-11, as Paul speaks directly to his fellow countrymen, the Jews, to beg them to be reconciled to God, he breaks down salvation as simply as it possibly can be represented. Specifically, verse…

Romans 9:25-33; 10:1-4

As we continue studying Paul’s concern for his Jewish countryman in Romans chapter 9 you might say, “I’m not a Jew, so who cares!?” Well, given that the mistake the Jews were making is one that people today can make it’s important for us to listen in and understand. Have you heard the saying, “So…

Romans 9:1-24

Having reached the summit of God’s grace at the end of Romans chapter eight we concluded that “nothing can separate us from the love of God.” Chapter nine moves us into the next section — comprising chapters 9-11— a section we’re calling the “Synagogue of Israel.” Now we will see how God’s grace includes His…

Romans 3:1-20

As Paul completes the full circle of his argument that all have sinned, he starts Romans three by rhetorically answering questions he knew would come up from those who wanted to find flaws in the argument. However, he ends with a heavy charge: “they are all under sin,” using passages from the Old Testament to…

Acts 28:11-31

In this final message from our study through Acts, we are told of their final journey into Rome after the horrific storm and shipwreck, causing them to winter at Malta. There in Rome Paul is under house arrest with some freedom, and spends time with the believers there as well as talking to the Jewish…

Acts 23:12-35; 24:1-9

Continuing the story of Paul’s fateful trip to Jerusalem in Acts 23, a murderous plot is uncovered by a young relative, who brings it to the commander and Paul, leading to a late night military escort to get Paul safely out of Rome, and to Caesarea, the seat of Roman military leadership. The governor, Felix,…

Acts 15:1-21

Acts chapter 15 opens as Paul and Barnabas have returned to Antioch from their missionary journey, and now some Jews have come and started to teach that Gentile believers must be circumcised and fall under the law of Moses to be saved! Of course this flies in the face of what Paul and Peter have…
