HFW: Romans 11:11-15

We're working through a study this summer to celebrate Ephesians 3:10:

So that the manifold wisdom of God might be made known through the church to rulers and authorities in the heavenly places.

This series will run from June 22-August 30, with four readings per week.

This week (6), the third reading is Romans 11:11-15. After reading this text, answer the following questions, then you can watch the video for a 5:00 thought from the text. (I recommend you work in the text first before watching the video. However, be aware, the video is not intended to be the back of an algebra book--supplying answers to the questions--but rather, is just sharing some thoughts from the text.)

    1. How has the Jewish rejection of Jesus resulted in our hearing the gospel?
    2. Though Paul is an apostle to the Gentiles, what was his attitude toward Israel?
    3. Who was Paul primarily speaking to with the book of Romans?
    4. What is being accomplished by this message?
    5. How could this result in Jewish salvation?
