- Two types of Israelites (vv. 6-13):
- The Israelites of the flesh
- The Israelites of the promise – the children of God.
- God is righteous, sovereign, and can show mercy and compassion on whomever He chooses (vv. 14-21).
- God chose to show mercy and compassion on the Gentiles, making them His beloved children (vv. 22-26).
- A remnant of Israel will yet be saved (vv. 27-29).
- So far, they have not attained righteousness because they sought it the wrong way (law vs. Christ – vv. 30-33).
OVERVIEW – Romans 10
- Paul prayed for the Jews to be saved (v. 1).
- Their misguided zeal for God (vv. 2-5).
- Salvation through confessing and believing (vv. 6-11).
- Salvation for the Jews is the same as for the Gentiles (vv. 12-15; Gal. 3:28-29; Eph. 2:14-16; 1Pet. 2:9).
- The message needs a messenger (v. 14).
