5 It was light from the book of Romans that scattered the darkness, light that revealed not only the great truth of Christ pardoning sinners but also the power of Christ to cleanse from sin. And it’s light from these pages that we, this quarter, will seek to uncover for ourselves as we study the great theme of salvation by faith alone as revealed in the book of Romans. Redemption in Romans Our Goal {5}

6 Redemption in Romans Lesson 11, September 11 Redemption in Romans Lesson 11, September 11 The Election of Grace

7 Key Text Romans 11:1 NKJV “I say then, has God cast away His people? Certainly not! For I also am an Israelite, of the seed of Abraham, of the tribe of Benjamin.”

8 The Election of Grace Initial Words {59} There is no corporate rejection of anyone for salvation. “There is no difference between the Jew and the Greek” (Rom. 10:12)—all are sinners and all need God’s grace. This grace comes to all—not by nationality, not by birth, and not by works of the law but by faith in Jesus, who died as the Substitute for sinners everywhere. Roles may change, but the basic plan of salvation never does.

9 The Election of Grace Quick Look 1. Israel Rejects Christ (Romans 10) 2. Israel’s Rejection Not Total (Romans 11:1-24) 3. Promise of Israel’s Restoration (Romans 11:25-36)

10 The Election of Grace 1. Israel Rejects Christ Romans 10:1-4 NKJV “They have a zeal for God, but not according to knowledge. For they being ignorant of God’s righteousness, and seeking to establish their own righteousness, have not submitted to the righteousness of God. For Christ is the end of the law for righteousness to everyone who believes.

11 1.Israel Rejects Christ The End of the Law {138} Legalism can come in many forms, some more subtle than others. Those who look to themselves, to their good deeds, to their diet, to how strictly they keep the Sabbath, to all the bad things they don’t do, or to the good things that they have achieved—even with the best of intentions— are falling into the trap of legalism.

12 1.Israel Rejects Christ The End of the Law {138} We must every moment of our lives keep before us the holiness of God in contrast to our sinfulness; that’s the surest way to protect ourselves from the kind of thinking that leads folk into seeking their “own righteousness,” which is contrary to the righteousness of Christ.

13 The moral law points out our sins, our faults, and our shortcomings and thus leads us to our need of a Savior, our need of forgiveness, our need of righteousness, all of which are found only in Jesus. 1.Israel Rejects Christ The End of the Law {138} Christ is the “end” of the law, in that the law leads us to Him. The Greek word for “end”, teloes, can be translated “goal” or “purpose.” Christ is the final purpose of the law, in that the law is to lead us to Jesus.

14 The Election of Grace 2. Israel’s Rejection Not Total Romans 11:1, 5 AMPLIFIED “I ask then, has God totally rejected and disowned His people” Of course not! Why I myself am an Israelite, a descendant of Abraham, a member of the tribe of Benjamin! So too at the present time there is a remnant (a small believing minority), selected (chosen) by grace (by God’s unmerited favor….)”

15 2. Israel’s Rejection Not Total The Election of Grace {140} In the first part of his answer to the question, “Hath God cast away his people?” Paul points to a remnant, an election of grace, as proof that God has not cast away His people. Salvation is open for all who accept it, Jew and Gentile alike. The early converts to Christianity were all Jews—for example, the group that was converted on the Day of Pentecost.

16 Two parallel expressions: (1) “their [the Israelites’] fullness” (vs. 12), and (2) “the receiving of them [the Israelites]” (vs. 15). The diminishing and the casting away to be only temporary and to be followed by fullness and reception. This is Paul’s second answer. What appears to be a casting away, he says, is only a temporary situation. 2. Israel’s Rejection Not Total The Election of Grace {142}

17 Paul likens the faithful remnant in Israel to a noble olive tree, some of whose branches have been broken off—an illustration to prove that “God hath not cast away his people”. The root and trunk are still there. Into this tree the believing Gentiles have been grafted. But they are drawing their sap and vitality from the root and trunk, which represent believing Israel. 2. Israel’s Rejection Not Total The Grafted Branch {142}

18 Romans 11:25, 26 NKJV “For I do not desire, brethren, that you should be ignorant of this mystery, lest you should be wise in your own opinion, that hardening in part has happened to Israel until the fullness of the Gentiles has come in. And so all Israel will be saved….” The Election of Grace 3. Promise of Israel’s Restoration

19 A Mystery Revealed {144} The whole tenor here is that of God reaching out to the Jews. What Paul is saying comes in reply to “Hath God cast away his people?” His answer, of course, is no, and his explanation is (1) that the blindness (Greek porosis, “hardness”) is only “in part,” and (2) that it is only temporary, “until the fullness of the Gentiles be come in.”

20 3. Promise of Israel’s Restoration A Mystery Revealed {144} What does “the fullness of the Gentiles” mean? “The fullness of the Gentiles” has come in when the gospel has been preached everywhere. The faith of Israel, manifested in Christ, is universalized. The gospel has been preached to all the world. The coming of Jesus is near. At this point, then, many Jews start coming to Jesus.

21 The Election of Grace Final Words {146} God’s mercy and love and grace are poured out upon sinners. From even before the foundation of the world, God’s plan was to save humanity and to use other human beings, nations even, as instruments in His hands to fulfill His divine will. How crucial, then, that all Christians, realizing the mercy that has been given to them in Jesus, display that mercy to others.
