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 10, September 4 Redemption in Romans Lesson 10, September 4 Redemption for Jew and Gentile

7 Key Text Romans 9:18 NKJV “Therefore He has mercy on whom He wills, and whom He wills He hardens.” “So you see, God chooses to show mercy to some, and he chooses to harden the hearts of others so they refuse to listen.” NLT

8 Redemption for Jew and Gentile Initial Words {124} God is the One who carries the ultimate responsibility of evangelizing the world. Therefore, why can He not choose as His agents whomever He wills? So long as God cuts no one off from the opportunity of salvation, such an action on God’s part is not contrary to the principles of free will.

9 Redemption for Jew and Gentile Quick Look 1. Paul’s Sorrow (Romans 9:1-5) 2. God’s Sovereignty (Romans 9:6-29) 3. Israel Seeks Righteousness (Romans 9:30-33)

10 Redemption for Jew and Gentile 1. Paul’s Sorrow Romans 9:1-5 NKJV “I have great sorrow and continual grief in my heart. For I could wish that I myself were accursed from Christ for my brethren … who are Israelites, to whom pertain the adoption, the glory, the covenants, the giving of the law, the service of God, and the promises; of whom are the fathers and from whom, according to the flesh, Christ came….”

11 1.Paul’s Sorrow His Burden {125} God needed a missionary people to evangelize a world steeped in paganism, darkness, and idolatry. He chose the Israelites and revealed Himself to them. It was God’s purpose that by the revelation of His character through Israel, the world should be drawn unto Him.

12 1.Paul’s Sorrow His Burden {125} Through the teaching of the sacrificial service, Christ was to be uplifted before the nations, and all who would look unto Him should live. As the numbers of Israel increased, as their blessings grew, they were to enlarge their borders until their kingdom should embrace the world.

13 1.Paul’s Sorrow His Burden {125} The promise made to Israel had not completely failed. There exists a remnant through whom God still aims to work. God has always been selective: (1) God did not choose all the seed of Abraham to be His covenant, only the line of Isaac. (2) He did not choose all of the descendants of Isaac, only those of Jacob.

14 Redemption for Jew and Gentile 2. God’s Sovereignty Romans 9:21-24 NKJV “Does not the potter have power over the clay, from the same lump to make one vessel for honor and another for dishonor? What if God, wanting to show His wrath and to make His power known … and that He might make known the riches of His glory … even us whom He called, not of Jews only, but also of Gentiles?”

15 2. God’s Sovereignty Elected {127} “The elder shall serve the younger. … Jacob have I loved, but Esau have I hated.” (9:12, 13) He is here speaking of particular roles God was calling upon certain individuals to play. God wanted Jacob to be the progenitor of the people who would be His special evangelizing agency in the world. There is no implication in this passage that Esau could not be saved.

16 2. God’s Sovereignty Mysteries {129} “He has mercy on whom He wills, and whom He wills He hardens.” (9:18) God’s revelation of Himself in the plagues of Egypt and in the deliverance of His people was designed to reveal to the Egyptians, as well as to other nations, that the God of Israel indeed was the true God.

17 2. God’s Sovereignty Mysteries {129} It was designed to be an invitation for the peoples of the nations to abandon their gods and to come and worship Him. Obviously Pharaoh had already made his choice against God, so that in hardening his heart God was not cutting him off from the opportunity of salvation. The hardening was against the appeal to let Israel go.

18 Romans 9:30-32 NKJV “What shall we say then? That Gentiles who did not pursue righteousness, have attained to righteousness, even the righteousness of faith; but Israel, pursuing the law of righteousness, has not attained to the law of righteousness. Why? Because they did not seek it by faith, but as it were, by the works of the law.” Redemption for Jew and Gentile 3. Israel Seeks Righteousness

19 Stumbling {133} The Gentiles whom God had accepted had not even been striving for such acceptance. They had been pursuing their own interests and goals when the gospel message came to them. Grasping its value, they accepted it. God declared them righteous because they accepted Jesus Christ as their Substitute. It was a transaction of faith.

20 The problem with the Israelites was that they stumbled at the stumbling stone (see Romans 9:33). Some, not all (see Acts 2:41), refused to accept Jesus of Nazareth as the Messiah whom God had sent. He did not meet their expectations of the Messiah; hence, when He came, they turned their backs on Him. 3. Israel Seeks Righteousness Stumbling {133}

21 Redemption for Jew and Gentile Final Words {133} “I lay in Sion a stumblingstone and rock of offence: and whosoever believeth on him shall not be ashamed” (Romans 9:33). How crucial true faith is in the plan of salvation. A rock of offense? And yet, whoever believes in Him shall not be ashamed? For many, Jesus is a stumbling block, but for those who know Him, and love Him, He is another kind of rock, “the rock of my salvation” (Psalm 89:26).
