The Mystery of Salvation History (Romans 11:25-32)

Paul’s point in Romans 11 is that God is not done with Israel. If they do not continue in their unbelief, they will certainly be grafted back into their own olive tree, “for God has the power to graft them in again” (Rom. 11:23). But Paul is convinced not only that they can be grafted in, but that they will be. In this sermon, Pastor Matt teaches that God has ordered history in such a way as to magnify his unfathomable mercy. His purpose, in and through Christ, is to save not only the nations but all Israel and so prove faithful to his covenant promises.
