Bible 102.01 Return to Syllabus


Romans 9-11

The Implied Objection: If justification were really by faith in Jesus Christ, the Jews, God's chosen people, would have believed in Him.

Paul's answers:

  1. Not every Jew is a part of the chosen people. (9:6-29)
  2. The Jews rejected Christ because they are trying without success to be justified by works, they are ignorant of God's righteousness, and they are a disobedient and contrary people. (9:30-10:21)
  3. Some Jews, including me, have accepted Christ. (11:1-10)
  4. The Jews still can come to Christ, and probably will. (11:11- 32)


  1. On what does salvation not depend? On what does it depend?

  2. Why did Israel not succeed in fulfilling the law of Moses?

  3. What is Christ's relationship to the law? Why?

  4. What must a person confess and believe in order to be saved?

  5. What steps does Paul list that precede calling on the name of the Lord?

  6. Where does faith come from?

  7. Can a person be saved by grace and works at the same time? Why?

  8. Why were Jewish branches broken off? What was put in their place?
