Description

Why would Paul write his longest letter to a church he had not founded or even visited?  This expositor believes the answer lies in its history, culminating in a major crisis which could have split the whole church into two denominations. Originally Jewish (Acts 2:10–11), it soon attracted Gentiles, who were left on their own when Claudius evicted all Jews (Acts 18:2).  In their absence a teaching emerged which we now know as ‘Replacement Theology’, believing that God has rejected the Jews and turned instead to the Christian Church as his chosen people on earth, a view which, alas, is now widespread.

 

Paul’s carefully argued answer shows how much believing Jews and Gentiles have in common, both in sin and salvation, in flesh and Spirit.
