Does the apostle Paul in Romans 11 differ from how he is represented in Acts 28:16-31 on how he views the response of Jews to the gospel? This essay argues that the differences do not contradict each other but rather are complementary. In both cases Paul sees a mixed response among Jews, the developing of a faithful remnant, and the matter of "provoking to jealousy" as a critical element.
This article concerns itself with Romans 11:26-27. It is argued here that Paul’s Old Testament citation in this passage includes Isaiah 2:3, Isaiah 27:9, Isaiah 59:20-21.

Do the Jews have a special future? This article answers this question by addressing the question of identity - who is a Jew? Romans 11 shows that one is a Jew by God's election and calling, and that Jews are grafted in as they believe in Jesus. Jews identified in terms of race apart from Christ have no special place in God's kingdom.
