Riches of the Gentiles
A Sermon on Romans 11:11-12
Gentiles Grafted In
So I ask, did they stumble in order that they might fall? By no means! Rather, through their trespass salvation has come to the Gentiles, so as to make Israel jealous. Now if their trespass means riches for the world, and if their failure means riches for the Gentiles, how much more will their full inclusion mean! (ESV)
Reasons why the Jews were permitted to stumble at the Gospel; the enrichment of the Gentiles; the meaning of 'diminishing' and 'fulness'.
