Stumbling of the Jews

Book of Romans

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)

The second major division of the chapter; analysis of verses 11-32; the Jews' stumbling not a final fall; salvation has come to the Gentiles; to provoke the Jews to emulation.
