Apostle to the Gentiles
A Sermon on Romans 11:13-15
Now I am speaking to you Gentiles. Inasmuch then as I am an apostle to the Gentiles, I magnify my ministry in order somehow to make my fellow Jews jealous, and thus save some of them. For if their rejection means the reconciliation of the world, what will their acceptance mean but life from the dead? (ESV)
Reasons for focusing on the Jews; ways in which Paul magnified his ministry; his concern for both Jews and Gentiles; lessons for preachers.
