Life From the Dead
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)
The Gentiles must be humble; the Jews will be received again; the meaning of 'life from the dead'; an effect on the Gentiles; not on the Jews; not revival from a dead state; not the Resurrection; a delightful and amazing blessing.
