(In 1982 I used this series in Romans as my second book to teach verse by verse: 120 lessons 1983-1985 First Baptist Church, Altoona, Kansas)

1A  THE MOST BLESSED NATION IN THE WORLD: ISRAEL
2A  GOD CHOSE ISRAEL FOR THREE REASONS
1B  To witness to the unity of God: Deut. 6:4
2B  To preserve and transmit the scripture: Romans 3:2
3B  To be the channel for the Messiah

3A  ISRAEL’S  REJECTION AND FAILURE TO BELIEVE RESULTED IN
1B  Being scattered
2B  Being blinded
3B  Being persecuted

4A  THE QUESTION IS WHY:
1B  The rejected Christ: Why?
1C  They loved their sin more than righteousness.
2D  They had always been that way from Moses.
3C   Self-imposed ignorance:
  1D  Of God Himself: 10:3
                   2D  Of The provision of Christ made for salvation: 10:4
                   3D  Of the importance of faith in Christ: 10:5-10
                   4D  Of the scope of this great salvation: 10:11-18

2013-11-23 18-38-55.296

          1E  Salvation was for “whosoever” : 10:11.  Joel 2:32 and Isaiah 28:16
2E  Salvation:  there was no difference between Jews and Gentiles: Jonah
3E  How to get the message out to the world:   10:14
4E  The Gospel story: Beautiful feet:  10:15
5E  Not all have obeyed the Gospel!!!!  10:16
1F  There is a choice on our part!  In other words you can’t   say you are just saved because  God  made everyone saved and He is sovereign, you must make the choice to obey.
2F  The element of obedience and submission to Christ. Acts 6:7, Romans 1:5; 2:8-9; 6:19;   I Thessalonians 1:8; Hebrews 5:9
3F  They are not all believing  because they are not submitting: Isaiah 53:1; John 12:37-38; Acts 18:6
6E  “So faith by Hearing”  10:17  “and hearing by the Word of Christ.”
1F  Evangelism:  Given for you to respond to the message you hear.  But you  must know what you believe, thus the message must be the truth
7E  “Have they not heard”    10:18  Yes.  Psalms 19:1-4
1F  God has put His knowledge of Himself throughout the whole earth. It is available.
2F  It is not that every person in the world has heard the fullness of the Gospel, but if there  is a seeking heart there will be a message given to them. John 1:9, Matthew 24:14; Colossians 1:6.

Romans 10 13 word

    LET’S SUM UP ROMANS 10:11-18
Paul is saying this:  The gospel is not just for another local sect, nor just another            Roman cult. The Gospel is the good news which God has sent all over the world.
    5D  ISRAEL DID NOT BELIEVE THE PREDICTION OF SCRIPTURE
1F  Did Israel know that the message was for the whole world?  10:19
1E  Moses said in Deuteronomy 32:21
2E  Isaiah 65:1   Romans 10:20
3E  Isaiah 65:2  Romans 10:21
