Romans: Israel's Fall

From the beginning of the letter to the Church in Rome, Paul wanted to prove that the gospel of God is good news sent by the God of the Old Testament, and thus good news that was promised beforehand through His prophets in the Holy Scriptures. Indeed, for Paul there can be no good news in Christ unless what God has done in Christ is part of one master plan that the Old Testament reveals to us. It is for this reason that Paul talks about Israel’s role in light of the good news of Christ.
