Homiletical Proposals for Romans 11

Here of late I have been doing some work dealing with Romans 11, in how the apostasy of the nation of Israel sent froth God’s mission to save the Gentiles. Then deal with how God’s mission will go back to His nation, and the future of Israel. I’ll be posting some thoughts, writings, etc. dealing with the chapter over the next month. I was going to post my translation and Greek work, however I guess WordPress bloggin does not work with that, so forget that idea. For the mean time, here are some homiletical proposals for those that are teachers and preachers of the Word. While… at least they are what I’d do if I was preaching on this passage.
