Questions: 1. Is the peace in view here in any way referencing the peace we have with Yahweh? Or is it entirely peace between the two constiuiant parties of the "new man" (Jew and Gentile). The "peace" seems to refer to both parties, but the "hostility" seems to refer to our position before God. See the difference between vs 15 and 16. 2. In light of what's seen here, how should Christians think about and treat nonbelieving Jews? As though they are the same as other unbelieving peoples? Or with some kind of evangelistic priority, as in the early church? Those who opposed Paul elsewhere were basically left behind in the advancement of the Gospel (see Acts 18:6). Those who are Jews only in the flesh are sometimes labeled as being "of Satan." (Rev 2:9, 3:9). Yet at times Paul is willing to be "like" the Jews in order to win them (1 Cor 9:20). And indeed we find many Jews who are curious, their hearts being pricked by the Holy Spirit. So, it would seem that the Church is to treat Jews as though they are "low hanging fruit," until open hostility is met. If so, it should be obvious that Jews resist the Gospel just like the unbelieving nations. 3. How does the coordinating conjunction "and" in 16a connect back to the previous verses? Coordinating most likely, stating two purposes of the abolishing of the law. 4. What do the "covenants of promise" refer to specifically? Probably the whole panoply of blessings; the land, the properity, the offspring. Certainly in Ephesians the thought of the New Covenant is present. The land is there. And so too is eternal life. 5. What is the connection between the propositions in vs 12? Being without Christ seems to be the heading that all the other curses fall under. Without Christ, there is no hope for the Gentiles. Without Christ, there is no access to the covenants of promise. Without Christ, Gentiles are totally alienated from the citizenship of God's people. Without Christ, we're without God. The trick is seeing how the participle in 12d relates. It's not grammatically parallel with anything else here, although the passive participle for "alienated" is similar. Is it best to take these things as a series? Certainly all these things mean there's no hope, but can we cut it the other way? I don't think so. Having no hope is the inference of all these things, it would seem. The way I come to this conclusion is simple: all those things lead to having no hope, but having no hope does not lead to those things. Or, to say it differently, those things fall under the heading of "no hope," whereas none of the other things are over "no
