Theology Paul transitions from writing about the remnant to focusing on unbelieving Israel. He starts by showing the irony of the situation: the Gentiles did not pursue righteousness but attained it, while Israel did pursue righteousness but did not attain it. How did that happen? The Gentiles attained righteousness by faith. Except for a few exceptions in the OT, the Gentiles were not seeking after YHWH. Many nations had never even heard of YHWH. But after Christ came, God “granted repentance that leads to life” (Acts 11:18) to the Gentiles, fulfilling OT promises about them that they never even knew were theirs. It was in that sense that the Gentiles did not pursue righteousness. Israel, on the other hand, pursued righteousness by works of the law. Dr. Jason Meyer argues that Israel was to pursue the law by faith in Christ. However, by not believing in Christ they stumbled over him, not the law, and were put to shame. Application God has shown us Gentiles so much grace! While we were yet sinners Christ died for us. Why did God choose to include the Gentiles in his promises to Abraham and Israel? God has completely initiated His relationship with the Gentiles from all over the earth. Still today Gentiles are hearing about YHWH for the first time and believing in Christ. There is no shame for those who believe in Christ. Questions What is “it” in v. 32? Righteousness? A law that would lead to righteousness?
