The Proclamation of Praise

INVESTIGATE

V.11 ** As Paul now continues his masterful presentation of the gospel, from where does he draw support for the idea of putting your faith in Jesus Christ?

From "the Scripture" Paul brings the evidence that "whoever believes in Him will not be disappointed".

** What is so significant about Paul referring to Scripture?

It is the only source of truth that we have and it is completely sufficient for all of our spiritual need, man's opinion is of no value! cf. 2Peter 1:20-21, 2Timothy 3:16-17

** To what Scripture does Paul refer?

Isaiah 28:16 tell us of a "costly cornerstone" that God was going to lay in Zion for the foundation and he who believes in Him will not be disappointed.

By comparison, in Acts 4:12, the apostle Peter proclaimed "...and there is salvation in no one else; for there is no other name under heaven that has been given among men, by which we must be saved."

V.12 ** Before we move into verse 12 of Romans, chapter 10, let's review where the heart of the apostle Paul is coming from. What two groups has he been comparing in this letter and how were their methods of "salvation" different?

Jews (Nationally speaking) - Salvation by works. cf. Romans 9:32

Gentiles - Who said that salvation came by grace through faith. cf. Romans 9:30, Ephesians 2:8-9

** Now, here in verse 12, with so many differences culturally and religiously between those to groups, how is it that God perceives them?

"..there is no distinction between Jew and Greek.."
