Paul’s Use of Scripture in Romans, Part 3

Paul’s Use of Scripture in Romans, Part 3

Here is Part 3 of my series with Mike Heiser at The Naked Bible Podcast.

Episode Description:

In the preceding episodes, we’ve seen how Paul reconfigures Old Testament faith, faithfulness, and Torah keeping in light of the work of Jesus and his own encounter with the risen Christ. In this episode we look at how Paul recontextualized Israel’s election in light of Christ as the risen messiah. Specifically, we’ll look at Paul’s use of Hosea in Romans 9, and how Paul sees Hosea’s words describing God’s election of Israel as including Gentiles, thus reconfiguring the concept of election.
