Romans 11:16-24 ~ The Metaphor of the Olive Tree ~ Pastor Bill Slabaugh
In using the analogy of the olive tree in Romans 11:11-15, the apostle Paul shows us that in the Christian church, there is no place whatsoever for anti-Semitism or looking down upon the Jews. We are blessed as Gentile believers in Christ only because we are blessed by being connected to an Abrahamic root. We are blessed by becoming people of an Abrahamic covenant through spiritual heritage. We are blessed because we have been grafted into the stock of Semitic blessing. We are blessed because we are grafted into the covenant of salvation that God made with Abraham.
