What does Jesus the Judge want when this happens without exception, to Jews and Greeks before his judgment seat? And what was Paul leading up to, when in the first part of this Epistle he reminded them of that judgment? We shall now learn that, especially in this message, the issue is not the rejection of men, but their salvation, their welfare and beatitude.

20 – dishonor among the Gentiles. 21–22 is to be taken literally it should not be regarded as a portrayal of particular atrocities or bad habits for which Paul wants to blame contemporary Jewry. The Jews are thieves, adulterers, and desecrators by what they did to Jesus Christ on the day of Golgotha and which, in spite of his resurrection they continue to do by declining to accept the glad message of the grace which has appeared in him, and by persecuting the Church which praises that grace. Who delivered his Messiah to the Gentiles and with him his God?

He takes it seriously that Jesus Christ is over him and the rest of the Church, and that he, Paul himself is not over and above the Church but lives in the Church, receiving as well as giving. Therefore, when he prays for the church in Rome and pleads that he may be allowed to see her, he is praying for himself as well. 13). 10 Paul is convinced that, if it could not be carried out so far, it was evidently not the will of God – this is in keeping with his usual interpretation of such situations.
