Questions in this Episode

1. I have a question about Romans 11. In whom are what are the gentiles and Israel grafted into? And what is the nature of this engrafting since it seems Paul says that parts of Israel have been broken off and he warns the gentiles that they can be broken off? And lastly, what is the significance of this for the Christians life?

2. I've been taught my whole life that after the cross and resurrection, unbelievers are sitting in a prison with an open door and all they have to do is just walk out. This sounds a lot like universalism but am assured by those teaching it that is not because those that do not walk out are choosing to stay. Can you explain this idea?

3. What does it mean to “watch and pray” in the book of Matthew?

4. In Romans 9, Paul says he wished he could be accursed for the sake of his Jewish brothers. Is he saying this because he wants us to have a love for the Jewish people?

5. Why are there so many references about Jesus’ blood in our redemption, and not just that we are saved by Jesus himself?

6. What makes for a Godly Marriage?
