Jared Smith's Studies In Romans

Study 6: Secret Rebellion (2:17-3:8)

This study examines Paul’s challenge to the Jewish people as a nation, as they then existed when his letter to church at Rome was written. He charges them with hypocrisy and ignorance. Hypocrisy, because they were law breakers though they sat in judgment of the Gentiles; Ignorance, because they were law perverters, substituting God’s masterplan for the ages with that of their own. An application is drawn from this teaching in the modern context of denominationalism.
