Romans 11: What Did Paul Mean When He Said, “All Israel Will be Saved”?

    Great message Joel. I have a question for you from Romans 11.

    In Isaiah 59:20 “and a Redeemer will come TO Zion” and when Paul quotes it “The Deliverer will come FROM Zion”
    See where before the crucifixion it was TO Zion… and after the crucifixion it says FROM Zion. I think this means that Jesus is sitting on His throne AS KING now… as the kingdom is being ushered in without visible signs….as in Luke 17:20. Key word “ushered” in

    I am wondering about your thoughts on this shift in language from the old to the new. testament.

    Hi Troy,

    Paul is simply quoting from the Septuagint.

    So for clarity. You are saying that the words are not to be different. They should both read To Zion? I read this originally when reading a book on Progressive Dispensationalism by Craig A. Blaising, Darrell L. Bock. That is why I ask.

    It not an either/or, but a both/and. At least that is my understanding.

    Joel…will all OT jews be risen to enter the
    millenium along with the Trib. Jews and be saved. This passage is confusing. BECAUSE Ezekiel 36.12 talks abt bringing them fr their graves. ..etc. for God’s Spirit to be . Poured out on them.
    thank u.

    Old Testament saints will be resurrected along with present day Christians / Messianic Jews. Those who were unfaithful will not be resurrected until the resurrection of the unrighteous unto judgment

    I found you because you said in a message that the YouTube channel is not you. So here I am. A number of years ago I was given understanding about the salvation of all of Israel. I also find it interesting that in 2 Peter 3:16 Peter seems to recognize that the letters of Paul are scripture by implication when he says they twist Pauls words just as they do the rest of Scriptures.

    Great message. When you read Deuteronomy 30-32, and Isaiah 59-60 in their context, it’s pretty hard to justify replacement theology from Romans 9-11. Not to mention that Paul also likely had Ezekial 36-38 in mind when he said ‘what would their inclusion mean except life from the dead.’

    Joel , I realize this is a subject that can’t be thoroughly covered in the comment section. However I’m thankful that you have no problem teaching from the Old Testament and you haven’t removed The Law. Jesus did not remove The Law , He paid the penalty for The Law. The Law was created to expose our sin.
    It was the blood sacrifices that was removed, Remember when Jesus cleanses the temple? He turned over the tables of the money changers, drove out all the cattle, sheep, doves and any merchandise used for the blood sacrifices. Mark 11:16 says Jesus would not allow anyone to carry merchandise through the temple courts. The teachers of the law asked Him by what authority are you doing these things? The reason Jesus was disrupting their sacrifical system was because He was about to become our atoning sacrifice. Thanks for all you do Joel,
