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
