Re: On the Greek Word Houtós In Romans 11: 26
« on: February 14, 2020, 11:21:24 am »
But even without the word houtós at the start of Romans 11: 26 common logic would require that what Paul says in Romans 11 before Romans 11: 26 has to be used in interpreting the meaning of Romans 11: 26. Paul also makes statements in Romans 9 and 10 which are relevant to the meaning of Romans 11: 26, especially verses 6-8 of Romans 9, and verse 12 in Romans 10.

Also, Paul uses the metaphor of the olive tree in Romans 11, and writes about  the good olive tree in Romans 11: 24.  He does not say in an explicit way in Romans 11: 15-24 that all who are in the Good Olive Tree - Elect Jews and Believing Gentiles grafted in -  can be considered as Israel of the New Covenant.  But the unity between believing Jews and believing Gentiles which Paul affirms in Ephesians 2: 12-22, in Galatians 3: 26-29, and Romans 10: 12 would support such a doctrine.  There is a disagreement between dispensationalists and followers of Reformation Theology, including Calvinists, on whether Paul in Galatians  15-16 is teaching that the "new creature" there is in effect elect Jews and elect Gentiles joined together in what he calls the "Israel of God."

Dispensationalism starts from the peculiar postulate that "Israel is an eternal nation, heir to an eternal land, with an eternal kingdom, on which David rules from an eternal throne so that in eternity, '...never the twain, Israel and church, shall meet." Lewis S. Chafer

The two peoples, two programs postulate of dispensationalism is not in New Testament scripture.

John Calvin says of Romans 11: 26 that "Paul intended here to set forth the completion of the kingdom of Christ, which is by no means to be confined to the Jews, but is to include the whole world. The same manner of speaking we find in Galatians 6:16. The Israel of God is what he calls the Church, gathered alike from Jews and Gentiles; and he sets the people, thus collected from their dispersion, in opposition to the carnal children of Abraham, who had departed from his faith.
