Israel's Rejection Of The Message

14 How, then, shall men call upon one in whom they have not believed? And how shall they believe in one of whom they have not heard? And how shall they hear, without one to proclaim? 15 And how shall they proclaim, except they be sent? Even as it is written - How beautiful the feet of them that bring glad tidings of good things! 16 But, not all, have become obedient unto the glad tidings; - for, Isaiah, saith - Lord! who believed what we have heard?
