Context Readings

Israel's Rejection Of The Message

16 But not everyone [of the Israelites] obeyed [that] good news. For Isaiah said [Isa. 53:1], "Lord, who has believed our message?" 17 So, faith results from [people] hearing, and [their] hearing results from [the preaching of] the message about Christ. 18 But I ask, "Did not they [i.e., the Jews] hear [the message]?" Certainly they did! [Psa. 19:4 says], "The sound [of their preaching] went out into all the world, and their message reached to the ends of the earth."
