Context Readings

Jews Still Have An Advantage

2 The privilege is great from every point of view. First of all, because the Jews were entrusted with God's truth. 3 For what if some Jews have proved unfaithful? Shall their faithlessness render God's faithfulness worthless? 4 No, indeed; let us hold God to be true, though every man should prove to be false. As it stands written, "That Thou mayest be shown to be just in the sentence Thou pronouncest, and gain Thy cause when Thou contendest."
