The Epistle To The Romans Chapter 10 (15 of 25)
Salvation is in Christ Jesus Our Lord - Romans 10:1-11
In the 9th chapter or this book, we saw Paul's heart
towards the lost condition of his own people, the
Jews. He described his heart condition as: great
grief, unceasing sorrow, and mental and physical

church leaders risk their lives to proclaim the
salvation message if the Jews did not need to be saved
or if they were already saved? Jews are going to be
punished with the SAME everlasting fire along with the
