Abide in Truth is a ministry of Calvary Chapel Emmett and listeners can tune in every weekday at 10:30 am and again at 5:45 pm. Mike Hughes is the teaching pastor at CC Emmett and each week he looks to go through God’s Word, book by book and chapter by chapter.
In our text today, as Paul is talking about the church and its attitudes, he is talking about its attitudes towards Judaism and Jewish people. In fact, a lot of the people who were Christians in that day were from Judaism. And then there were other people who were not Jews who got saved, and they have their own opinions of Judaism. So what Paul is doing, is he is helping us to understand what a healthy attitude toward the Jewish people and the Jewish nation is, and just dealing with the problem of antisemitism of that time, which was very prevalent.
