Salvation is of the Jews
Posted: 7 January 2011 in John, Mark, Romans

Ye worship ye know not what: we know what we worship: for salvation is of the Jews. (John 4.22)

And if some of the branches be broken off, and thou, being a wild olive tree, wert grafted in….. Boast not against the branches. But if thou boast, thou bearest not the root, but the root thee. (Romans 11.17-18)

But Jesus said unto her, Let the children first be filled: for it is not meet to take the children’s bread, and to cast it unto the dogs. (Mark 7.27)

All of these passages seem to be saying more or less the same thing. Salvation first of all comes to the Jews, and only afterwards does anybody else get a look in. To us Gentiles that might seem a bit naff – why should we be second in the queue? But, as always, we are being reminded that God’s ways are not our ways.
