Tonight I begin posting the last part of Martin Luther’s introduction to the Letter of Paul the Apostle to the believers in Rome. As many people know, Martin Luther belonged to a group of theologians who believed that God had abandoned Israel after they killed Jesus. As fantastic a teacher and theologian as Martin Luther was, this is simply untrue. God’s promises to the people of Israel are intact with one addition, that they accept Jesus as their promised Messiah and turn the lordship of their lives over to Him. In these passages I’ll post tonight and tomorrow, there are some bits of text about the Israelites that are unsavory and, in my opinions, totally wrong. I will continue to post the entire introduction as a statement to God’s astounding grace and as part of my commitment to present the whole work without edits or changes of any kind.
