The Advantage of the Jew
One of the fascinating things about the Bible is the place of the Jews within it. In both the Old Testament and the New Testament, they are the people of privilege. Yet in Romans two, Paul told us that they have fallen under the judgments of God because they have preferred religion to their own Messiah Jesus. Yet they still have had advantages.
Then what advantage has the Jew? Or what is the benefit of circumcision?
2 Great in every respect. First of all, that they were entrusted with the oracles of God.
3 What then? If some did not believe, their unbelief will not nullify the faithfulness of God, will it? (Rom 3:1-3)
The great advantage of the Jew is that they have the Word of God. They are the only nation on the face of the earth to receive the Old Testament and the revelation of Christ in the New Testament. They have experienced the ways of God in the Old Testament and the person of Christ in the New. Even with those privileges, some have not believed. Their unbelief does not nullify the faithfulness of God to his own promises. If the Jewish nation does not keep faith, that does not mean that God won’t! God is faithful.
