<476> Thesis: Zeal needs a legitimate objective. Introduction: As we began our studies in Romans 10 last week, we focused our attention upon Paul's return to his "attitude" toward his kinsmen according to the flesh. Anyone who really did have a willingness to be the sacrifice required for the justification of another would be able to say what Paul did in 10:1. The major significance of this return to by Paul to the attitude of his heart is to set the tone for the other things he had to say. This evening we are going to begin to look into those "other things". The first of them is Paul's reference to the Jews' ignorant zeal "of God" as the rationale for Paul's attitude toward them.
