Romans chapter 11 is probably one of the most misunderstood, misinterpreted chapters in the Bible. Verse 25 is going to be the linchpin verse that this lesson will be about. Romans 11:25, “For I would not, brethren, that ye should be ignorant of this mystery, lest ye should be wise in your own conceits; that blindness in part is happened to Israel, until the fulness of the Gentiles be come in.” There’s a mystery here, and we’re going to try to uncover it. The word ‘gentiles’ is very interesting. It comes from the Greek word ethnos which is where we get the word ‘ethnic’ as in ‘ethnic group’.
