Acts 26:6; Romans 4:13; Romans 15:8; Galatians 3:16; Romans 9:4

And now I stand here on trial because of my hope in vthe promise made by God to our fathers,


The Promise Realized Through Faith

13 For ethe promise to Abraham and his offspring fthat he would be heir of the world did not come through the law but through the righteousness of faith.


Christ the Hope of Jews and Gentiles

For I tell you that Christ cbecame a servant to the circumcised to show God's truthfulness, in order dto confirm the promises given to the patriarchs,


16 Now athe promises were made bto Abraham and to his offspring. It does not say, And to offsprings, referring to many, but referring to one, cAnd to your offspring, who is Christ.


They are eIsraelites, and to them belong fthe adoption, gthe glory, hthe covenants, ithe giving of the law, jthe worship, and kthe promises.
