For there is no difference between Jew and Gentile1--the same Lord is Lord of all2 and richly blesses all who call on him,
for, "Everyone who calls on the name of the Lord 3 will be saved."a414
How, then, can they call on the one they have not believed in? And how can they believe in the one of whom they have not heard? And how can they hear without someone preaching to them?
And how can they preach unless they are sent? As it is written, "How beautiful are the feet of those who bring good news!"b516
But not all the Israelites accepted the good news.6 For Isaiah says, "Lord, who has believed our message?"c717
Consequently, faith comes from hearing the message,8 and the message is heard through the word of Christ.9
