Romans 1:16; Romans 11:11; Romans 13:11
For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ: for it is the power of God unto salvation to every one that believeth ; to the Jew first, and also to the Greek.
I say then , Have they stumbled that they should fall ? God forbid : but rather through their fall salvation is come unto the Gentiles, for to provoke them to jealousy .
And that, knowing the time, that now it is high time to awake out of sleep: for now is our salvation nearer than when we believed .
