Brothers and sisters, my heart's desire and prayer to God on behalf of the Jewish people is that they would be saved.
I can assure you that they are deeply devoted to God, but they are misguided.
They don't understand [how to receive] God's approval. So they try to set up their own way to get it, and they have not accepted God's way for receiving his approval.
Christ is the fulfillment of Moses' Teachings so that everyone who has faith may receive God's approval.
Moses writes about receiving God's approval by following his laws. He says, "The person who obeys laws will live because of the laws he obeys."
However, Scripture says about God's approval which is based on faith, "Don't ask yourself who will go up to heaven," (that is, to bring Christ down).
"Don't ask who will go down into the depths," (that is, to bring Christ back from the dead).
However, what else does it say? "This message is near you. It's in your mouth and in your heart." This is the message of faith that we spread.
If you declare that Jesus is Lord, and believe that God brought him back to life, you will be saved.
By believing you receive God's approval, and by declaring your faith you are saved.
Scripture says, "Whoever believes in him will not be ashamed."
