Thesis:   The Word of The God has not failed because the condition of the Israelites in the first century is not an accurate picture of the condition of "Israel" in the first century.

Introduction:   In the paragraph before us, we are facing Paul's "biblical hermeneutic" as he continues to defend the Gospel as it affects the massive shift in "message focus" and "audience". The Jews had accused him of preaching a "theology of hate" as he dismantled the legal theology of the Jews and proclaimed his message to the nations. They also accused him of preaching an inherently contradictory theology wherein he admitted that "Israelites" were significantly attached to God's promise of adoption, but then accused them of significant apostasy in their rejection of Jesus of Nazareth as God's Christ. How can the Israelites be in such a state if God had promised them "the adoption"?
