THE EPISTLE OF PAUL THE APOSTLE TO THE ROMANS
GRAFTING OLIVE TREE
GRAFTING OLIVE TREE STUDY ON
GRAFTING OLIVE TREE MEANING WITH
GRAFTING OLIVE TREE MESSAGE
Happy to have you
back again to share more Daily Bread. In the last chapter of Paulís letter,
he was expressing his hope for the people of Israel to see the light of
Jesus. He explained how they were very passionate for God, but that those
who fail to recognize Jesus as the Son of God, would lose the promise.
There are many
religions that teach that Jesus is not the Son of God, that donít believe in
the Holy Trinity, or that say that Jesus was just a prophet, yet they claim
they believe in God. Friends, Jesus is part of God, so if you donít believe
in Jesus, youíre denying part of God. How do you think your Father feels
about that? Add to that, the part about how He sent Jesus to suffer so that
we could be forgiven for our sins and live forever with Him for the simple
price of having Faith in Him, and that should make it easy to understand how
denying Jesus would be a righteous reason for God to deny anyone who didnít
believe in His precious Son.
This is a rather
lengthy chapter, so Iíll try and make it as clear as possible within the
text itself, and not so much adlibbing so that you can complete it in a
reasonable amount of time. Now letís continue with what Paul was saying.
I ask you then, Has God cast away His people (Israelites)?
For I also am an Israelite, of the seed of Abraham, of the
tribe of Benjamin.
God has not cast away His people which He knew before.
Donít you know what Elijah said in the scripture?
How he makes intercession to God against Israel saying,
1 Kings 19:10
And he said, I
have been very jealous for the LORD God of
hosts: for the children of Israel have forsaken
thy covenant, thrown down thine altars, and
slain thy prophets with the sword; and I, even I
only, am left; and they seek my life, to take it
But what was Godís answer to him?
1 Kings 19:18
Yet I have left
me seven thousand in Israel, all the knees which
have not bowed unto Baal, and every mouth which
hath not kissed him.
Even now there is a remnant (small amount remaining)*
according to the election of Grace (who God has chosen).
And if by
Grace, then is it no
longer of works, otherwise Grace is no longer Grace.
But if it be of works, then it is no longer Grace,
otherwise work is no longer work.
*Remember we talked about this earlier in Paulís letter, that God didnít
leave Israel such a countless amount of people, because of what might
happen? We used the Tower of Babel as an example. So, you just found out
now, that the remnant was once as little as seven thousand people.
GRAFTING OLIVE TREE LESSON WITH GRAFTING OLIVE TREE EXPLANATION
So, what does that mean?
Israel hasnít obtained the kingdom of God, which it
but Godís chosen (seven thousand) had obtained it, and the
rest were blinded.
(Just as it is written, God has given them the spirit of
eyes that they should not see,
and ears that they should not hear) until this day.
For the LORD hath poured out upon you the spirit
of deep sleep, and hath closed your eyes: the
prophets and your rulers, the seers hath he
And David said:
table become a snare before them: and that which
should have been for their welfare, let it
become a trap. Let their eyes be darkened, that
they see not; and make their loins continually
I ask then, Is salvation hopeless for them because of
But rather because of their fall,
salvation is available to the Gentiles,
in order to provoke them to jealousy.
Now if the fall of them be the riches of the world,
and the failure of them the riches of the Gentiles;
how much more their fullness?
What does this mean? Well, if the Jewish people see that the Gentiles are
inheriting what was once promised to them, it will make them jealous, and
hopefully cause them to accept Jesus as their Savior in order to regain the
I am the Apostle of the Gentiles,
For I speak to you Gentiles, since
if by any means I may provoke to jealousy them which are
and might save some of them, I am a credit to my ministry.
For if the rejection of them, causes the reconciling of
what shall the acceptance of them be, but life for the
Letís take a
little intermission from Paulís letter for a moment, to have a little Daily
Bread Crumb. Do you know what grafting is? To graft is to connect something
that wasnít originally connected. Letís talk about a tree for example,
because Paul is going to be using a tree in his analogy in a moment, of how
the Gentiles have become connected to the Lord. If a branch is broken from a
tree, you can make a clean cut at the break, then another branch can be cut
off a different tree, at the same angle, and fitted onto the broken spot,
then attached together. Sap will then flow through to the new branch, and it
will become part of the tree. In Paulís example, the Gentiles are wild olive
trees, and the Israelites are good olive trees.
Blindness (hardness, stubbornness) in part has happened to
For if the first fruits are holy,
(Godís first fruits are the Israelites, or the olive
the entire tree is also holy:
and if the root be holy,
so are the branches.
And if some of the branches are broken off,
and you, being a wild olive tree,
be grafted in among them,
and with them partake of the root and strength of the
donít boast (brag) against the branches.
Because if you boast, remember, you donít sustain the
but the root sustains you.
You will say then,
The branches were cut off (rejected),
that I might be grafted (fitted) in.
Well, because of unbelief they were broken off,
and you stand by Faith.
Donít be proud, but be humble.
Because if God didnít spare the natural branches
(the Jewish people),
be careful, He may also not spare you.
Notice the goodness and the severity of God:
on those who fell, severity,
but toward you, goodness,
if you continue in His goodness,
otherwise you also shall be cut off.
And if they donít remain unbelieving,
they shall be grafted in, because God is able to graft
them in again.
For if you were cut out of an olive tree which is wild by
and were grafted contrary to nature into a good olive
how much more easily shall these, which are the natural
be grafted into their own olive tree?
I want you to understand this mystery,
so you wonít be wise in your own proud ideas.
until the fullness of the Gentiles be come in
(until the time of the Gentiles is completed).
THE TIME OF THE GENTILES BEGAN AT
THE TIME OF JESUS
AND WILL CONTINUE UNTIL HIS RETURN.
In this way, all Israel shall be saved: as it is written,
There shall come out of Zion the Deliverer,
and shall turn away ungodliness from Jacob:
Oh that the
salvation of Israel were come out of Zion! when
the LORD bringeth back the captivity of his
people, Jacob shall rejoice, and Israel shall be
And the Redeemer shall come to Zion, and unto
them that turn from transgression in Jacob,
saith the LORD. As for me, this is my covenant
with them, saith the LORD; My spirit that is
upon thee, and my words which I have put in thy
mouth, shall not depart out of thy mouth, nor
out of the mouth of thy seed, nor out of the
mouth of thy seed's seed, saith the LORD, from
henceforth and for ever.
therefore shall the iniquity of Jacob be purged;
and this is all the fruit to take away his sin;
when he maketh all the stones of the altar as
chalkstones that are beaten in sunder, the
groves and images shall not stand up.
As concerning the Gospel, they are enemies for your sakes:
but concerning the election (the chosen people of God),
they are beloved for the father's sakes.
the LORD loved you, and because he would keep
the oath which he had sworn unto your fathers,
hath the LORD brought you out with a mighty
hand, and redeemed you out of the house of
bondmen, from the hand of Pharaoh king of Egypt.

For the gifts and calling of God are without repentance.
For as you in times past have not believed God,
(during the Time of the Jewish people)
yet have now obtained mercy through their unbelief (in
In the same way, have these also now not believed,
that through the mercy shown to you,
they also may obtain mercy.
For God has concluded (confined) them all in unbelief,
that He might have mercy upon all.
O the depth of the riches both of the wisdom and knowledge
How unsearchable are His judgments, and His ways past
For who has known the mind of the Lord?
Or who has been His counselor?
(Who has given Him advice?)
Or who has first given something to Him, that it shall be
repaid to him again?
prevented me, that I should repay him?
whatsoever is under the whole heaven is mine.
For of Him, and through Him, and to Him,
are all things:
to whom be glory for ever.
Unsearchable is a
perfect word that Paul used to describe Godís judgments. Heís fair and just,
to everyone. Even though He says, I choose who I want, and I donít choose
who I donít want, youíll always find that Heís righteous and true. How many
times has He been gracious to you? Be sure and thank Him.
You know, a lot of
times there are scripture passages given that verify whatís being discussed
in Daily Bread. It might be a great idea, if you only have a certain amount
of time each day to devote to Daily Bread, you could keep some sticky notes
by your computer and jot down the scripture passages, then later on, look
them up. Itís a good refresher for what you read earlier in the day and it
will enhance your understanding too. These studies are so helpful and
enriching and the more you learn, the more interesting the Bible becomes.
When we come back,
weíll have more of Paulís letter to the Romans, so hurry back, and weíll
share more Daily Bread.
