Jesus Saenz has a new post up regarding reading election in Romans 9 from a national or individual perspective. As one who was taught to read Paul from a corporate church perspective, it’s always challenging to look at the individual, but Jesus has put together a cogent argument for his position:

God made a promise to Abram that he would give to Abram a male heir and from this male heir he would have offspring that could not be counted! And this is the saving faith of Abraham, that he would be given a son of promise by whom his offspring would be many nations. The fulfillment of this is the grafting in of the Gentiles into the tree of Israel, but the Gentiles are not grafted in as nations but as individuals. There are no elect nations outside of Israel and the true Israel is made up of both Jew and Gentile.
