We practice every day what we believe; everything else is religious talk. ~Source unknown

Here Paul is arguing in the closest and the most difficult way. It will make it easier to understand if we remember that he is carrying on an argument with an imaginary objector. William Barclay

3. a. “Do the Jews have an advantage over the other nations?” Romans 3:1 Voice

At the time Jesus came on the scene, the Jews expected God to send another king like David who would deliver them from the oppressive Roman government and make them a powerful, wealthy, and sovereign nation once again.

Whatever God has promised gets stamped with the Yes of Jesus. 2 Corinthians 1:20a MSG

I have eternal life with God which began the moment I heard Jesus knocking, opened the door and said, “come in”.

Jesus said, “I am standing at the door and knocking. If any of you hear My voice and open the door, then I will come in to visit with you and to share a meal at your table, and you will be with Me.” Revelation 3:20 Voice

Spiritual armor (Ephesians 6:1-18) so that no instrument of war which is formed against you will be of any use; and every tongue which says evil against you will be judged false. This is the heritage of the servants of the Lord, and their righteousness comes from me, says the Lord. Isaiah 54:17

The promised Holy Spirit helps me, teaches and reminds me, and gives me peace. John 14:26

Whatever God has promised gets stamped with the Yes of Jesus. 2 Corinthians 1:20a MSG

b. The Jews have been entrusted with the very words of God. Romans 3:2 NIV

“To the Jews were entrusted the oracles of God.” Romans 3:2 (Oracles probably refers to the ten commandments.)

The Jews knew their history with God, especially how he miraculously delivered them from Pharoah and brought them into the land He promised where they lived in “beautiful and spacious cities you didn’t build.  You’ll have houses filled with good things waiting for you—cisterns to hold water already dug out of the rock for you, and vineyards and olive orchards that you didn’t plant. You’ll have all you want to eat and more.” Deuteronomy 6:10-11 Voice

God’s Word contained the covenant God made with their ancestors which contained promises of health, prosperity, and favor.

In God’s Word, I learn about who God is and who I am.

All Scripture is breathed out by God and profitable for teaching, for reproof, for correction, and for training in righteousness, that the man of God may be complete, equipped for every good work.

I also learn about God’s—

  • Faithfulness
  • Promises
  • Power
  • Love
  • Mercy

4. God spoke to and through the Jewish people. Romans 3:2

Genesis 12:1-7; Deuteronomy 30:15-20; Jeremiah 31:35-37

“God retained His holiness even when His people were unholy. It was the Jews, not God, who suffered from not believing God’s Word.” Andrew Wommack’s Living Commentary.

5. It was against You, only You, that I sinned,

for I have done what You say is wrong, right before Your eyes. Psalm 51:4 Voice

Because

God speaks the truth, and cannot lie. God cannot change; his word, like himself, is immutable. We are to believe God’s truth if nobody else believes it. The general consensus of opinion is nothing to a Christian. He believes God’s word, and he thinks more of that than of the universal opinion of men. Spurgeon

Psalm 51:1-6; James 1:13-14
