|Who Is Jesus? Jesus Christ, A Stone Of Stumbling And A Rock Of Offense by Primate7: 11:27pm On Nov 27, 2019|
WHO IS JESUS?
JESUS CHRIST, A STONE OF STUMBLING AND A ROCK OF OFFENSE
THE LETTER OF PAUL TO THE ROMANS CHAPTER 9 VERSE 32 AND 33 SAY THAT:
32And why not? Because it was not by faith [that they pursued it], but as though it were by works [relying on the merit of their works instead of their faith]. They stumbled over the stumbling Stone [Jesus Christ] [Is 8;14; 28;16]
33 As it is written and forever remains written, "BEHOLD I AM LAYING IN ZION A STONE OF STUMBLING AND A ROCK OF OFFENSE; AND HE WHO BELIEVES IN HIM [whoever adheres to, trusts in, and relies on Him] WILL NOT BE DISAPPOINTED [in his expectations]." [Is 28:16]
