"In Romans 11, Paul (a Jewish Pharisee who went on to write at least a third of the New Testament) warns particularly about two major pitfalls in Gentile approaches toward Jews who do not embrace Jesus as Messiah"

  • arrogance (Romans 11:17-18)

If some of the branches have been broken off, and you, though a wild olive shoot, have been grafted in among the others and now share in the nourishing sap from the olive root, do not consider yourself to be superior to those other branches. If you do, consider this: You do not support the root, but the root supports you.

  • and ignorance (Romans 11:25).

I do not want you to be ignorant of this mystery, brothers and sisters, so that you may not be conceited: Israel has experienced a hardening in part until the full number of the Gentiles has come in.
