f. Christ, Received or Rejected
16 But not all have 1aobeyed the gospel, for Isaiah says, b"Lord, who has believed what he has heard from us?''
17 So faith comes out of ahearing, and hearing through the bword of Christ.
18 But I say, Have they not heard? Yes surely: a"Their voice has gone out into all the earth and their words to the ends of the inhabited earth.''
19 But I say, Did Israel not know this? First, Moses says, a"I will bprovoke you to jealousy by them who are not a nation; by a nation without understanding I will anger you.''
20 And Isaiah is very bold and says, a"I was found by those who did not seek Me; I became manifest to those who did not ask for Me.''
21 But with regard to Israel he says, a"All the day long I have stretched out My hands to a people who disobey and contradict.''
