Watch this overview video and then read chapter 11.
v17 - Paul uses the analogy of olive trees. We have wild olive trees all over the valley… they grow like weeds. In a sense, we as gentiles have been cut away from the weeds and grafted into the cultivated tree - into God’s people. Note here that there is only one tree - God only has one people… Israel and the church are synonymous.
v33 - After all of these difficult chapters, Paul ends this section with one of the most beautiful doxologies in scripture. Read it through a couple of times, especially as the mysteries we’ve read about the last couple of days are fresh in your mind.
