(1 Cor. 1535 88 to 44.J The reader can never read this and not see tbat there is a vast difference in the resnrect ion ef the dead. For Paul says all flesh are not the same flesh And then says there is a glory o! the sun a glory of the moon and a glory of the stars and so is the resurrection of the dead. After Paul explains the diffe rence there is in two characters the Jew and Gentile from a bodi ly stand point: by the sun and moon be then speaks of the mingled people as stars, Then, tbat there might not be any misunderstanding, from a sph-i tnal stand point he explains the the spiritual difference between thtfininthe 46 v. Then to keep as from a misunderstanding of the 46 he comflrms all; in the 47-48 verses) , Hence, , , pod says through Moses to the complete man: (the Jews,) I will move them to jealo usy with those which are not a people: I will provoke them to anger with a foolish nation Dent, 32 21. Id this ve have the two char acters the ews who are a com plete people, the Gentiles who are a people that are not a people As we have said be for, Panl comfirmed this in this language But I say. Did not Israel know? First Moses saitb I will provoke you to jealousy by them that are no people, and by foolish nation I will anger you Rom. 10 10 Provoke you is one, and a peo pie who is not a people is the other one, And this Paul again so plain ly designates in the follow! scriptures. I say then hath God cast away his people (the Jews) God forbid, For I am an Israelite of the seed of Abraham of the tribe of Benjamine. God hath not cast away bis people (the Jew which he fore knew. Wot ye not what the scriptures saitb of Elias? How be maketh intercession to God against Israel (the Jews saying Lord tbey have killed thy prophets and digged down thine alters: and I am left alone and they seek my life But what the answer of God unto him I have reserved unto my self seven thousand men who have not bowed the knee to the image of Baal. Even so then at this present time a! so there is reminent ac cording the election of grace.

And if some of the branches (of the Jews) be broken off and thou (the Gentiles) being a wild olive tree wert grafted inamoung them, (the Jews) and with then partake of the root (Christ) and fatness of the olive tree, the Jews Boast not aganist the branches the Twelve Tribes of Israel. But If thou the Gentiles boast thou bearest not the root Christ but the root (Christ) thee Thou the Gentiles will say Tne branches ibe Jews were brok en off that I (the Gentiles might be graded in. Well because of unbelief they (the Jews) were broken off and thou (the Gentiles) standest by faitb, Be not bighminded but According a. it is written ood '"1-D"u U"V, .. t-.i .kJnatural branches (the Jews) take heed lest he also spare net tbee (the Gentiles. For if thou you bath given them the Jews the spirit of slumber eyes tbat they should not see. and ears that tbey should not hear unto this day.
