The correct handling of the Scriptures (2 Timothy 2:15) that in the interpretation of Scripture it is important to take account not only of what is written but of whom, to whom, with what words, at what time, to what intent, with what circumstances, and considering what goes before and what comes after.

Colossians 2:8-10 -"Beware lest any man spoil you through philosophy and vain deceit, after the tradition of men, after the rudiments of the world, and not after Christ. For In him dwelleth all the fulness of the Godhead bodily. And ye are complete in him, which is the head of all principality and power:"

THE GREATEST DISCOVERY that any human being can make is the discovery of the ALL-SUFFICIENCY OF CHRIST, and the utter worthlessness of man without Him. Christ is all, and in Him we have all. Without Him we are nothing, absolutely nothing. It makes no difference how many times we multiply ciphers: they will be devoid of all magnitude or quality until we place some digit before them But once a digit is placed before them, they take on meaning, value, significance.

We are told in Gal. 3 that at that time the covenant God made with Abraham back in Gen. 12 was in no way affected or annulled by the law which came 430 years after at Sinai. The epistle to the Romans has much to say about Abraham and the covenant and the law.

The completed canon of scripture prior to the destruction of Jerusalem - 69-70 A.D. - assures us that the traditional claims, "dating the writings of the Apostle John between 85-100 A.D," are false. (See "The Mystery" - God's Sacred Secret to Complete the Word of God.){C}

In the prophecies of Hosea and others, there is a hint of the present age, a two days in the which Israel will be out of God’s plan and purpose. But these prophecies do not tell of Israel being blest in these days. The salvation of God has been sent to the Gentiles, no longer of the Jews.

Companion Bible - Appendix 193 - "MYSTERY" (from Appendix 193 of The Companion Bible compiled by E. W. Bullinger)

The English word "mystery" is a transliteration of the Greek word, musterion, (it is from mueo - to initiate or admit to secrets; and mustes was used of the person so initiated), which means sacred secret. It occurs in the Septuagint Version (280 B.C.) nine times as the equivalent for the Chaldee, raz in the Chaldee portion of "Daniel," which means to conceal ; hence something concealed that can be revealed, viz, in Daniel 2:18, 19, 27, 28, 29, 30, 47 and 4:9.

Our main ground for this series is the epistle of Paul to the Romans. It has to do with the dispensation of promise. So it naturally would have to do with the covenant, the old one, and also the new one which was made with the house of Israel and the house of Judah (Jer 31:31). No covenant was ever made with Gentiles.

The 11th chapter of Romans deserves a lot more space than we can give it here. But in the hope readers will carry on the study, we give a bare outline and leave it with you.

At the time of the writing of Romans, God had not cast away His People, Israel. The reason, a remnant believed. This is likened to the 7,000 men who had not bowed the knee to Baal in the time of Elijah.
