How do you explain the Olive Tree (Romans 11:16-24)?

On 13, Feb 2015 | In | By admin

Romans 11:16-24 describes a one-time event in redemptive history. Abraham is the root and Israel (not “the visible church”) is the tree. At the coming of Christ, the nation of Israel (typical) was cut off for violating the Old Covenant. The branches that remained were the remnant, the true Israel of God/the Church (anti-typical), to which Gentiles were added through faith alone. Abraham had two seeds: carnal and spiritual. They are both represented as Israel, the Olive Tree.
