Nehemiah Part 38. A Tour of the Walls of Jerusalem Part 11, plus a summary of the gates in Nehemiah.
Sunday, March 11, 2012
We have been noting the first group of the vessels of mercy, the Jews led by Nehemiah and his desire for Jewish restoration.
We will also note the second group of the vessels of mercy who are called from among the Gentiles and led by their apostle, the apostle Paul.
ROM 11:13 But I am speaking to you who are Gentiles. Inasmuch then as I am an apostle of Gentiles, I magnify my ministry,
1TI 2:7 And for this I was appointed a preacher and an apostle (I am telling the truth, I am not lying) as a teacher [not of the Jews] Gentiles in faith and truth.
(1) Sheep Gate – the gate through which the sheep were brought into the city to be used at the altar. We enter the Sheep Gate when we believe in Christ. The Sheep or the Lamb as the sacrifice goes all the way back to Abel’s offering in GEN 4:4; where the Lord had respect for Abel’s offering but not for Cain’s.
