Reclaiming the Faith

Revealing what the earliest Christians believed about the core issues facing us today.

Jacob, Esau & Election

March 1st, 2021

In Episode 97, I dig into the book of Romans to explore what Paul meant in Romans 9:13, “Jacob I have loved, Esau I have hated.” Was Paul teaching us the doctrine of Unconditional Election, or did he have something completely different in mind?
