Paul’s Condemnation of the Jew (whom he loved)
Paul is condemning them because of their perversion of the law! They were more in love with the tradition of the elders that they were with God.
You see the the law is perfect. The law is wonderful! The law in its infancy, in the face of Abraham had great glory! But as time goes on, as the face of Abraham faded so did the glory of the law. By the time we get to these Jews that are living in Pauls days these are so full of pride. Sadducees and Pharisees full of pride. Full of themselves. They are in love with the letter of the law, but no the spirit.
Read Romans 2:17-24
