New Defender's Study Bible Notes

11:2 foreknew. God’s “foreknowledge,” as is evident from His calling of Israel long before Israel was a nation, involves not just pre-knowledge but pre-planning.

11:2 Wot. An archaic word meaning “know.”

11:2 scripture saith. Romans 11:2-4 give Paul’s application of Elijah’s experience (I Kings 19:8-18) to the doctrine of Israel’s remnant of believers during the age of the church. They constitute the true Israel, even while Jewish and Gentile Christians serve together in the church.
