About the Book

Paul’s foundational letter to the Romans is placed within the commonly accepted scripture structure as the initial letter from one of the apostles to the churches in the first century, BC. Paul, formerly known as Saul of Tarsus, was by his own account one of the most prominent Jewish scholars, thoroughly versed in the history of his nation, as well as the particulars of the Law of Moses. In the early days of church history, immediately following the crucifixion and ascension of Jesus Christ, Saul of Tarsus was one of the fiercest opponents of the sect known as Christians, initially known by that name in the ancient city of Antioch. The Lord dramatically saved Saul as he approached Damascus in Syria with orders from the Jewish Sanhedrin to capture and return Christians for trial in Jerusalem. Knocked to the ground, and blinded, Jesus instructed him to continue on to Damascus to be prayed for by a Christian, Ananias, at which time he would recover his sight, receive his new name, and begin his new career as the apostle to the nations. Paul was perfectly suited to fulfill his new role. His letter to the Romans laid out the basic doctrines of faith for all believers. In Chapters 9-11, of which this manuscript describes, Paul provides a detailed status report on Israel, including their temporary fall from grace, followed by the wondrous time when they will return to God when All Israel Shall be Saved.

About the Author

Joel Zao is the pen name of Joel Butler, who resides in Destin, Florida with his wife of 52 years, Bette Butler. The couple met in college in Tallahassee, Florida, became engaged and married before graduation. Bette was born in Birmingham, Alabama, Joel in San Bernardino, California, but they both claim Florida as their home as they have lived there together since their college days. They have two grown children, and three grandchildren. Upon graduation during the Vietnam era, Joel entered the Air Force as a pilot. After five years of service, Joel separated from the Air Force to enter the business world in Ft. Walton Beach, Florida. With a degree in business management, Joel eventually opened his own business, along with Bette as his business partner, to serve the real estate profession as a title insurance agent. It was during the career as a Florida title insurance agent that Joel applied his business training to learn the specialty aspects of real estate ownership. In so far as the ownership of real property is based upon the accurate legality of the documents created to pass title in an insurable manner, Joel focused on the various estates of ownership, and how those estates related to each other. This unique knowledge supplied Joel with insights to scriptural truths that are reflected through the mirror of God’s revelation Christ Jesus, the heir of all things.
