The State of the Elect vs. Physical Israel: God is Vindicated (Romans 9:1-29)

God has always said by what standard the called will be elected. Much how a boss puts out a want ad to hire someone, the standard is set out. In this way, the elected are predestined. The individual is not predestined per se, rather the ones who will come up to the standard that was predestined.
