Paul continues to make extensive use of Scriptural quotations, with six citations of the Old Testament in these eight verses. The powerful imagery of these passages serves to reinforce his teaching as he continues to explain the significance of the large scale rejection of the gospel by the Jews. This also gives occasion for thinking about God's way of communicating the good news, not only to Jews, but to all peoples.
