Romans 2:17-29
"The Object of One's Confidence"
Here Paul continues his argument for the universal problem of sin, specifically how it is also a problem for Jews and not only Gentiles.  In these verses he tackles two objections that he knows his Jewish listeners will raise — their possession of the Law and their being marked with the sign of the covenant — circumcision.  Paul demonstrates once more that it is obedience that matters — and on those grounds, all of humanity stands in trouble.  It is this reality, however, that makes the gospel truly remarkable and glorious news for all who believe!
