The former class of passages relate to the first advent, and are fulfilled; the latter to the second advent, and are unfulfilled. for a light of the Gentiles The prophets connect the Gentiles with Christ in a threefold way" (1) as the Light He brings salvation to the Gentiles Luke 2:32; Acts 13:47,48 (2) as the "Root of Jesse" He is to reign over the Gentiles in His kingdom. Isaiah 11:10; Romans 15:12. He saves the Gentiles, which is the distinctive feature of this present age. ; Romans 11:17-24; Ephesians 2:11,12 He reigns over the Gentiles in the kingdom-age, to follow this. See "Kingdom (O.T.)," ; Genesis 1:26-28; Zechariah 12:8. (3) Believing Gentiles in the present age, together with believing Jews, constitute "the church which is His body."

This appeal of the prophet to the fulfilment of his former predictions strongly confirms the unity of the book.
