Similarity between Romans 9 and Ephesians 1

A friend is preaching on Romans 9 this Sunday and made the comment how it was messing with his head… so I went and read Romans 9 this morning and noticed the similarities between

Romans 9:1-5 and Ephesians 1:3-12
Romans 9:6-18 and Ephesians 1:13- 23

It should not be surprising that Paul has similar patterns of thought within his letters.

Through reading Romans 9:1-5 we get a clearer understanding of what I have argued here from Ephesians is Paul’s understanding and meaning of “predestined” and “election.”
