“Without a doubt, Paul’s prayer for Israel was that what had been taken away from them—spiritual discernment and knowledge (see Isa. 6:9–10)—would be restored to them. He knew they were not carefully rejecting the claims of Christ, as if they knew something that he did not. They were stumbling over Christ because of spiritual blindness. It was as if they were walking down a path on a moonless night and stepped on the tail of the Lion of Judah who was lying in their way. They never even knew what hit them. Thus is the nature of spiritual blindness.” – Kenneth Boa and William Kruidenier
