Faithful versus unfaithful Jews (Rom 3:3)

“What if some were unfaithful?

Will their faithlessness


The faithfulness of God?”

τί γάρ; εἰ ἠπίστησάν τινες, μὴ ἡ ἀπιστία αὐτῶν τὴν πίστιν τοῦ Θεοῦ καταργήσει;

Paul said that what if some were unfaithful (τί γάρ; εἰ ἠπίστησάν τινες)? Will their faithlessness (μὴ ἡ ἀπιστία αὐτῶν) nullify (καταργήσει) the faithfulness or trust of God (τὴν πίστιν τοῦ Θεοῦ)?  Paul responded that the faithlessness of a few Jews will not nullify the trust of God.  Humans who are unfaithful and untrustworthy do not take away the faithfulness and trust of God.  A few unbelieving people will not change God’s faith in the Jews.  Do a few people indicate that the whole group is unfaithful?
