The abyss (Rom 10:7)

“‘Who will descend

Into the abyss?’

That is

To bring Christ up

From the dead.”

ἤ Τίς καταβήσεται εἰς τὴν ἄβυσσον; τοῦτ’ ἔστιν Χριστὸν ἐκ νεκρῶν ἀναγαγεῖν.

Paul continued with the citation from Moses from Deuteronomy, chapter 30:11-14 that said ‘Who will descend into the abyss (ἤ Τίς καταβήσεται εἰς τὴν ἄβυσσον)?’  That is to bring Christ up from the dead (τοῦτ’ ἔστιν Χριστὸν ἐκ νεκρῶν ἀναγαγεῖν).  Yahweh continued to tell Moses that they did not have to go down into the sea. “who will cross to the other side of the sea for us, and get it for us, so that we may hear it and observe it?”  No, the word was very near to them.  It is in their mouth and in heart for them to observe.  Then once again, Paul added that Jesus Christ had been raised up from the dead.  Paul continued to use the Hebrew Bible in a Greek translation, the Septuagint, to show how Jesus was a continuation of the Jewish law and life.  Do you accept the Jewishness of Jesus?
