BB Members: What does the Olive Tree in Roman 11 represent? 1. The invisible church 2. The visible church 3. The local church 4. The nation of Israel 5. Remnant Israel 6. Other This is not a survey but a spur to debate. I believe it represents the visible church under the Old Covenant and the New Covenant, and the braking off of the natural branches represents the braking off of unbelieving Jews in the transition from the old administration to the new administration. What say you? I might not get back to this till tomorrow night to join any debate that may arise out of this, but please do procede without me. Thanks.
