VIII. MAIN BODY:

Romans 10:2 (King James Version)

For I bear them record that they have a zeal of God, but not according to knowledge.

Romans 10:2 (Amplified Bible)

I bear them witness that they have a [certain] zeal and enthusiasm for God, but it is not enlightened and according to [correct and vital] knowledge.

A. Jews have zeal and enthusiasm for GOD

"I bear them witness that they have a [certain] zeal and enthusiasm for God,"

Galatians 4:17-18 (Amplified Bible)

These men [the Judaizing teachers] are zealously trying to dazzle you [paying court to you, making much of you], but their purpose is not honorable or worthy or for any good. What they want to do is to isolate you [from us who oppose them], so that they may win you over to their side and get you to court their favor.

It is always a fine thing [of course] to be zealously sought after [as you are, provided that it is] for a good purpose and done by reason of purity of heart and life, and not just when I am present with you!

Philippians 3:6 (Amplified Bible)

As to my zeal, I was a persecutor of the church, and by the Law’s standard of righteousness (supposed justice, uprightness, and right standing with God) I was proven to be blameless and no fault was found with me.

John 16:2 (Amplified Bible)

They will put you out of (expel you from) the synagogues; but an hour is coming when whoever kills you will think and claim that he has offered service to God.

2 Kings 10:16 (Amplified Bible)

And he said, Come with me and see my zeal for the Lord. So they made [the Rechabite] ride in Jehu’s chariot.

EXAMPLES OF PEOPLE IN THE BIBLE WITH KNOWLEDGE BUT NO ZEAL:

1. JEPHTHAH - whose name means "he will open" forgot that the LORD JESUS opened a way for him to defeat his enemies, but never checked or learned by knowledge who is the one that opens first his door to meet him and he sacrificed his daughter because of zeal without knowledge.

Judges 11:30-31 (Amplified Bible)
