How can people tell the Good News if no one sends them? As Scripture says, "How beautiful are the feet of the messengers who announce the Good News."
16But not everyone has believed the Good News. Isaiah asks, "Lord, who has believed our message?" 17So faith comes from hearing the message, and the message that is heard is what Christ spoke.
18But I ask, "Didn't they hear that message?" Certainly they did! "The voice of the messengers has gone out into the whole world and their words to the ends of the earth."
19Again I ask, "Didn't Israel understand [that message]?" Moses was the first to say, "I will make you jealous of people who are not a nation. I will make you angry about a nation that doesn't understand."
20Isaiah said very boldly, "I was found by those who weren't looking for me. I was revealed to those who weren't asking for me."
21Then Isaiah said about Israel, "All day long I have stretched out my hands to disobedient and rebellious people."
