Romans 3:21-31

Romans 3:1-20 were boring and I skimmed over them. It was just going on about circumcision and Jewishness, which I'm not interested in.

So I'm only doing verses 21-31 from Romans chapter 3.

Here, Paul says that both Jew and Gentile fall short of God's standards, through sin. Yet both Jew and Gentile may be saved by Jesus Christ. 

He then says that the whole point of Christ being put to death was to give people a way out of sinfulness. And that both Gentiles and Jews may be saved by Christ's sacrifice.

He then says that God does not favour either Gentiles or Jews.

What I don't understand about this is that this is supposed to be a letter to the church in Rome, yet he is clearly addressing Jews.

I don't get it.

If you have any idea please leave it in the comments section!
