    It is very simple, Jesus called the Jews stiffed necked they were disobedient from day one. Paul is trying his best to teach them the real truth so they won't be lost again. The word of God said, God winked at ignorance. In our world today the same thing thing is happening, the world said show me then I will believe. God said believe and I will show you things you have never seen.
