2. What does it mean to be “called” in this context? We often speak of being called to a particular ministry or place in life, but what is “called” referring to here? Do you see any parallels with Isaiah 51:2?

3. What is the “gospel”? See Gal 2:15-16. Compare Isa 52:7; 1 Cor 15:1-8; and Rom 1:1-6.
