    Romans Ep. 4: Chapters 4-8

    Romans Ep. 4: Chapters 4-8

    In these chapters, St. Paul continues to build his argument about God’s faithfulness, using the stories of Abraham and the Exodus. He presents Abraham as a shared father in faith— to both Jewish Christians and the Gentiles. St. Paul also writes that Jesus Christ restores our proper relationship with God, ourselves, our neighbor and creation.
    JD wrestles with Romans 5:20, and St. Paul’s reflection on the relationship between law and sin.

    Romans Ep. 3: Chapters 1-3

    Scott talks with JD and Kate about the first chapters of St. Paul’s letter to the Romans, in which Paul writes about the universality of sin and the wrath of God.

    The Apostle Paul, c. 1657 Rembrandt

    Righteousness of God = God’s faithfulness to his covenant promises— not only to Abraham, Moses and Israel, but to the whole of creation
    Works of the Law (Works) = All the markers that, under the Mosaic covenant, designated membership in God’s covenant family (e.g, circumcision, kosher/dietary laws, Old Testament feasts, Sabbath observances) In short, the book of Deuteronomy. 
    Faith = baptism
    Salvation = being a part of the covenant family

Romans Sunday School

Excellent content. Even though the content was clear I will be listening at least once more (and probably more often) to absorb the many great points. Thanks!

Helpful and insightful

This is a solid podcast (I’ve listened to the season on Mark twice as well) and I find Dr Powell’s insights to be enlightening. The only improvement I would suggest is to remove the level of banter and interruptions. At the beginning is one thing, but there are several times when Scott is making his point but has his thoughts interrupted by jokes or unnecessary comments.
