    The Just shall live by faith

    Romans 1:16, “16For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ,[a] for it is the power of God to salvation for everyone who believes, for the Jew first and also for the Greek.” Among most Paul’s well known phrases and most often used quotes is the above verse. Paul had been imprisoned more

    Unrighteous Gentiles

    1:18-30 opens up a new section in Romans. After introducing the righteousness which comes from God (1:17), a theme he develops at length (3:21-5:21), Paul presents the overwhelming evidence of man’s sinfulness, underscoring how desperately he needs this righteousness that only God can provide. He more

    Knowledge, Truth and Guilt

    Having demonstrated the sinfulness of the immoral pagan (1:18-32), Paul presents his case against the religious moralist-Jew or Gentile- by cataloging 6 principles that govern God’s judgment: 1) knowledge (v.1); 2) truth (vv.2,3); 3) guilt (vv.4,5); 4) deeds (vv.6-10); 5 more

    Deeds and impartiality

    Deeds and Impartiality Romans 2:6-10: Scripture everywhere teaches that salvation is not on the basis of works (4:1-4; Eph 2:8-9), it consistently teaches that God’s judgment is always on the basis of man’s deeds (Is. 3:10-11; Jer 17:10; John 5:28-29; 1 Cor 3:8; 2 Cor 5:!0; Gal 6:7-9; Romans more

    Jews are just as guilty as Gentiles

    Romans 2:17-29, having shown that outwardly moral people, Jew and Gentile alike-will stand condemned by God’s judgment, Paul turns his argument exclusively to the Jews, God’s covenant people. Neither their heritage (vs.17a), their knowledge (vv.17b-24), nor their ceremonies, specifically more

    Circumcision of no avail

    Romans 2:25, “ 25For circumcision is indeed profitable if you keep the law; but if you are a breaker of the law, your circumcision has become uncircumcision.” This goes back to Genesis 17:11, “And you shall be circumcised in the flesh of your foreskins, and it shall be a sign of the covenant more

    God’s judgment defended

    God’s judgment defended Romans 3:1-2, “1 What advantage then has the Jew, or what is the profit of circumcision? 2Much in every way! Chiefly because to them were committed the oracles of God.” The Jews are condemned along with the heathen, what advantage is there in more

    All have sinned

    Its common for people today to excuse their faults with the attitude, “He nobody’s perfect!” True enough. People can only be expected to be human which means fallible. Unfortunately, though, few people take that reality seriously enough. Indeed when it comes to their standing before more

    Boasting excluded

    Having provedn conclusively that universal sinfulness of man and his need for righteousness in 1:18-3:20, Paul develops the theme he introduced in 1:17; God has graciously provided a righteousness that comes from Him on the basis of faith alone (3:21-5:21). After all this bad news about our more

    Abraham and David justified by faith

    This chapter is pivotal in establishing that justification is by God’s grace through faith alone. Verses 1-8 demonstrate that justification is a gift and cannot be earned by works. Verses 9-12 argue that since Abraham was justified before he went circumcised, circumcision is not a basis of more

    Abraham justified before circumcision

    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Romans 4: 9Does this blessedness then come upon the circumcised only, or upon the uncircumcised also? For we say that faith was accounted to Abraham for righteousness. 10How then was it accounted? While he was more

    The promise granted through faith

    In Galatians Paul argues hat Christ is the seed of Abraham, and so the blessing comes to the Gentiles as well as the Jews through Christ. The promise in Romans, this promise is not based on Abraham’s works or merits as in Galatians. Paul is following his argument chronologically by applying his more

    Faith Triumphs in Trouble

    Romans 5:1, “ 1 Therefore, having been justified by faith, we have[a] peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ,” Therefore is a transition word Paul uses to move from one argument to another. He will use the word again in v.12 to point out that this is another argument. This more

    The Two Kingdoms

    Romans 5: 12Therefore, just as through one man sin entered the world, and death through sin, and thus death spread to all men, because all sinned—“ This section from 5:12-21 is one of the most enigmatic passages in the entire book, for Paul sets out to show how one’ man’s death can more

    Upside down spiritiuality

    From 6:1 to 8:39 the Apostle Paul moves from demonstrating the doctrine of justification which is  God’s declaring the believing sinners righteous (3:20-5:21), to demonstrating the practical ramifications of salvation on those who have been justified. He specifically discusses the doctrine of more

    From slaves of sin to slaves of God

    This section continues Paul’s discussion of sanctification by reminding his readers of their past slavery to sin and their new slavery to righteousness.

    Freed from the Law

    Knowing that his readers-especially Jewish ones-would have many questions about how the law relates to their faith in Christ, Paul sets out to explain that relationship (he refers to the law 27 times in this passage in Romans 7). In a detailed explanation of what it means not to be under law, but more
