Romans: Faith in the God Who Rescues
— NEWT 0622 (3)
As he prepared for his last, fateful journey to Jerusalem, Paul sent the Roman churches a summary and defense of his controversial preaching. More than any other New Testament document, it is this letter to the Romans that has gone on to shape the thought of key leaders such as Augustine, Luther, Calvin, and Barth. Traces the argument of Paul's letter, setting it in the context of his mission and the realities of the Roman church. Along the way, we will explore the radical theological and ethical vision Paul developed, and we will examine some of the very different ways in which Paul's readers have understood that vision. Prerequisite: BIBL 501. Recommended: NEWT 522.
