Description

This course is Part Three of a three-part course covering the whole of Paul and His Letter to the Romans. This course, Romans: Part Three, is designed to take around ten weeks to complete and stands firmly on the platform Paul has made in Romans 1-8 and connects the ides of the mercies of God discussed in chapters 9-11.
Discover why the section of this Epistle in Romans 12-16 is every bit as vital as what has gone before. You will appreciate how this resounding conclusion is not merely an ethical application with rules for how to behave. Rather, what God has done in the Gospel is to construct a new community.
In this section you will explore questions such as:
•What does it mean to live as the faithful people of God who are ‘doing and being’ the Gospel in the world?
•In what ways is the Christian more than getting your life in order? How can ‘a living sacrifice’ be an appeal to give your whole self to God in worship?
•Is Paul saying to just do what the government tells you to do in Romans 13?
•How can we live in light of the fact that in Jesus, God’s new world has broken in to the present age?
•Why are both unity and holiness vital for the church today?
•What is going on in the list of greetings in the final chapter?
The textbook is Prof. Wright’s commentary on Romans in the Paul for Everyone series published by John Knox Press in the U.S. and SPCK in the UK.    
The structure of the course includes:   
•   Lectures by Prof. Wright   
•   Quizzes to assess comprehension   
•   Student discussions    
•   Interaction with Prof. David Seemuth, your co-instructor for the course   
•   Textbook readings   
•   Interaction with the biblical text itself   
If you are interested in a deeper knowledge of a new kind of thinking that leads to unity, holiness, and living worship of the Creator God, then this course is for you. We invite you to enroll!
