Romans: God’s Word for You
Mondays, March 12 & 19, April 16-May 7
The book of Romans has been influential in changing the lives of many people. Martin Luther had been taught that in order to be saved he needed to live a righteous life. As a result he hated God, and it was not until he grasped the meaning of Romans 1:17 (“The righteous will live by faith”) that he was able to state that he felt himself reborn. John Calvin spoke of Romans as the hidden treasure of Scripture where he learned that our righteousness is only through the mercy of God in Christ. Augustine sought truth anywhere but in Scripture until he read Romans 13:13-14: “Not in riots or drunken parties…not in strife and rivalry, but put on the Lord Jesus Christ… .”
This course is designed by Dr. Tim Keller of Redeemer Presbyterian Church in New York City, who has been praised as a current day thinker on the order of C.S. Lewis. It will cover Romans 1-7 in 12, one-hour sessions.
Greg Erdmann will facilitate discussions that examine key points in the text. No textbook or homework is assigned, but please bring Bibles. The course will focus on:
- Observation questions (What does it say?)
- Interpretation questions (What does it mean?)
- Application questions (What does it mean to us?)
The goal of the course will be to study Romans so that, like Luther, students will break through in their understanding of the gospel message and their experience of the gospel life.
Pastor’s Bible Study
Thursdays, April 5 – May 3
Christ’s resurrection is one of the unique marks of Christianity. The promise that we too will be raised from the dead will be the focus of this time together as Pastor Lloyd Wallace guides us through passages in both the Old and New Testaments.
