NT671 The Book of Romans: The Theology of the Apostle Paul (2 credits)
May 21-25, 2018; 8:00am to 12:00pm
Instructor: Mr. Gino Garcia
This course will walk through the theology of the Apostle Paul as espoused in the book of Romans. The theme of the book centers on the gospel. Paul is deeply concerned that his readers understand how a sinner may be received as righteous by a righteous God; and how a justified sinner should live daily to the glory of God.
In this module, the participant will learn that the book of Romans employs a basic theological pattern of atonement by God, peace with God, and dedication to God, as it weaves a theological argument from the beginning of God’s work until the end. The rest of the book lays out the application of our new covenant relationship through Christ towards the practice of the law of love.
