Good News for All:
In this concise study of Paul’s letter to the church in Rome, we will learn step by step that the gospel is “the power of God to salvation for everyone who believes.” Paul proclaims God’s plan to provide deliverance for sinful man from the penalty, power, and of sin through Christ’s sacrificial death. We learn how to respond to God’s grace and mercy in our daily lives, and we gain insights into God’s future plan for His earthly people, Israel.
Luther described Romans as “The Purest Gospel.” This course serves as an excellent introduction to it.
The perspective taken in this study course on the Letter of James is “Faith on Trial.” Within its five short chapters, James seems to be putting our faith to the test. Is my faith genuine, or is it a cheap imitation?
D. A. Hayes comments: “The letter speaks to us where we are in a language we can understand. Its short sentences go like shots straight to the mark. We feel the impact and the impression of them. There is an energy behind them and a reality in them that makes them live in our thoughts.”
The purpose of the letter is not to teach doctrine so much as to help us apply the doctrine to our lives. In terms of Christ’s resurrection, for instance, it shows us how we should display the life of the risen Christ to those about us.
This study will challenge you to review your life and assess the degree to which you are living out your faith in Christ.
