STUDIES IN THE BOOK OF ROMANS COURSE SYLLABUS

A chapter-by-chapter analysis of Paulís argument in the book of Romans with special emphasis on Paulís view of humanity, salvation, Christ, and the Holy Spirit

Trinity College of Biblical Studies-Free Online Bible College

COURSE DESCRIPTION

The Apostle Paulís letter to the church at Rome is one of the most important books in the Bible. It has captured the imagination of Christian and non-Christian thinkers throughout history. The powerful concepts contained within it propel Romans forwards as classical literature ahead of its time in many official areas of theological, psychological, social, ethical, and of course, ecclesiastical reflection. This greatest of Paulís epistles could very likely be viewed as the most polished and clearest expression of who God is and what He has done for us through Jesus Christ. This course will focus on the text of Romans with a view toward providing an in-depth understanding of its primary themes.
