All those philosophies, all those gospels, if they can rightly be called so, that make man’s salvation depend on his own effort, can fall down. Salvation by works does not work.
This survey examines the key themes in Paul’s great treatise on the Gospel he was commissioned to preach. It highlights the great truth that salvation is by faith, not human effort, and that we need to be saved not only from the wrath of God but from the wreckage caused by Adam’s sin. It deals with the vexed question of Israel’s rejection of the Messiah and sees Paul’s confidence that God’s sovereign purposes will be fulfilled in a coming day when all Israel will be saved. A final section considers the background to the term ‘propitiation’ and the importance of grasping its true meaning. Throughout the study we are invited to join with Paul in his praise and thanksgiving for such a great salvation.
Recorded at Panton Hall, Cambridge,
