Exploring The Bible

22. New Testament

Romans - A.D. 56

 

G'day and welcome to our series, "Exploring the Bible" This is also the title of our latest book available on Amazon by clicking here or visiting PulpTheology.com

Key Verses:

  • Romans 1:16-17 / Romans 3:23

 

Paul’s letter to the Romans explains what God has done, presenting God's plan of salvation, which is in Jesus Christ, and the effect this has upon all mankind. This gospel plan sees God's righteousness extended to all of mankind based on Jesus Christ’ work on the cross. It is received by faith in Him, rather than the good works of man. It investigates ideas such as guilt, faith, assurance, security and sanctification.

Paul is very concerned that there should not be any conflict between Jewish Christians and Gentile Christians in Rome. So he explains very carefully how it is that everyone, although basically a sinner, can be accepted by God. That acceptance, called righteousness, can only be gained by belief in and commitment to Jesus and his atoning death on the Cross. He then explains how this leads to the gift of the Spirit and the ability to live a life worthy of a follower of the Lord.

Exploring The Bible

21. New Testament

1 Corinthians - A.D. 55

 

G'day and welcome to our series, "Exploring the Bible" This is also the title of our latest book available on Amazon by clicking here or visiting PulpTheology.com

Key Verses:

  • 1 Corinthians 1:30
  • 1 Corinthians 10:12-13

 

The established church in Corinth had been taught by Paul, but had not learned its lessons very well! Paul had a vested interest in them because of this. Members of the church were living sinful lives and this was expressed in many forms.

Paul wrote to correct them. In doing so, he shows great love and a truly pastoral heart. On his way through his argument to them Paul expounds great themes such as love and the resurrection.

Exploring The Bible

20. New Testament

2 Corinthians - AD 55-56

 

G'day and welcome to our series, "Exploring the Bible" This is also the title of our latest book available on Amazon by clicking here or visiting PulpTheology.com

Key Verses:

  • 2 Corinthians 4:5-6 / 2 Corinthians 5:17

 

The church in Corinth had not taken well to the direction Paul has given it in previous letters. Second Corinthians deals with the alienation between Paul and the Corinthians, its effect upon both parties and Paul’s hope for reconciliation.

Paul presents his authority, message, suffering, disappointments, responsibilities, blessings, and hope. He weaves the threads of the letter together so that the Corinthians are encouraged to grow in Christ.

Exploring The Bible

19. New Testament

Galatians - A.D. 49-50

 

G'day and welcome to our series, "Exploring the Bible" This is also the title of our latest book available on Amazon by clicking here or visiting PulpTheology.com

Key Verses:

  • Galatians 2:20 / Galatians 5:25

 

Paul is furious at the way Peter has allowed a division to appear amongst the Christians in Galatia. Is salvation purely a grace gift, as Paul taught, or does it partly depend on belonging to the correct people group, the Jews? Galatians centres on the conflict between those two teachings.

Paul emphasises that the Christian must have faith in Jesus’ work on the cross as the only means of salvation, rather than thinking he must also be a slave to the Jewish Law. He defends the gospel of grace, explains it and then applies it to the Christian walk by saying it is the believer’s responsibility to serve others.

Exploring The Bible

18. New Testament

Ephesus-A.D. 60-62

 

G'day and welcome to our series, "Exploring the Bible" This is also the title of our latest book available on Amazon by clicking here or visiting PulpTheology.com

Key Verses:

  • Ephesians 2:8-9 / Ephesians 4:1-3

 

What we call Ephesians is not so much a letter as a short thesis, on the subject about being a Christian. We happen to have the copy that went to Ephesus. Paul discusses the life of Christians, comparing it with how they were before they came to faith when they were separated from God.

He speaks of their new position in Christ now that they believe, and how it occurred. He talks about themes such as adoption, redemption, inheritance and citizenship. He then moves to the Christian, being equipped for service, to live a righteous life and the engagement in spiritual warfare.
