Scripture




Philippians 3:4-6King James Version

4 Though I might also have confidence in the flesh. If any other man thinketh that he hath whereof he might trust in the flesh, I more:

5 Circumcised the eighth day, of the stock of Israel, of the tribe of Benjamin, an Hebrew of the Hebrews; as touching the law, a Pharisee;

6 Concerning zeal, persecuting the church; touching the righteousness which is in the law, blameless.

The Book of Romans

This book may be the greatest theological book in the entire Bible. Paul ties in the Old Testament and Old Covenant into the New Covenant. I can’t say the New Testament because it was not yet completed. Paul likely wrote Romans while residing at Corinth sometime between A.D. 55 and A.D. 57. I believe that Romans is Paul’s greatest presentation of the gospel among all of his writings. The Reformers leaned heavily upon Romans as the key to understanding all Scripture and reveals the assurance of faith in Christ (8), the daily struggle with sin (6, 7), the vital signs of all Christian believers being love for one another (12) and obedience to human authority (13). If anyone is seeking biblical understanding about justification by faith, the law, judgment, sin, human depravity, the destiny of believers and unbelievers, grace, works, election, sanctification, and the plan of salvation, this book covers it.
