PWD Lesson 05 Roman 1:16-17 Part 3

Synopsis

Mark continued with the series, Passages Worth the Dig, Part 3 with a further study into Romans 1:16-17. Paul writes he is not “ashamed” of the Gospel. The translation of the Greek word for “ashamed” shows us Paul did not "experience a sense of loss of status” because of his belief in the Gospel. He preached Jesus died for our sins. Mark refers to other New Testament passages that point to Jesus crucified, which is contrary to Gentile Greek and Roman gods who believed a god who died for their sins was folly. Our God is just, fair, and righteous. The believer is not guilty because Jesus paid the debt in full. Mark also reviews and expands on Pauls’ use of righteousness and concludes the lesson by reciting the words to the hymn: Beneath the Cross of Jesus
