3 s. hrs. Romans is the key to the whole Bible. Bible 208 is an expository and theological study of Paul’s epistle focusing on its answer to the question “What is the Gospel?” The student will gain a knowledge of the progress of Paul’s thought and encounter many of the great doctrines of the faith. Some attention will be paid to responding to modern criticism of Romans and developing sound hermeneutical techniques that can be applied to all of Scripture. Special emphasis will be made concerning the connection between good theology and right behavior, both personally and in our relationships. The student should come away from the course seeing Romans as vital to developing a sound Christian world view.
