Theological Development of Main Theme (18) The Universal Guilt in Disobedience (1:183:20) The Universal Grace in Jesus Christ (3:218:39) Slide 6 Rom 5:111 List of blessings results of justification: Peace (v. 1) Grace (v. 2) Glory (v. 2) Hope (45) Love (v. 5) Reconciliation (v. 11) Slide 7 Therefore, having been justified by faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ Rom 5:1 ~Alv' Slide 8 through whom also we have access by faith into this grace in which we stand Rom 5:2 Slide 9 and rejoice in hope of the glory of God Rom 5:2 Slide 10 and not only that, but we also glory in tribulations, knowing that tribulation produces perseverance Rom 5:3 Slide 11 and perseverance, character; and character, hope Rom 5:4 Slide 12 and hope does not disappoint us, because God's love has been poured into our hearts through the Holy Spirit which has been given to us Rom 5:5 Rom 5:1221 FROM ADAM . . . TO CHRIST Slide 14 PAUL SHIFTS HIS SIGHT FROM BELIEVERS AS A GROUP TO HUMANITY AS A WHOLE Slide 15 Rom 5:1221 appears to be a concluding section to the introductory part of Romans Humanity had exchanged its destiny and now was faced with two options (Achtemaier): Belong to the humanity whose destination is determined by Adam Belong to the humanity whose destination is determined by Christ Slide 16 sin indeed was in the world before the law was given, but sin is not counted where there is no law Rom 5:13 What sort of sin was it if it did not originate as contradiction of the Law? Slide 17 TWO IMPORTANT DISTINCTIONS: Sin as a power in the human experience from which no one can escape Sin as something for which the individual can be charged Slide 18 Rom 5:19 For just as by the one man's disobedience the many were made sinners, so by the one man's obedience the many will be made righteous. Slide 19 GRACE IN LIGHT OF HONOR IN ROMANS Slide 20 A SOCIOANTHROPOLOGICAL APPROACH MONARCHY THEN AND NOW Slide 21 ca,rij Slide 22 8 7 6 5 4 3 2 1 0 Rom Rom Rom Rom Rom Rom Rom Rom 1 3 5 7 9 11 13 15 Slide 23 Honor-Shame Grace MONARCHIAL IMAGERY . . . through whom we have obtained access to this grace in which we stand; and we boast in our hope of sharing the glory of God (Rom 5:2) Slide 24 A focus on: "Grace as divine legitimation, particular grace mediated through rituals that give legitimacy to honor in terms of precedence and status." Halvor Moxnes Slide 25 HONOR Honor can be ascribed by God, a king, a president--in sum, by persons who can claim honor for others and can force acknowledgement of that honor because they have the power to do so. Slide 26 PATRONCLIENT SYSTEM Emperor was perceived both as a paternal protector and a benefactor Emperors of Rome had adopted a patronage system as a mode of political administration Slide 27 MEDIATOR Patrons often functioned as mediators between a benefactor (like the emperor) and a client. Slide 28 Some observations: The imagery was familiar to the Roman Christians Jesus functions like a mediator between God and people hence placing faith in Him (Rom 5:9) The Roman rulers thought of Rome as the glory of imperial expansion (Rom 5:2b) Concepts of reign and rule objects reigned and ruled over were death (Rom 5:14, 17, 21), sin (Rom 5:21), righteousness (Rom 5:17), and grace (Rom 5:21) Slide 29 Slide 30 Paul contrasted oppressive reign (of the emperor), as expressed in the dominion by death and sin, with freeing reign (of God), as expressed in the dominion by righteousness and grace. The power of God leads unto salvation (Rom 1:1617). The power of the emperor could not accomplish what the power of God, as put forth in Christ, could. In fact, the emperor had to answer to God, the sovereign ruler over all the universe. Slide 31 From the very beginning of the letter, starting with Rom 1:34, Paul had set out to prove that Christ was the real king. Jesus Christ was the true Son of God in power (Rom 1:3), not the emperor. God was the selfgiving benefactor who allowed His subjects to respond freely and by their own choice to His favors. In fact, by accepting God's freely given grace, an additional favor was received: eternal life (Rom 6:2223). Slide Due to the three exchanges of GLORY humanity (Rom 1) all of humanity was in a position of utter shame-- fallen short of the glory (honor) of God (Rom 3:23). Yet now humanity could enter into God's presence because of grace (Rom 5:2) only God had the honor necessary to bestow such grace. Slide 33 Slide 34 Since grace cannot be bestowed without honor, grace as divine favor is directly dependent upon honor. Only God had the honor status enabling Him to extent the grace needed to restore humanity. Slide 35 Slide 36 ROMANS CHAPTER 6 Slide 37 Introduction (1:17) A.

Theological Development of Main Theme (18) The Universal Guilt in Disobedience (1:183:20) The Universal Grace in Jesus Christ (3:218:39) Slide 40 We know that our old self was crucified with him so that the sinful body might be destroyed, and we might no longer be enslaved to sin. Rom 6:6 Slide 41 Therefore do not let sin reign in your mortal body, that you should obey it in its lusts. Rom 6:12 Slide 42 And do not present your members as instruments of unrighteousness to sin, but present yourselves to God as being alive from the dead, and your members as instruments of righteousness to God. mhde. parista,nete [p.a. imper] ta. me,lh u`mw/n o[pla avdiki,aj th/| a`marti,a|( avlla. parasth,sate [a. a. imper] e`autou.j tw/| qew/| w`sei. evk nekrw/n zw/ntaj kai. ta. me,lh u`mw/n o[pla dikaiosu,nhj tw/| Slide 43 For sin shall not have dominion over you, for you are not under law but under grace. a`marti,a ga.r u`mw/n ouv kurieu,sei\ ouv ga,r evste [p.a. ind.] u`po. no,mon avlla. u`po. ca,rin Rom 6:14 Slide 44 ...
