Romans: The Gospel of Salvation
Wednesdays, October 2—November 20
Mornings: 9:30 am—11:00 am
Evenings: 7:30 pm—9:00 pm
Join us as we study Paul’s letter to the Romans which has been at the center of reflection, conversion, and controversy from the very beginning. Romans: The Gospel of Salvation provides an authentically Catholic, comprehensive, and simple way to understand the overarching theme of Romans—salvation.
In this 8-session program, theology professor Dr. Andrew Swafford and Jeff Cavins examine Paul’s letter to the Romans. Through video presentations, Dr. Swafford and Cavins provide historical context and highlight the connections to Jesus and Christianity Paul makes with the Old Testament.
In Romans: The Gospel of Salvation, Catholics will learn...
· The Catholic teaching on salvation
· How to explain salvation to non-Christians
· What is required for salvation—faith or works
· What Paul really means by “works” not leading to salvation
· How Christ’s death changed our relationship with God
· The meaning of the difficult passages in Romans
· How we can enter more deeply into Christ
Through home reading assignments, study questions and responses, and talk notes designed to accompany the videos, participants will learn that salvation is not merely the removal of a guilty verdict. Salvation is about entering into Christ’s life and death and sharing in his eternal sonship.
Participants in the Romans: The Gospel of Salvation study program should have a Catholic Bible.
The cost of the workbook will be $30.00. Couples may share materials. Both sessions of this Bible Study will meet in The Pointe.
