God’s Outsized Faithfulness: Rethinking Romans

Dr. Beverly Roberts Gaventa
4:00 p.m. God's Outsized Faithfulness to Israel: Thinking Again about Romans 9-11
7:30 p.m. Questions about Torah, Answers about Christ: A Strange Silence in Romans 9-11

In Romans 9-11, Paul addresses at length God's dealings with Israel—past, present, and future. It is a peculiar account, both in content and in form. Here God creates trips, and rescues Israel. And here Israel is redefined without the Law and with Christ.
