4 I. An introduction to Romans [1:1-17] A.righteousness of God is revealed… [3:21-26] justified by faith apart from the deeds of the law II. ALL are condemned [1:18 – 3:20] R O M A N S 3:21 – 4:25 III. ALL are justified by faith [3:21 – 4:25]

5 the righteousness of God [3:21-26] As already seen in 1:17-18, the righteousness of God is revealed because the wrath of God has been revealed [cp. carefully 3:20-21] righteousness is from the same Greek root as justified [3:20, 24]; Gods justice is in view R O M A N S 3:21 – 4:25 justified by faith apart from the deeds of the law

6 the righteousness of God [3:21-26] righteousness is from the same Greek root as justified [3:20, 24]; Gods justice is in view His righteousness is now revealed apart from law [v. 21; cp. revealed from faith; 1:17] Since by the deeds of the law no flesh will be justified (no righteousness!), justification is now revealed to be by other means: faith R O M A N S 3:21 – 4:25 justified by faith apart from the deeds of the law Bad news is followed by good news; those who are guilty and condemned by law can be justified by faith and forgiven [cp. Acts 13:38-39]

7 the righteousness of God [3:21-26] righteousness is from the same Greek root as justified [3:20, 24]; Gods justice is in view His righteousness is now revealed apart from law [v. 21; cp. revealed from faith; 1:17] Jews advantage in having the oracles [3:2] R O M A N S 3:21 – 4:25 justified by faith apart from the deeds of the law Paul already cited Hab 2:4 in Rom 1:17; Hab. understood that the just shall live by his faith His righteousness is witnessed by the Law and the Prophets; shouldnt be news to Jews Paul will argue next that Abraham (as the law witnesses) proves justification is by faith [ch 4]

8 the righteousness of God [3:21-26] righteousness is from the same Greek root as justified [3:20, 24]; Gods justice is in view His righteousness is now revealed apart from law [v. 21; cp. revealed from faith – 1:17] cp. Jer 50:20; Jesus is the means of a pardon R O M A N S 3:21 – 4:25 justified by faith apart from the deeds of the law All have become guilty by law [3:20, 23]; now to all…who believe God offers pardon [3:22] His righteousness is witnessed by the Law and the Prophets; shouldnt be news to Jews His righteousness is through faith in Jesus Christ [v. 22; not by being innocent in the law] This is righteousness and justification; God pardons, forgives the wrong, and declares even the guilty one to be just [notinnocent] by faith

9 the righteousness of God [3:21-26] righteousness is from the same Greek root as justified [3:20, 24]; Gods justice is in view His righteousness is now revealed apart from law [v. 21; cp. revealed from faith – 1:17] God justifies not based on merit [law]; is a gift R O M A N S 3:21 – 4:25 justified by faith apart from the deeds of the law The gift: accepting Christs blood as substitute His righteousness is witnessed by the Law and the Prophets; shouldnt be news to Jews His righteousness is through faith in Jesus Christ [v. 22; not by being innocent in the law] His righteousness is by His grace [v. 24] FAITH is OUR PART: We must believe on Christ in order to become justified GRACE is HIS PART: He set forth Christs blood as a propitiation (a substitute He will accept); if not for this gift, no salvation cp. Eph 2:8; Mk 16:16

10 the righteousness of God [3:21-26] righteousness is from the same Greek root as justified [3:20, 24]; Gods justice is in view His righteousness is now revealed apart from law [v. 21; cp. revealed from faith – 1:17] R O M A N S 3:21 – 4:25 justified by faith apart from the deeds of the law He is just and the justifier of those with faith His righteousness is witnessed by the Law and the Prophets; shouldnt be news to Jews His righteousness is through faith in Jesus Christ [v. 22; not by being innocent in the law] His righteousness is by His grace [v. 24] He demonstrates His righteousness [3:25-26] He is JUST: The price was paid for all those sins He overlooked [3:25]; paid in Christs blood [Heb 9:22; Lev 17:11] He is JUSTIFIER: justification by faith explains how He was able to forgive David [cp. 4:5-8] and how He now forgives even us! to demonstrate His righteousness

11 I. An introduction to Romans [1:1-17] A.righteousness of God is revealed… [3:21-26] B. The consequences of this doctrine [3:27-31]: justified by faith apart from the deeds of the law II. ALL are condemned [1:18 – 3:20] R O M A N S 3:21 – 4:25 III. ALL are justified by faith [3:21 – 4:25]

12 The natural consequences [3:27-31] by what law?: a law of works tends rather to promote boasting [Phil 3:9; Eph 2:9; Rom 10] Boasting is excluded; merit is out [3:27-28] R O M A N S 3:21 – 4:25 justified by faith apart from the deeds of the law a law of [justification by] faith tends rather to promote reliance on God; man recognizes his own helplessness and admits being a sinner [see Luke 18:9-14; Mark 2:16-17; self vs. God]

13 The natural consequences [3:27-31] If salvation (justification) were by Jewish Law, Gentiles would be excluded [cp. Eph 2:11-12] Boasting is excluded; merit is out [3:27-28] R O M A N S 3:21 – 4:25 justified by faith apart from the deeds of the law However, one and the same God will justify both Jew and Gentile by faith [rather than by law], and will establish Himself as the one God the Jews always taught He is [cp. Deut. 6:4; Dan. 6:20; Josh. 2:11; etc.] God is manifest as God over all men [3:29-30]

14 The natural consequences [3:27-31] It is the law that exacts shedding of blood to pay the price for sin! [Lev 17:11; etc.] Boasting is excluded; merit is out [3:27-28] R O M A N S 3:21 – 4:25 justified by faith apart from the deeds of the law God is not like the unjust Jews who void the law [cp. Pharisees, Mt 15:1-6; Is 5:23]; He upholds law and carries it to its full end God is manifest as God over all men [3:29-30] The [purpose of] law is established [3:31] Law has been useful for both Gentile and Jew in pointing out sin [cp. 2:12-15; 3:19]

15 The natural consequences [3:27-31] Boasting is excluded; merit is out [3:27-28] R O M A N S 3:21 – 4:25 justified by faith apart from the deeds of the law God is manifest as God over all men [3:29-30] The [purpose of] law is established [3:31] Next study: these 3 consequences observed in the example of Abraham, proving that Gods plan all along was justification by way of faith

16 HOWEVER… …the gospel of Christ…is the power of God to salvation for everyone who believes… For in it the righteousness of God is revealed from faith… Have your deeds brought you only the knowledge of sin? You need the gospel offer of a pardon: righteousness (justification)…from faith! Wont you believe and OBEY today? …for all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God…[Rm 3:23] Therefore by the deeds of the law no flesh will be justified in His sight, for by the law is the knowledge of sin [Rom 3:10, 20; 6:23]
