The Book of Romans is the first and only systematic theology written by an apostle of Christ, and it is perhaps the best ever. The “Roman Road” gives a clear path from Condemnation (chaps 1-3) to Justification (chaps 3-5) to Sanctification (chaps 6-8). The book also dealt with the issue of Israel Nation (chaps 9-11). After the above sections on the theory of the theology of salvation, it also provides a section on its Application (chaps 12-16), which we find to be related to the Beatitudes (Matt 5:3-10). This is a 108 lesson, 2 ½ year long journey for our church. You are invited to enjoy the ride with us.
We will post about twenty-five sermons per web page in this series. Each entry will include the audio file as originally preached at Abilene Bible Church along with the sermon handouts in PDF form.
