The aim was explicitly not to master Romans 9-11 but rather to engage our hearts with the gospel and enjoy Jesus together - which is frankly far more important. Understanding is never ultimate - Jesus is. You can download the Romans sessions for your progress and joy in the Lord here, each about 50mins long here.
- Session 1, on Romans 9 and the big questions that threaten to undermine the glory of the gospel - addressing the great insecurity of the gospel promises of Romans 8, the answer to which is found in the sovereign grace of God.
- Session 2, continuing Romans 9 and 10 and the paradox of God's sovereignty and human responsiblity.
- Session 3, on Romans 11 and the place of law and grace for Christians, what should we be teaching children in Sunday School and a detour into Galatians 3-4.
- Session 4, continuing on grace and affections with Piper, Edwards and Thomas Chalmers and Romans 11 and the immense mercy of God.
