Faith in the God who Gives Life

Romans 4:13-25

What is God Doing? What Sort of God is He?
We might think, ‘Why so much about Abraham? Tell us about Jesus!’ Paul knows that if Jesus is cut off from Scripture and Israel, nothing about him makes sense or has any power. It is because of all that God has done from Abraham through Israel to Jesus that we can see what is at stake in the events of the Gospel. Events require context to manifest meaning.
