PostSubject: Justification by faith   Mon Nov 15, 2010 9:07 pm

It’s from the letter to the Romans.
8:1-3
8:28-39
10:4-15

The same letter also tells us
8:4-13

Did Paul quote verses from Old Testament in vain?
Rom 10:6-8 is from Deut 30:12-14.
Can we ignore Deut 30:11 and 30:15-16?

Rom 10:11 is from Isaiah 28:16.
Do you know why God said that in Isaiah 28:16?
Surprisingly we see Isaiah 28:7-15.

Rom 10:13 is from Joel 2:32. What is the book of Joel about? Punishment and repentance.

Rom 10:15 is from Isaiah 52:7. What do we have to do after hearing the good news? See Isaiah 52:11.

Rom 10:18 is from Psalm 19:4. What is Psalm 19 about? See Psalm 19:7-14.

Rom 10:20-21 is from Isaiah 65:1-2. Why would God say Israel is an obstinate people? See Isaiah 65:3-5.

Now what does Rom 11:11-22 mean?

I hope it's time well "wasted".

PostSubject: The righteous will live by faith   Sat May 13, 2017 8:47 pm

Romans 1:17 ...the righteous will live by faith. What does it mean?

Without prejudice from the context, Paul compared the situation of the believers in Rome to that of the believers in Habakkuk's time. i.e. both of them lived in a depraved society and longed for God's intervention but He seemed to be slow to act. The righteous will live by faith was God's answer to Habakkuk.


Here's an extract from

http://ancienthebrewpoetry.typepad.com/ancient_hebrew_poetry/2009/03/habakkuk-24.html

A 1st cent. ce exegete, Paul of Tarsus, did likewise (Rom 1:17; Gal 3:11). Not that his take on the text decides the sense of the original. On the other hand, it is not unusual for ancient authors to understand a traditional text in conformity with its plain sense.

However one interprets the particulars of 2:4b, the gist, as we shall see, remains the same: the upright person, in the face of injustice and calamity, will live out his life on the basis of trust in the trustworthiness of the vision vouchsafed to the prophet, namely, that an end to the calamitous situation will come, and not delay.

The grammar and referentiality of 2:4b can be understood in any of the following ways:

(1)    The upright one will live (in the midst of the current crisis) on the basis of his ‘trustingness,’ his faith-in / faithfulness-to (the vision and the counsel of the giver of the vision)

(2)    The upright one will live (in the midst of the current crisis) on the basis of its (the vision’s) truthfulness.

(3)    The upright one will live (in the midst of the current crisis) on the basis of *my* (God’s) faithfulness (so LXX originally, per S, B, Q, V, and Wa).

(4)    The upright one will live (in the midst of the current crisis) on the basis of ‘faith in it’ (the vision).
