  1. RomansPaul’s Exposition of “Salvation by Grace Through Faith” Lesson 7a III. God’s Righteousness: Given Through Faith Romans 3:21 - 4:25 Page 45

  2. From the last lesson... • Abraham, the great example of righteousness by faith • Justified by faith, not works; • David confirms this conclusion; Now, Paul shows that: • Circumcision not connected to righteousness (9-12) • Keeping the law not connected to righteousness (13-15)

  3. B. Abraham, the Great Example of Righteousness By Faith Romans 4:1-25 • Circumcision not connected to righteousness (9-12) • We [Jews and Gentiles] all agree that Abraham attained righteousness apart from perfect obedience to law (9) • Whendid this happen? Before or after his circumcision? (10) • Answer: Not while circumcised but while uncircumcised (10)

  4. B. Abraham, the Great Example of Righteousness By Faith Romans 4:1-25 • Circumcision not connected to righteousness (9-12) (continued) • It happened when Abraham believed that he would have children (to become the father of all who believe) (11) (See Gen. 12:7) • His circumcision was a seal of the righteousness that he already had by faith (11) • His circumcision was a sign that he was in covenant relationship with God

  5. B. Abraham, the Great Example of Righteousness By Faith Romans 4:1-25 • Circumcision not connected to righteousness (9-12) (continued) • His faith was well before it was said that “he believed in the Lord” in Gen. 15:6 which was before he was told to be circumcised in Gen. 17:10 (12) • Circumcision and righteousness were two different things

  6. B. Abraham, the Great Example of Righteousness By Faith Romans 4:1-25 • Keeping the law not connected to righteousness (13-15) • It was not Abraham’s physical “seed” who would inherit the world (13) • This promise of the world is fulfilled in his spiritual seed (righteousness of faith) (13) • Law never provides forgiveness for those who violate its terms; it brings wrath (punishment) (15) • If blessing were received by the Law, faith would be irrelevant and promises of no effect (14)
