Reading Romans

Semester 2, 2021 at Trinity College Theological School

This unit provides an in-depth study of Paul’s letter to the Romans. Attention will be given to the historical context, epistolary genre and rhetorical style as a way to uncover the theological themes and issues emerging from the letter. We will look in detail at how Roman and Jewish hearers of the letter might have found quite different messages within it. Lastly, we will explore how this letter has shaped, and continues to shape, the theology of the church.

The class is offered as an intensive in Newcastle from 12–16 July 2021 [COVID permitting].
