Yes, I have missed updating this for a couple of weeks. I guess you’ll just have to show up to class yourself. You can jump right in, we move slowly! http://ziontomballtx.org/
1 Corinthians 1:30 (ESV)
And because of him you are in Christ Jesus, who became to us wisdom from God, righteousness and sanctification and redemption,
I don’t remember whether we discussed this note:
Paul traces from God (1) revelation given in His Word, (2) the acquittal won by His Son, (3) the holiness that follows for us, and (4) full salvation from sin and death. “This happens because of the righteousness of another, namely, of Christ” (Ap V 184).
–Edward A. Engelbrecht, The Lutheran Study Bible (St. Louis, MO: Concordia Publishing House, 2009), 1948.
We did, however, spend some time trying to figure out whether the Greek phrase at the top of the board meant:
- From Him…
- Because of Him
- Both or Something Else
