Romans 3: Initial Justification: By the Cross, Not the Law – John Boruff

The Apostle Paul makes the distinction between cheap grace antinomianism (3:5-8) and Jewish ‘law-salvation’ (3:20-21, 28) from his Gospel, which brings wretched, depraved sinners into a right relationship with God on the basis of faith alone in the blood of Jesus (3:25). Far from reaching a lawless antinomian outcome, Paul says this faith in the blood of Christ leads Christians to “uphold the law” by holy living (3:31).

Correction

15:38 – A glitch in the video makes my voice sound unnaturally deep, like Darth Vader! Sorry. Turns out it highlighted an important point I was trying to make! To God be the glory! “No one will be declared righteous in His sight by the works of the law (Romans 3:20a).
