ROMANS, CLASS THREE
More in the early verses of Romans, Ch. 1; Plus, more overview/preview:
Dale teaches us that the fundamental issue/problem, as Paul presents it in Romans, is indwelling sin. Paul writes that the solution is practical righteousness, walking by faith, under the guidance of the Holy Spirit. Dale says, “You have been saved. You ought to be being saved, so that you can be saved. That’s salvation in the scriptures.”
ROMANS, CLASS FOUR
Romans 1:16-17, Dale “picks them apart”
1) What’s the “gospel”? Some translations say “Gospel of Christ” Some leave out “of Christ”. These verses — Romans 1:1-15 — show us that, in the phrase “For it”, “it” could be “He”, referring to Christ. The “it” in the very next verses should also be translated “he”, but this time referring to the believer.
2) What’s “salvation”? only in Romans Romans 5:9-10 Chapters 9, 10, 11 3) What’s “Righteousness of God” in Romans? How does the “Righteousness of God” relate to our position & our practice?

In Chapter, Paul dealt with the problem Gentiles (who are believers) need to deal with. Starting with Chapter 2:1, we see a problem for the Jew. Turns out, we”re all in the same boat, whether we have the Law (Jews) or do not have the Law (Gentiles).

ROMANS CLASS XVI (Recorded on 11/14/13) BISON BIBLE STUDY w/ Dr. Dale Taliaferro
Romans 3:9-20. Not about “total depravity” (as traditionally taught), but “indwelling sin”. Whether a believer has the law (Messianic Jews) or does not have the law (Gentile believers), the law is not the issue. It is that we are all plagued by indwelling sin. And works are no good, unless done by faith. We should be in constant communication with God, seeking His Will every waking minute of the day, praying, in faith, before we sleep. Faith is the issue, coupled with living righteously, by faith.

ROMANS CLASS XVII (Recorded on 11/21/13) BISON BIBLE STUDY w/ Dr. Dale Taliaferro Romans 3:21-26
Dale says these passages, Romans 3:21-26 and Ephesians 1:3-14 are widely regarded as the two most important sentences in the Bible. He says this view goes on to say, If you get these 2 sentences right, “you’ll never have any problems” (with what, he didn’t say), Dale changes the heading for Roman numeral III in the outline, to say A RIGHTEOUS LIFE HAS ALWAYS BEEN MANIFESTED THE SAME WAY. Dale further explains his new understanding of the meaning of the word “justification”, and how it’s not a once and for all event. It’s not about the faith/belief that guarantees Heaven and joining the family of God, which is a once and for all event.

ROMANS CLASS XVIII (Recorded on 01/23/14) BISON BIBLE STUDY w/ Dr. Dale Taliaferro
Romans 3:21 & following
Dale says Romans 3:21-26 Dale says this is very important to get: Justification comes by faith apart from works…<strong><em>of the Law </em></strong><em>(</em><em>which is not what he says he was taught, but now believes to be true. [Also see Romans 3:28]) III. A RIGHTEOUS LIFE HAS ALWAYS BEEN MANIFESTED THE SAME WAY. 3:21—4:25 We’re actually up to Romans 3:24, but he’s starting again in 2014 with verse 21 to make sure we understand the important new understanding of this paragraph.

ROMANS CLASS XIX (This is a substitute for the study originally done on 01/30/14) BISON BIBLE STUDY w/ Dr. Dale Taliaferro
We learn Jesus is our “Mercy Seat” every time we respond in faith & trust in the death of Jesus on the cross to cleanse (wash away) our sins, not just cover them, as happened with the old animal sacrifice system. That’s no longer needed. Dale boldly declares Jesus is neither our atonement (the OT system) or justification.

ROMANS CLASS XXIV (Recorded on 03/06/14) BISON BIBLE STUDY w/ Dr. Dale Taliaferro
030614 BISON BIBLE STUDY w/ Dr. Dale Taliaferro Romans 4:6
“made well” can be translated “saved”. Paul uses David’s sin w/Bathsheba to illustrate “justification”. Paul argues Abraham didn’t have the law & he was justified
David had the law & he was justified after the above sin because David repented. “My mercy is new every morning”. The forgiveness Paul talks about in Romans 4 refers to an act of God that maintains fellowship with Him. True for David — a Jew w/the law — and Abraham, who represents the Gentile (“the original heathen in Africa”…before the law….1 John 1:7 tells us God is automatically applying His son’s death/blood to us as we walk through the day, and commit sins we don’t even know about — and for which we don’t repent & ask for forgiveness. “This whole thing — Abraham & David — is about walking by faith.” How do you change a flat tire “by faith”. “Faith is faith is faith”. We’re doing it all the time, or should be. It’s how you respond to flat tires, phone calls (called ID) — whatever.
There’s not only no “limited atonement”, there is no “atonement”, at all. Atonement “covered” sins, Jesus’ death cleansed them, washed them away. The “lamb who takes (“is taking”) away the sins of the world” (John 1:29). Importance is, it is present tense. Benefit of cross was already being applied all the way back to Adam & Eve once Jesus came, even before He died. Re-establishing relationship between man & God. “Faith is your response to God”.
“All Jesus is is the continuation of what was promised in the OT.”
John 12:44: Faith in Jesus is faith in Him who sent Jesus — God the Father.
Adding 3.e. — circumcision is a sign of a covenant that is a land grant, which is only to the Jews. But God is the Father of the circumcised & the uncircumcised.
Circumcision is a seal that the promise of a land has been believed. Get circumcised or be cut off (Jeremiah 31:31-33)

032014 BISON BIBLE STUDY w/ Dr. Dale Taliaferro Romans 4:13-17+
Further understanding of just how “justification” works. And it’s probably not what you’ve been taught. “Not a one time deal”, says Dale, not what Paul is talking about. How was Abraham justified? OT/NT, the same. Just as God is the same. “Jesus Christ is the same yesterday and today and forever.” – Hebrews 13:8 (NIV). Lots more!

ROMANS CLASS XXVIII (Recorded on 04/03/14) BISON BIBLE STUDY w/ Dr. Dale Taliaferro
040314 BISON BIBLE STUDY.Romans 5. Dale calls this the most difficult chapter of the Bible that he’s ever studied! God is telling every man what is right. It’s better to have the Bible, to help us know how to live righteously, but it’s not required. The believer should always be asking himself, “What does God have for me?”, in every situation, even when attending church on Sundays.

ROMANS CLASS XXIX (Recorded on 04/10/14) BISON BIBLE STUDY w/ Dr. Dale Taliaferro
041014 BISON BIBLE STUDY Romans 5:3-11 Some of the highlights: Because a believer is united with Christ he/she has access to grace. But it is by our righteous works — done in faith, each day — that we utilize that access. The death of Christ deals with your walk. The blood of Christ is used daily, often, so we can be God’s presence and please God. Perseverance and patience only come through trials. Peace is always practical, not positional. The wrath of God is poured out now on anyone who is living unrighteously. When we do unrighteous acts, we store up God’s wrath, which is poured out on our personal day of wrath.
