The New Inheritance According to Paul

The Letter to the Romans re-enacts for all peoples the Israelite Exodus from Egypt to the Promised Land—from slavery to freedom.

By N. T. Wright

Bible Review

Most of the major questions about Paul’s Letter to the Romans relate to Paul’s puzzling sequence of thought. Why, for instance, does Paul have so much to say about Abraham, Israel and the promises of God in chapters1–4 and 9–11, and so little in chapters 5–8? Is there a logical transition between chapters 1–4, 5–8 and 9–11?
