[ 1 minutes to read ]This study takes up the motif of glory in Paul’s letter to the Romans, which is an under explored area of scholarship. Glory in Romans has to do with God’s glory and the display of his glory by human beings. Obviously, humans rejected that glory and fell short of it, beginning in Adam. But, in Christ, the second Adam, sons of Adam are justified and giving sure hope of future glory.
This is a helpful study. The author goes through the entire letter, focusing on Paul’s use of the doxa word group and relevant passages that may not necessarily use the word group. The study does suffer somewhat from over realized eschatology and supersessionism.
