1. In my judgment, one of the most difficult theological issues in the Bible is that of the believers relationship to the law of God. Since the word law is used 19 times in Romans 7, clearly that is Pauls theme. I was hoping that the Lord might come before I got to this chapter! I still have some time to be rescued before I get to the most difficult part! In Romans 7 Paul expounds on his statement in Romans 6:14, For sin shall not be master over you, for you are not under law, but under grace. In 6:15-23, he used the analogy of slavery to show that we will not sin under grace because we have become enslaved to God and righteousness. In chapter 7, he explains what it means to be free from the law and how this relates to breaking free from sins tyranny. The theme in chapter 6 was sin; Paul uses that word 17 times there. In his mind, there was a direct correlation between sin and the law. In 1 Corinthians 15:56 he says, The sting of death is sin, and the power of sin is the law. So there are several parallels between chapters 6 & 7 (Leon Morris, The Epistle to the Romans [Eerdmans/Apollos], p. 270): Believers have died to sin (6:2) and they have died to the law (7:4). We have been freed from sin (6:18, 22) and we are released from the law (7:6). We walk in newness of life (6:4) and we serve in newness of the Spirit (7:6). Our victory over sin is tied to our union with Christ in His death and resurrection (6:8-11). Our release from the law and its sin-arousing power is because we are now joined to the crucified and risen Lord (7:4).

1. The Starting Point. "The Holy Bible is like no other book in all the world. It is the only book which presents itself as the written revelation of the one true God, intended for the salvation of man, and demonstrating its divine authority by many infallible proofs" (Gleason L. Archer, Jr., A Survey of Old Testament Introduction, 1974, p. 15).
2. Genesis. Genesis is a book of beginnings. Genesis is a Greek word meaning origins, and this book gives the origins of the human family, of sin, of death and of God's revelation of His plan to buy humans back from sin and death.
3. Exodus. The book of Genesis ended with Abraham's descendants living in Egypt. Over time the Egyptians became frightened of this growing clan of Israelites and began to oppress them in slave labor.
4. Leviticus. The book of Leviticus was named after the tribe of Levi, the tribe God had given the responsibility to carry out the rules of worship. These rules emphasize and remind us of the holiness of God.
