God's justice is not like what the empire calls justiceThis guy is really into Paul.

One of Tripp’s favorite NT scholars is featured in this Barrel Aged episode: Neil Elliott is on talking about his book, The Arrogance of Nations, plus how we can re-frame the Roman Road. It’s not about Christian identity, but about issues of justice and power.

Get an orientation about the world Paul existed in, and what role Paul played in that world. And make sure you around to the end, because Neil gives advice to ministers who are wrestling with these texts in the American imperial context:

  • What does it mean to live faithfully a robust Pauline Christianity in today’s political landscape?
  • Does Romans 1 really condemn homosexuality?
  • How is God’s justice different from the empire’s justice?
