Converts to Christianity!!!!! From saul to paul
People of faith didn't think he was a true Christian

Peter has a vision which makes it clear that Gentiles are an appropriate audience
Peter was preaching to circumcised and Paul for the uncircumcised
Paul is teaching with the authority of the revelation of Jesus Christ → not a human
Goes to Rome (a major city with many people)
Paul is not interested in Jesus life on earth
Paul only thinks Jesus’s death and resurrection was important
That Jesus is the sacrifice that pays for our sins
Didn't think people had to follow Jewish laws
New religion (did not need to be circumcised or avoid pork)
(CQ)Paul thinks that keeping Jewish laws is helpful for salvation is wrong or sinful
If you think that you need to keep the law, it suggests that God’s sacrifice is not
“You who want to justify yourself by the law, means that you are cutting yourself
off from God’s sacrifice”
Christ redeemed us from the curse of the law
Paul warns the people for the liberty to not live lawlessly and not to indulge in the flesh
Be led by the spirit; do not be misled by your freedom.
Paul “apostle to the Gentiles”
Faith vs. works [a new contract]
Grace vs. law [a new era]
Law cannot save us from sinning
We are all sinners, but Jesus saves us with his sacrifice of atonement
No benefit of being a Jew
Spirit vs flesh [new man vs old]
