Romans 3-5 – One New Man
Our current cultural moment is consumed by discussion of race. Biblically and theologically, there is only one race – the human race – made up of a multiplicity of ethnic groups. Race is a construct that was developed in the 19th century in order to subjugate entire people groups as inferior based on skin color. The gospel of Jesus Christ is that a new, restored humanity has been established and inaugurated. Within this new humanity, our ultimate identity is in Jesus Christ, who renews and restores every part of us into His image and likeness.
