The Most Important Passage in the Whole of Scripture – Revisited

This is an excellent short post by Michael Kruger. Anyone who has studied the legalistic requirements of the Law in the Old Testament, anyone who pondered the requirement to “Be holy because I am holy.” 1 Peter 1:16 or “Be perfect, therefore, as your heavenly Father is perfect.” Matt 5:48 will note the HUGE significance of acquiring a righteous status before God through faith in Christ as this post clarifies. Please note that all 42 episodes of Michael Kruger’s study of Romans is now available on YouTube in HD. Click this link for info: all-42-episodes-of-my-romans-bible-study

The Apostle Paul’s Epistle to the Romans, as you probably know, is one of the most important books in the New Testament. It is where the Apostle Paul hammers out many of our Christian doctrines. If you have never done a detailed study of Romans I would strongly encourage you to do so. This specific study was designed as a “regular” Bible Study for regular people, even though it was presented at a leading seminary. An excellent opportunity awaits you if you are open to it!

  1. Hi Bruce, I wanted to let you know this in case it’s a glitch on your end. When I look for your blog on “Reader” it doesn’t come up. Whether I put in “Bruce Cooper” or “Reasoned Cases for Christ”, your blog does not pop up. And I am following it. I have to either find a place where you “liked” me, or find where it appeared in the Reader Window with all the latest postings to get to your blog. Thought this might be useful information. Blessings, Brother!

  2. Thanks for passing along this good article, Bruce. When the Holy Spirit light went on in my head 38 years ago and I understood salvation was ALL by faith in Jesus Christ the Savior, not by my “good” works, I wanted to run down the street and shout “Eureka” at the top of my lungs, an indescribable epiphany moment like those YouTube videos of young children seeing or hearing for the first time after surgery, but even better.

    • I know what you mean Tom. When we earnestly begin to try to be holy, it slowly begins to dawn on us that there is just no possible way it can be done, not in and of ourselves and then the realization that it is because of this very fact, that we cannot be perfect on our own, that Jesus came and because He was without sin, could do for us what we could not do, and He is our righteousness., that one has to say, thank you Lord, so very very much. Up a creek without a paddle and Jesus throws us His life line. Saviour indeed, Blessings!
