Chapter Summary

From Rom 3:21, Paul begins to explain a different kind of interactive paradigm, focusing on the interaction between human faith and God's gracious salvation. There is evidence indicating Rom 3:21-4:25 as a new section. The major evidence is a new salvific interactive paradigm that God's saving righteousness is only to those who believe. The new salvific interactive paradigm has four important elements: (1) God's gracious initiative, in which the death and resurrection of Jesus are located at the center; (2) the role of human faith, which is the proper way to respond to God's initiative; (3) salvation, which is God's gift as a result of human response by faith; and (4) the universal scope of the beneficiaries of God's salvation.
