Chapter Summary

When Paul begins to unfold his gospel in Rom 1:16-17, he introduces his gospel as the power of God for salvation to all believers. The interactive paradigm appears as the main descriptive framework in Rom 1:18-5:11, and the two-realm framework is shown in Rom 5:12-8:39. Lastly, a very important feature in the new salvific interactive paradigm is the stress on divine initiative and human faith. As to the stress on human belief, Paul explains its significance by the use of Abraham's case as an example in Romans 4. Paul's gospel in Rom 1:16-8:39 has been regarded as the core of his theology. This chapter concludes that this study is meaningful because the suggested linguistic methodology is helpful in identifying not only the topical issues in each discourse unit, but also the overall topical structure and the peak points of Paul's gospel.
