Interview with Dr. Sylvia Keesmaat and Dr. Brian Walsh: Resisting Empire in the Book of Romans
Last Updated June 21, 2020
This week Biblical Scholar Dr. Sylvia Keesmaat and Theologian Dr. Brian Walsh talk about what Paul was up to in the book of Romans. We visit topics like salvation and politics and how maybe those words don’t mean what we thought when it comes to the New Testament.
Pithy, shareable, less-than-280-character statements you can share.
“It seems to me that asking the question of atonement in Romans, is perhaps asking the wrong question.” Brian Walsh
“Basically, [I] try to help people imagine what it’s like to live into this story, and try to imagine what it was like for people in the 1st-century to live into this story, and what we might learn from that.” Sylvia Keesmaat
