Objection concerning the case of Abraham; one covenant of grace in all ages; Abraham could not boast; exposition of Genesis 15:16; meaning of 'faith' and 'impute'.
Grace and debt; justifying the ungodly; the robe of righteousness; David's experience in Psalm 32; salvation entirely in God's hands; the acid test.
Two further objections answered; faith and circumcision; the seal of justification; faith and the law; law and promise; 'the seed'.
The nature of law is contrary to promise; grace and faith fit together; salvation for all the 'seed'; whether Jews or Gentiles; salvation certain because it is by God's grace.
An illustration of faith; the elements of real faith; in every application; the achievements of Abraham's faith; strengthened by faith.
Faith glorifies God in His being and attributes; weak faith is genuine faith; difference between knowledge and practice; faith and foolhardiness distinguished; the way to be strong in faith.
Abraham's faith applied to us; God-centred faith; the significance of Christ's resurrection; how the resurrection justifies; practical application of the comparison with Abraham.
The condition of the world and man; how can a person know that his/her soul is safe? an offence against God; the only way to know God; who was this Jesus? the impossibility of living a life that pleases God; delivered from our offences.
God delivered up His Son for our sins; how can one be right with God? man's standards are not acceptable; God's standards; the example of Abraham; Christ died for you; believe God; the new birth; not works; but faith.
