Brian Rosner on Paul and the Law

If you’re anywhere in or around Sydney in August, don’t miss Brian Rosner’s lecture series. This is a very important topic. I’m guessing the lecture series will touch on issues like: What does the Old Testament law have to do with Jesus? Will God judge me based on whether I keep the law? What does the Old Testament law have to do with the way I live day by day? Brian is a world-class scholar in the field and I’m sure his answers will be worth hearing. Wish I was there!
