<212> Thesis: The establishment of man in the reality of the grace of God depends heavily upon the clearest of all possible presentations that, though the problems are real, the actions of God are "more real". Introduction: This evening we are going to begin a study of Paul's second major line of thought in chapter five. As we begin, I want to "set" this line of thought into its "context" -- both at the point of the "need of man" and at the point of the "provision of God". To do this, I want to point out some of the most basic facts regarding the second half of Romans five.
