Free Study on Book Romans notes pdf audioThe book of Romans Ch. 5 with J. Vernon McGee.  I cut my teeth as a babe in Christ with Thru The Bible Radio. Dr. McGee takes us into the heart of faith!  Works vs. Faith.  Today’s world religions & cults are ALL WORKS driven.  What a blessing we have in Christ Jesus!


v. 2 We have access to the Father any time our righteousness is based on faith. When our righteousness is based on our keeping the law, access to the Father depends on our works.

v. 3 The trials that come into our lives promote spiritual growth.

v. 6-8 Christ died for sinners, not “righteous” people (Mark 2:17).

Romans Chapter 5 Expositional Commentary & Notes

Justification by faith — results derived, Romans 5:1-11
Eight benefits:
1) Peace, Romans 5:1
2) Access, Romans 5:2
3) Hope, vs. 2
4) Patience — fruit of tribulations, Romans 5:3
5) Love, Romans 5:5
6) Holy Spirit, vs. 5
7) Deliverance from the Great Tribulation, Romans 5:9
8) Joy, Romans 5:11
Reconciliation is toward man. Definition: Change from
enmity to friendship. Justification by faith is an act of God
which is permanent.
B. Sanctification of the saint, Chapters 5:12 — 8:39
1. Potential sanctification, 5:12-21
Federal headship of Adam and Christ
a. Headship of Adam, vv. 12-14
Death — sin
b. Headship of Christ, vv. 15-17
Life — righteousness
c. Offense of Adam vs. righteousness of Christ, vv. 18-21
Disobedience vs. Obedience
Judgment vs. Free Gift
Sin vs. Grace
Condemnation vs. Justification

v. 9-10 Christ died for us when we were sinners and reconciled us to God. Now He establishes our relationship with God through His life.

v. 11 The word “atonement” in the Old Testament meant “covering.” The blood of the sacrifices was to cover the sins of the people, but it couldn’t put away their sins. In the New Testament, “atonement” means “at one-ment,” because Christ’s death put away our sins and made us one with Him.

v. 12-14 When Adam sinned he brought sin into the world, and every man after him was born a sinner.

v. 15 One man brought sin into the world, and one Man died for the forgiveness of the world’s sins.

v. 18 Adam’s sin brought condemnation on us; Christ’s death bought justification for us.

 Chuck Smith Outline Notes



But God commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us. Romans 5:8
