Description

This lecture is focused on the Holy Spirit's role in Pauline ethics. With emphasis on Paul's understanding of the Spirit against the flesh in Galatians 5:17 and Romans 7:14-25, Gordon Fee argues that life in Christ involves constant struggle between one's own flesh and the Spirit. By seeking to understand the texts in light of Paul's historical context, Fee answers how we can reconcile the believers' lives of struggle against sin with Paul's theology of Spirit without falling into the trap of triumphalism.
