REL 210 Salvation: Christian Tradition

Scripture to be used:

I have selected to do my research paper on Romans 9:20-21. But who indeed are you, a human being, to talk back to God? Will what is made say to its maker, “why have you created me so?” Or does not the potter have a right over the clay to make out of the same lump one vessel for a noble purpose and another for an ignoble one?

Two Theologians from the syllabus:

St. Augustine uses Romans 9:21 at Grace and Free Choice (Augustine 99, resource workbook 1.169).

St. Augustine uses Romans 9:20 at The Gift of Perseverance (Augustine 200, resource workbook 1.248).

John Calvin uses Romans 9:20-21 at Commentary on Romans (Calvin 314, Commentary on Romans)

One Theologian not on the syllabus:

James R. Edwards uses Romans 9:21 at Romans (Gasque & Hubbard 5185, Understanding the Bible Commentary Series).
