Did Jesus Teach Salvation By Works?: The Role of Works in Salvation in the Synoptic Gospels (The Evangelical Theological Society Monograph Series)

Alan Stanley

Paperback 2006-09-20

Publisher Description

Jesus teaches that regardless of one's profession, if one does not demonstrate a changed life produced by God, one will not enter into heaven. Such a judgment will be made when Jesus returns and judges every person according to his or her ""works."" While this may seem contradictory to some more well-known passages ruling out the role of works in salvation (e.g., Rom 3:21-4:25; Gal 2:16-21; Eph 2:8-9), there is every good reason to understand that Jesus' teachings complement such passages. The works that admit one into heaven are not works produced by the flesh before conversion but works produced by God after conversion. They will fundamentally be characterized by a life of discipleship, love for others, and endurance in faith and obedience, and will therefore serve to confirm that one indeed did have a relationship with God during one's life. ""A New Testament study that is worth pondering ... Stanley's study shows how ... God's grace is even greater than we have imagined, covering not only our justification, but our sanctification as well. Any work that shows the depth of God's great grace is worth commending. This is such a book."" --Darrell L. Bock, from the foreword ""This study is notable for its nuance, scope, and timeliness. Stanley's study commends itself to us not only because it is sound and wise, but also because its conclusions are currently urgent."" --Robert W. Yarbrough Trinity Evangelical Divinity School Alan P. Stanley teaches at Mueller College of Ministries in Queensland, Australia.
