I love this potential scene given by Scot McKnight of one of Paul’s house churches.
“Lets transport ourselves back to one of Paul’s house churches and imagine yet again the make-up of that group – the morally unkosher sitting with the unpowerful standing with an arm around the financially drained, addressed by an apostle who was being chased daily by opponents of the gospel. In that context, with all those people around, hear again the grand Yes of God.
‘Who can be against us?’ Paul tauntingly thunders. The answer, No one!”
