Paul Axton preaches - Mary demonstrates the human temptation to linger at the tomb. Human culture and religion, along with contractual theology, would reify death but the Easter story empties the grave and the law of sin and death. Only in turning from the tomb can we see the risen Jesus.

In this third lecture on Romans Paul Axton deals with the difference between the "faith in" and "faith of" Christ and the difference between an objective cognitive faith as found in contractual theology and a holistic faithfulness, truer to the Greek and fitting the faithfulness of Abraham.
