Notes for this week’s study are available here.

About the image: Illustrates Romans 7:2-3, “if the husband dies, she is released from the law of her husband. … if … she marries another man … she is free from that law, so that she is no adulteress, though she has married another man”. A widow may remarry. Although the text is not primarily about widows remarrying, Paul uses this illustration.
