Every prophetic view (futurist and preterist) uses the book of Romans as a source for its particular approach to fulfillment. How we interpret Romans can make a big difference not only in our eschatological perspectives, but in our understanding of salvation as well. In this introduction, we note that the book of Romans is not talking about a collective body resurrection of the church out of Judaism, but rather about the Jew-Gentile unity in the Kingdom that was achieved by grafting the Gentiles into the rich olive tree of true spiritual Israel. You will want to listen to this introductory podcast before listening to any of the succeeding ones on Romans.
