Approach: Studying several passages together to see the contrast between God's grace and how human beings dispense favors.

Hermeneutic objective: Learning to use a word study to better understand the theological meaning of grace.

Theological objective: Divine grace is the unmerited favor of providing the means of salvation that came at unfathomable cost of the Giver and in fulfillment of God's covenant with Abraham. Note carefully that God's grace is the provision of the means of salvation not salvation itself.
