Morna Hooker asks if this sequence of events of the “metanarrative” in Romans is too often uncritically assumed:

God’s creation, Adam’s Fall, the call of Israel and her failure to obey God, the sending of God’s Son, our reconciliation to God in him, the new life of those led by the Holy Spirit, and the final restoration of creation.
