This sermon/lesson was delivered at the Princess Chapel Church in Ashland, KY by Pastor Douglas Salyer, the Exposition from Romans as part of the Expository Bible Study, verse by verse through the Book of Romans.
This lesson, Part-19 deals with Paul's continuing of the section on Justification. In that Justification is apart from Law, by faith in Christ and Christ alone.
Romans 4:9-12. the Apostle Paul shows the factual case here that Abraham the father of all those in the faith was justified outside of the circumcision.
In fact Abraham was called at age 75, imputed righteousness at 85. Ishmael is born when Abraham was 86. Name changed by God from Abram to Abraham at the age of 99. The also circumcised at the age of 99. All this was done 600 plus years before the giving of the Law.

'For what saith the scripture? Abraham believed God, and it was counted unto him for righteousness'. (Romans 4:3 - Paul is quoting Genesis 15:6).
