Epistle to the Romans

General Information

The Epistle to the Romans is the longest of Saint Paul's letters and is therefore placed first among the letters in the New Testament of the Bible. It is an essay presenting some of Paul's ideas on salvation than a response to particular problems.

Chapters 1 - 4 gives the theme of justification by Faith. Chapters 5 - 8 show the effect of salvation on humans. In chapters 9 - 11, Paul tries to fathom God's plan for the Jews, his chosen people, who have not followed Jesus. The implications for Christian life of Jesus, faith, and salvation are drawn out in chapters 12 - 15.
