Romans, A Wonderful Letter Essay

Decent Essays

Romans is a wonderful letter, written by Paul in 56 A.D. to the believers in Rome. At the time of it’s composition, Paul was in Corinth on his third missionary journey. Paul explains that his audience is the Christians of Rome (1:7), and that his desire is for them to read what he has to say.

Paul’s purpose in writing to the saints of Rome was to proclaim the gospel to both the Greek and Jewish believers. As evidenced in Romans 1:16-17, we can see Paul emphatically and passionately scratching out his letter: “I am not ashamed of the gospel, because it is God’s power for salvation to everyone who believes, first to the Jew, and also to the Greek. For in it God’s righteousness is revealed from faith to faith, just as it is written: The righteous will live by faith”. Paul was very intentional and honest to his audience. He wanted his readers from the beginning of his letter to realize that the gospel is for all people. This is important for people to grasp. The gospel is for all people, and that is the theme I would personally use for teaching Romans.
