Romans is the Apostle Paul’s great book of New Testament Theology. Paul, a bond-servant of Christ Jesus, called as an apostle, set apart for the gospel of God presents in this book a thorough development of that very gospel. Justification by Grace through Faith is the primary doctrine, following developments on total depravity, and the substitutionary death of Jesus Christ on the cross. The new life in Christ is then presented, with the personal battle against sin, and the unity of the Church highlighted.
“To the Romans” is named for the recipients of the epistle. By this time, Paul had still never been to the world capital, but his influence was already there in a home church hosted by Prisca and Aquila.
