The book of Romans has always been described as Apostle Paul’s discourse on the fundamentals of faith. Indeed he used much of that epistle to speak about this subject. In this seminar we will look at whether there is more to it than we have understood, we will look at this epistle to ask what compelled the Apostle to write to a church that he had not planted and had not yet visited, was there an issue in among the believers in that city caused him to write this epistle?
We will look at various aspects of this book :
A. The writer himself; what does the Bible tell us about him?
B.The situation of the believers in Rome
- What was it like to be a follower of a Jewish Messiah in a pagan culture?
- What kind of pressure did Roman society place on the people in the Empire?
- How does all this apply to us today?
C.The church in Rome
- What kind of people made up the church in first century?
- Was there a major cultural difference between the people in the church?
D.How does Israel factor in this epistle, since the Apostle dedicated 3 whole chapters to this subject:
- Romans 9 – The gifts and calling of Israel
- Romans 10 – The necessity of Jewish Salvation
- Romans 11 – The Olive Tree Theology
