From studying Paul’s letter to the Romans, we can learn the content of the Christian faith like nowhere else in the New Testament. Paul’s words are loaded with divine truth and require careful study and thought. Indeed the letter to the Romans is a theological jewel, but Paul’s discussions in the letter are sensible and practical.
As the name of the letter indicates, Paul wrote it to a church in a city known as Rome. At the same time without knowing it, he wrote it to the whole world and for all the ages, supporting the efforts of cross-cultural ministry and providing a key to understanding the Bible. So even though this great letter was addressed to the saints in Rome during the first century, its message is eternal, and its mandates are universal. French L. Arrington
