Romans 1

Views: 45 Title: Romans 1
Message Description:

Romans is Paul’s magnum opus. It is sixteen chapters of the Faith in detail. The earliest chapters start with the problem to help us understand God’s solution near the middle.

In Martin Luther’s preface to the Book of Romans he wrote: “We find in this letter, then, the richest possible teaching about what a Christian should know: the meaning of law, Gospel, sin, punishment, grace, faith, justice, Christ, God, good works, love, hope and the cross. We learn how we are to act toward everyone, toward the virtuous and sinful, toward the strong and the weak, friend and foe, and toward ourselves. Paul bases everything firmly on Scripture and proves his points with examples from his own experience and from the Prophets, so that nothing more could be desired. Therefore it seems that St. Paul, in writing this letter, wanted to compose a summary of the whole of Christian and evangelical teaching which would also be an introduction to the whole Old Testament. Without doubt, whoever takes this letter to heart possesses the light and power of the Old Testament. Therefore each and every Christian should make this letter the habitual and constant object of his study. God grant us his grace to do so. Amen.” I don’t think there’s anything more I can say about why I’m beginning this video series than that.
