NEW TESTAMENT STUDY CLUB - Epistle To Romans
NEW TESTAMENT STUDY CLUB – Epistle To The Romans (KJV Version)
The previous sections of this NT study addressed the four Gospels and The Acts by the Holy Spirit.
The Introduction to this Club was stated as follows:
["Hello friends. The problem we often encounter with clubs is that it is hard to keep managing a club site, so I would like to set forth a club that has a format that will work even if the manager is not present. Does that seem like a good idea?
"This will be a site to share understandings of the New Testament (N.T.) for Christians --no debates or arguments, but Christian sharing. I will establish the format, so if I am not around to guide things, others can continue the format. Any ideas for change are welcome.
"We will leave the Old Testament (O.T.) to others to start, and concern our study with the N.T. since it speaks of Jesus Christ and the Church God established." ]
The Plan: 1) Each part of this study will be labeled (e.g. Matthew, Mark, etc; Book of Acts, Romans, etc.) until the next book or section is introduced in several weeks (giving enough time for comments).
2) Members should always be able to go back and post thoughts on the previous books (I hope that will work).
3) Members should feel free to join in according to this Plan, and should make any suggestions for major changes.
Epistle (letter) To The Roman Christians - Introduction:
This Epistle was written by the Apostle to the saints gathered at Rome in anticipation of Paul's proposed visit there. It is sixth in the chronological order of Paul’s Epistles.
The esteemed Bible teacher, C. I. Scofield (circa 1900 AD), says: "Romans is 'the gospel of God', the very widest possible designation of the whole body of redemption truth, for it is He with whom is 'no respect of persons'; and who is not 'the God of the Jews only'; but 'of the Gentiles also' (Rom.2:11; 3:29)". The hope of Israel is shown in Romans 11:25-27. Romans 5 speaks of the remedy for inherent sin. Much is said about "the righteousness of God" (e.g. Rom.1:17; Rom.3:21-26).
