Romans 1

Let Me Introduce Myself ...

The Reputation of Romans

Paul’s Thesis

I am not ashamed of the gospel, because it is the power of God that brings salvation to everyone who believes: first to the Jew, then to the Gentile. For in the gospel the righteousness of God is revealed—a righteousness that is by faith from first to last, just as it is written: "The righteous will live by faith." Romans 1:16-17

The Rejection of God

The Wrath of God

Everything that’s wrong with the Gentiles ...
... is also what’s wrong with you.

The turning point in Romans 2:1 –
“Them” language changes to “You” language

Go Back to the Thesis

  1. Paul is commissioned to be God’s agent
  2. Paul has a good message – news!
  3. It has the power to save – everyone!
