Questions about the Book of Romans

The book of Romans is the sixth book of the New Testament. The epistle to the Romans was written from Corinth during the Apostle Paul’s third visit to that city. The theme of this Epistle is “the gospel of God.” It relates to the whole world that “there is no respect of persons” with Him who is “the God of the Jews” and “of the Gentiles also.” Romans, states the divine provision of God’s Grace whereby He is able to declare sinners as righteous through the atoning work of His righteous Son Jesus Christ. This book of Romans can be divided into five parts: 1) The whole world is guilty before God. 2) Justification by faith in Christ. 3) Sanctification through union with Christ in His Death and Resurrection. 4) The problem of Jewish unbelief. 5) Christian life and service for the glory of God, and the outflow of Christian Love.
