Taking the Epistle

A biblical journey through the epistles

01 – Romans



Welcome to our page on Romans where we look at the letter written by the Apostle Paul to the church in Rome, this letter is unique in that Paul is writing to a church that he did not either plant or had a hand in planting. The letter was written by Paul while he was in Corinth between 53-58 AD, at this point Paul had been in Christian ministry for between 20-25 years. (As well as many years prior as a Pharisee known as Saul of Tarsus)

We as 21st century Christians are very blessed to have a letter packed with doctrine, packed with love and packed with exhortation from a man with such a wealth of knowledge who leads by example. Paul after his conversion on the road to Damascus began serving in the local church; he then lived his life on mission, using every opportunity that God gave him to introduce people to the gospel of Jesus Christ.

The letter is in many parts:
Greetings and introductions 1:1-15
Salvation in Christ 1:16-8:39
Faithfulness of God to Israel 9:1-11:36
Transformation of believers 12:1-15:13
Epilogue and closing salutations 15:1-16:23

When the writers of the bible separated the books into chapters and verses to help indexing and finding verses, this book was split into 16 chapters, in many cases new chapters do not contain new thoughts and you will see bible studies cross over chapter lines.

Below is a list of bible studies in the book of Romans.
