Romans is one of the greatest resources available to the Christian faith and life. Written in the mid-to late AD 50s to the congregation in Rome, Paul sent this pastoral letter to make clear the gospel, that salvation is from the Lord, that it is and has always been by his free favor alone (sola gratia), through faith alone (sola fide), in Christ alone. Jesus the Servant of God is the Savior promised to Adam and Eve, to Noah, to Abraham, to Moses, to David, and to the prophets. To make clear the centrality of Christ and the good news—the power of God for salvation of the ungodly—he lays out the greatness of our sin and misery (1:18–3:20), how we are redeemed from our sins and misery by the grace of God in Christ (3:21–11:36); and how we ought to live thankfully for such a redemption (12:1–16:27). In this episode, Chris and I look at the end of Romans 1 and the first part of Romans 2.

The Roman series feedback: It is very helpful. It would be even more useful if you identified the verses you plan to present in each session. Example: Session 8 Romans 1:18 – 2:11.
Also in Session 8, Romans 2:6-8 seems to refer back to the promise in Romans 1: 1-8. If this connection is correct then it would help us, your listeners, for you to identify connections like these in your presentation. Also please clarify the distinctions between Christ’s Righteous work on our behalf and our ‘obedience of faith’ in the verses mentioned above.
