No other book has been as foundational to Christian faith as the book of Romans. Almost all of the key doctrines of salvation can be found in this book. Noted reformers like Martin Luther largely were convinced of the key truths of justification by faith and the innate sinfulness of man by studying the text of Romans. These studies changed their lives, the church, and the entire history of Christianity.
We believe they can change your life as well. Your faith and understanding of the Word will be challenged and built up as you study along with us chapter by chapter. You will see connections with other Scriptures made as Paul links together threads of truth which are strung through the whole Bible.
As amazingly in depth the doctrine is, Paul concludes the book with five chapters of application. Even Paul believed the purpose of studying was to obey! All of these profound truths will not make a difference in lives unless it is practiced and obeyed. So we hope that through these notes you can better understand the truths inside, and more importantly obey them.
If you feel that tackling Romans is too overwhelming, don’t despair! It is not only a book for scholars and seminary students. The notes here are designed for small group Bible studies of everyday believers. No extensive theological training is needed to understand the Bible. What is needed is only time and a willing heart!
