The Gospel According To Paul. Righteousness of God and Unrighteousness of Humanity: On the doctrine of justification by Christ. The Salvation of God and the Result of Grace.


Jesus, Holy Spirit, Abraham, Paul, Phoebe, Romans.


1:16: I am not ashamed of the gospel, because it is the power of God for the Salvation of every one who believes, first for the Jew, then for the Gentile.

3:9-11: What shall we conclude then? Are we any better? Not at all! We have already made the charge that Jews and Gentiles alike are all under sin. As it is written: ‘There is no one righteous, not even one; there is no one who understands, no one who seeks God.

3:21: But now a righteousness from God apart from the Law, has been made known, to which the Law and Prophets testify.

5:8: But God demonstrates His own love for us in this: While we were still sinners, Christ died for us.

6:23: For the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord.

8:9: you however, are controlled not by the sinful nature, but by the Spirit, if the Spirit of God lives in you. And if anyone does not have the Spirit of Christ, he does not belong to Christ.

8:37-39: For I am convinced that neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither the present nor the future, nor any powers, neither height, nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord.

10:9-10: That if you confess with your mouth, ‘Jesus is Lord,’ and believe in your heart that God raised Him from the dead, you will be saved. For it is with your heart that you believe and are justified, and it is with your mouth that you confess and are saved.

12:1: Therefore, I urge you, brothers, in view of God’s mercy, to offer your bodies as living sacrifices, Holy and pleasing to God, this is your Spiritual act of worship.

12:19: Do not take revenge, my friends, but leave room for God’s wrath, for it is written: ‘It is mine to avenge; I will repay,’ says the Lord

15:13: May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace as you trust in Him, so that you may overflow with hope by the power of the Holy Spirit.

16:17: I urge you, brothers, to watch out for those who cause divisions and put obstacles in your way that are contrary to the teaching you have learned. Keep away from them.


New Testament places Romans as the first of 21 epistles or letters to the early churches or church leaders. There are 13-14 epistles written by Paul and 7 general epistles written by James, Peter, John and Jude. Romans is not the first letter by Paul but placed on top of others in NT because of its importance and strength of message. Paul definitely wrote it at the end of his third missionary journey, somewhere around 57 AD. Eight years before, Claudius had expelled Jews from Rome. Because of the lengthy and detailed personal information at the end of this letter, it is understandable that Paul was writing from the city of Corinth, about to leave for Jerusalem. Paul was instructed by the Lord Jesus Christ to be a minister to the Gentile people. Paul announces the Good News about Jesus Christ being the Son of God, with the Holy nature of God Himself. He begins the letter by showing how all men are sinners in the eyes of God and therefore worthy of death. However, Paul explains that Jesus Christ was the last
