Congratulations for persevering with the Book of Daniel – I hope, despite the length of some of the passages, you’ve found it rewarding.
We now turn to something rather different. The Epistle to the Romans is the longest of Paul’s letters and, in summary, was written to explain that salvation is offered to humanity through Jesus. Much of the letter is a complex argument, aimed at Jewish converts to Christianity who were brought up to see themselves as morally superior to licentious gentiles. Paul turns the tables on them showing that both Jew and Gentile needed to have faith in Christ. The letter also has lots of practical instructions around Christian living.
Over the next few weeks we work through this Epistle together and I hope you find it rewarding.
with every good wish
