RECTOR'S BIBLE STUDY
Paul's Letter to the Romans
This letter is considered by most to be the “magnus opus” of the Pauline writings. It is the sixth book of the Christian canon and Paul’s longest letter. N. T. Wright considers it to be the “mountain peak” that all work towards understanding. While there is disagreement on particular sections, there is no disagreement that the texts reflect a significant understanding of the meaning of salvation through Jesus Christ. Rome was the center of the ancient world and if Paul can establish a foothold here among some of the earliest Christians – the faith could make it anywhere. Come and join the conversation, praye.rs and the opportunity for personal reflection. Paul will ask us to consider what is salvation?
