The Death dealing sin, the life giving life
Romans 5 v 12 -20
The Romans Epistle:
From: Paul the apostle: an intellectual Jew with Roman citizenship. Miraculous conversion on his trip to Damascus.
To: Christians in Rome….mainly Gentile (non Jews) but with Jewish Christians amongst them.
When: Around 57 A.D. Nero was the Roman Emperor.
Why: Paul wanted to visit the Roman church. He had never been. He wanted them to know what he believed before he met them.
What? A most powerful summary of Christian beliefs. How all people have sinned and how God sent Jesus to pay for those sins and make a way for them to be reconciled (made right) with God.
