Overview: Paul dictated the book of Romans to Tertius (Romans 16:22) from Corinth in about 60 A.D.
He seems intent on helping Christians understand the implications of either believing that Jesus is Lord or in disbelieving that Jesus is the Christ. In other words, if you believe certain things will happen. If you don’t accept and believe, certain things will happen. Maybe if we had a better understanding of Romans, we would have more practical godliness in our lives and a better application of righteousness by faith. Maybe we would struggle less with being our own Savior and have a greater dependence on the Real Savior.
