Romans is a deep, thorough presentation of the gospel. In this letter, Paul explains the idea of salvation by faith to both Jews and Gentiles. Paul uses the Jews beloved Abraham to show that God credited righteousness apart from works. He explains the purpose of the law, he explains their new ‘sonship,’ and he gives them examples of how to live apart from the law which is in love and Christ-likeness. Paul also explains that God’s plan for Israel is not yet finished and that one day God would finish His work in and through Israel.
