STUDIES IN THE BOOK OF ROMANS COURSE SYLLABUS
A chapter-by-chapter analysis of Paulís
argument in the book of Romans with special emphasis on Paulís view of
humanity, salvation, Christ, and the Holy Spirit
Trinity College of Biblical Studies-Free Online
The Apostle Paulís letter to the church at Rome is one
of the most important books in the Bible. It has captured the
imagination of Christian and non-Christian thinkers throughout history.
The powerful concepts contained within it propel Romans forwards as
classical literature ahead of its time in many official areas of
theological, psychological, social, ethical, and of course,
ecclesiastical reflection. This greatest of Paulís epistles could very
likely be viewed as the most polished and clearest expression of who God
is and what He has done for us through Jesus Christ. This course will
focus on the text of Romans with a view toward providing an in-depth
understanding of its primary themes.
