Romans Sermon Series

Morning Services 16 June – 29 September 2019

Paul’s letter to the Romans is the longest letter we have in the Bible. Actually, it’s by far the longest letter we have from the ancient world from any writer.

Some see Romans as the nearest Paul got to writing a complete systematic theology. It is, say some, his mature theological summary, his majestic magnum opus.

But it is, in fact, a pastoral letter designed to address a practical issue in a unique church for a particular reason as we shall see in this series.

It would take a couple of years to do Romans justice and we could easily lose ourselves for months on end unravelling and getting to grips with Paul’s tightly-packed thinking. When Peter says “Paul’s letters contain some things that are hard to understand” (2 Peter 3.16) he was no doubt thinking of this epistle!

Instead of covering the entire book verse-by-verse, we are going to cover chapters 1-11 in just two weeks, to get a feel for the overall flow of the more doctrinal part of the letter, and then dig down into the more practical section in chapters 12-16 over 13 weeks.
