Chapter 1

Points to Remember

v. 1-7 Paul begins the book of Romans with a classic introduction. He identified himself, his recipients, and then a brief salutation.

v. 8-10 Paul makes it very clear that he was a dedicated servant of Jesus Christ, whose divinity as the Son of God is beyond question. Paul considered himself an apostle, sent to the Gentiles

v. 11-16 Paul had not yet visited the church at Rome, but longed to do so.

v. 17 is a familiar doctrinal statement: “The just shall live by faith.”

v. 18-20 Men are without excuse for not knowing God.

v.21-32 Paul shows the downward spiral of sin. First rejecting God, pleasing self, growing to hate God and joined others who practiced the same sins. God gives them over to their depraved minds and permits them to experience the natural consequences of their sin.
