This Pros Romaious class is a verse-by-verse study, using Paul’s question and answer format for systematic doctrine, but with an emphasis on its significance for practical exhortation toward Christian living. The Book of Romans stands at the top of the list when approaching doctrinal and practical content. There is no other work produced by the ancient world that puts forth such a marvelous example of epistolary form of writing. In a sense, it is considered the “Mt. Everest” of the New Testament due to its lofty theological message(s) of justification, sanctification, redemption, the righteousness of God, and victory over sin.
