This verse-by-verse exegetical commentary on the Greek text of Romans chapters 1-8 demonstrates that Paul’s letter to the Romans deals with three basic truths of Christian faith — sin, acquittal, and thankful Christain living. The commentary begins with a brief discussion of the author, date, place, recipients, occasion and purpose of the book of Romans. Author David Kuske then shows how Paul addresses the failure of both Gentiles and Jews to live perfect lives as God’s law requires. Then, after presenting the purest gospel in the next chapters, Paul follows in chapters 6-8 with one of Scripture’s clearest presentations of Christian life and sanctification so that the faith of Christians in Rome could be strengthened, helping the spread of the gospel to the west.
Christians have long treasured Romans for its clear and pure presentation of God’s grace to sinners. The commentary contains 27 charts and 57 of what the authors calls schemas — diagrams of the Greek sentences in Paul’s letter. Includes a Works Cited with Abbreviations page.
