This commentary on Paul’s letter to the Romans summarizes and completes Ernst Kasemann’s lifelong study of Paul’s theology and of this epistle in particular. As is common in his writings, Kasemann in this commentary has gone his own, frequently provocative way. He has emphasized theological rather than historical questions; as a result, this commentary divides Romans into sections according to what Kasemann sees as the key theological concept of the letter – the righteousness of God. That Kasemann has, however, considered seriously the historical as well as theological questions in the extensive literature on Romans is evident in the numerous references in the text and in the bibliographies provided for the major and minor subdivisions of the sections.
This commentary has been translated from the German by Geoffrey W. Bromiley, who has translated, among other works, Kittel’s Theological Dictionary of the New Testament. Long paragraphs in the original have been divided to provide easier reading, and the references have been converted to English- translation equivalents wherever possible. In addition, this translation incorporates changes that Kasemann made in the German original for the 4th edition.
