Who Wrote The Book Of Romans

Tuesday 10th March 2019 Devotion

Scripture:- Romans 15

Topic:- Who Wrote The Book Of Romans

Text:- Romans 8:28

All critical schools agree on the Pauline authorship of this foundational book. The vocabulary, style, logic, and theological development are consistent with Paul’s other Epistles. Paul dictated this letter to a secretary named Tertius who was allowed to add his own greeting. See Romans 16:22.
The problem arises not with the authorship but with the disunity of the Epistle. Some Latin (but no Greek) manuscripts omit Romans 15:1-16:24, and the closing doxology, Romans 16:25-27 is placed at the end of chapter 14 in some manuscripts.

These variations have led some scholars to conclude that the last two chapters were not originally part of the Epistle or that Paul issued it in two editions.
However, most scholars believe that chapter 15 fits in logically with the rest of the Epistle. There is more debate over chapter 16, because Paul greets by name twenty-six persons in a Church he has never visited.
Some Scholars contend that it was a separate letter, perhaps written to Ephesus, that was appended to this Epistle.
Such a letter would be surprising, to say the least (nothing but greetings), especially in the ancient world. It is simpler to understand the list of greetings as Paul’s effort as a stranger to the Roman Church to list his mutual friends.
Paul met these people in the cities of his missionary journeys. Significantly, the only other Pauline Epistle that lists individual greetings was addressed to the believers at Colosse, another Church Paul had never visited.
It may be that this portion was omitted from some copies of Romans because it did not seem relevant. AND WE KNOW THAT ALL THINGS WORK TOGETHER FOR GOOD TO THOSE WHO LOVE GOD, TO THOSE WHO ARE THE CALLED ACCORDING TO HIS PURPOSE. – ROMANS 8:28.

Prayer Point:- Oh Lord God, make me a tool in Your hand for Your use henceforth by fire, in the name of Jesus Christ.

Have A Wonderful Tuesday!

ALTAR CALL

If you want to give your life to Christ; you want your sins forgiven; you want to become a child of God; you want to experience the realities of new birth; you want to make heaven;

Or you were once saved and fell along the line, and now you want to rededicate your life to Christ…

Then pray this short prayer of Faith

Say it loud and mean it:

“Lord Jesus, I surrender my life to you today. Forgive me my sins, wash me with your blood. I believe you died for me, on the third day you rose again that I may be justified. Right now, I believe that my sins are forgiven; I’m justified by your blood; I’m born-again; I’m saved; I’m a child of God; I’m free from the power of sin to serve the living God. Thank you Jesus for receiving me; thank you Jesus for restoring me; thank you Jesus for saving me.

Thank God for your soul. I congratulate you for the best decision of your life. For further details on how to grow in this new light, please click the CONTACT page or visit TACN or any bible believing church near you and ask for the pastor in charge.
