Paul’s Concern for the Romans

Comment: Some view Paul’s Epistle to the Romans as the Gospel of Paul. The great purpose of the epistle is to answer the solemn question: ‘But how can a man be righteous before God?’ (Job 9:2) Therefore, the epistle develops the message of the gospel, the good news of grace and its practical results for sinful man.

ESV Study Bible:

The theme of Romans is the revelation of God’s judging and saving righteousness in the gospel of Jesus Christ. In the cross of Christ, God judges sin and yet at the same time manifests his saving mercy.
