The Romans

Romans 1:7-12 The city of Rome, the "Eternal City," was the center of the Roman world, a cosmopolitan city which ignited the imagination of people throughout the empire. It was to this city with its vast and diverse population that Paul wrote this epistle. Yet he wrote to a small and very select group within this remarkable metropolis. How did Paul identify those to whom he wrote? What does it mean to be a saint? How did Paul begin in addressing these people? What was the fame of these to whom he wrote? What was Paul's longing regarding these Romans? What did he wish to impart to them, and why? What did Paul hope to receive in return? Did he ever receive this? Do you ever feel like you are "in Rome?" (55 min)
