Being the Church

Bible Study on Paul's letter to the Romans

Paul's Letter to the Romans

New Testament

Our Bible comprises two sections: the Old Testament and the New Testament. The Old Testament, being the scriptures of the Hebrew tradition form the basis and foundation for both Jesus' ministry and Paul's writings.


Paul's writings are the earliest literature in the New Testament -- here, we hear the newest, freshest voice of the Christian movement in its infancy.


In his letter to the Romans, Paul speaks to a felgeling community of new Christians, finding their way to be the Church in the midst of the culture of the Roman Empire. This turns out to be a context that is ripe with parallels to life in our 21st century context.


What is this new kind of faith? And how can we support one another to live in faith community?
