The book of Romans was written by Paul to the Corinth, Paul's letter was written to the church to inform then that he is going to visit them. He wanted to visit Rome to meet new Christians to encourage them and to be encouraged by them.He had finished ministering in the East and he was moving to the West to share the Gospel. Paul announced the judgement of God according to truth explaining that the judgement is by law and that circumcision alone avails nothing. He also explains that all have sinned there is no one righteous,but instead the righteousness of God comes through Christs sacrifice. Paul stops to recall the privileges Israel enjoyed but how through disobedience she missed the fulfillment of the the promises and the Lord turned to the gentiles for the present time. But Paul affirms that there is a glorious future for the covenant promises. The rest of the book lays out the application of our new covenant relationship through Christ.
