NT epistle (letter)


This is a systematic letter of Paul. He wrote it in preparation for a visit to Rome, and a church he had not founded, to set out his understanding of the gospel about Jesus. Here he expounds the key doctrine of justification by faith. Also important is his theodicy i.e. his justification of God in light of the apparent failure of the Jews to accept Christ (Chs 9-11).
