Romans

 

Martin Luther wrote,

“This letter is truly the most important piece in the New Testament. It is purest Gospel. It is well worth a Christian’s while not only to memorize it word for word but also to occupy himself with it daily, as though it were the daily bread of the soul. It is impossible to read or to meditate on this letter too much or too well. The more one deals with it, the more precious it becomes and the better it tastes.”

The desired end for this study is that the gospel, God’s revealed righteousness will grow in its preciousness to His people and that it will be nourishment for their souls.
