Jesus in the NT :: Romans


The book of Romans gives us a glimpse of who Jesus is in the  New Testament (N.T)

The first of the 13 epistles (letters) written by Paul, the book of Romans is more than just a book of theology. While the one word summation of this book’s central theme is SACRIFICE, the two word expression of the contents of this book is DEATH and LIFE.

The entire book of Romans can be summed up as the answer to one question which is stated in Romans 7:24 as follows: O wretched man that I am! who shall deliver me from the body of this death?The answer: Jesus Christ;  Romans 7:25 reads “I thank God through Jesus Christ our Lord. So then with the mind I myself serve the law of God; but with the flesh the law of sin.

The Spirit is willing, but the flesh is weak and at loggerheads (at war) against the Spirit. The wages of sin is death (Romans 6:23) and all have sinned and have fallen short of the glory of God (Romans 3:23). But the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord (Romans 6:23)

In Romans, Jesus is the deliverer from death unto life; life abundant; life eternal.
