The Argument of Paul to the Romans
For searchers of discussions on the New Perspective of Paul (NPP), this article won't address NPP. This article does address a non-traditional view of the contextual progression of Romans. Due to the newness of the presentation, much care must be used to test the content herein carefully with respect to scripture. Some ideas written in this article are interesting thoughts and a bit speculative. Most ideas and scripture references are germane to the presenting the understanding of Paul's argument.
Paul's writing to the Romans has well been recognized for the excellent handling of Old Testament scriptures seen through the knowledge and revelation of Christ Jesus. Now his writing ought to be seen in the masterful debate skills utilized to reach to a distant hostile group of believers.
The artful technique of Paul receives strong consideration now in order to show the purpose of the writing. [Though the purpose is addressed in a different article.] God's preparation of a man to this purpose ought to give glory to God. Thereafter, the attention should be focused back to the glorious message of Christ Jesus in the gospel.
