Fall Back to the Beginning: Romans and The Reformation Bible Study

Of the 66 documents that constitute the biblical canon, few are as weighty as Paul's letter to the Romans. It may rightly be regarded as his magnum opus. In it Paul sets forth the essence of the Christian "good news"-the gospel of Jesus Christ. Luther's wrestling with the book of Romans launched the Protestant Reformation in 1517. Its status and significance in Christian history and among the books of the Bible are our reason for studying this letter as we mark the 500th birthday of the Reformation.

This weekly study is held in Room 178.

Fall Back to the Beginning: Romans and The Reformation Bible Study

Of the 66 documents that constitute the biblical canon, few are as weighty as Paul's letter to the Romans. It may rightly be regarded as his magnum opus. In it Paul sets forth the essence of the Christian "good news"-the gospel of Jesus Christ. Luther's wrestling with the book of Romans launched the Protestant Reformation in 1517. Its status and significance in Christian history and among the books of the Bible are our reason for studying this letter as we mark the 500th birthday of the Reformation.

This weekly study is held in Room 178.
