Back in 2012 our small assembly started studying Romans verse by verse. This month we finally finished after taking detours in Obadiah and Malachi.
You can find all 433 verses in detail on our Romans page.

Not every question is answered in the summary, because the intent is to provide a general overview of the book.
I have encouraged many of you to start your Bible studies in your home or with friends in Romans going through 1 chapter per week. Hopefully, an outline as presented in our Romans summary will give you some help in this regard.
If you don’t have your own mid-Acts Bible study group, then read through Romans on your own and draw out your own outline. Particularly spend time in Romans 1-8 until you have the gospel memorized clearly.
There is no greater starting point for the believer today. Martin Luther said of Romans:
“It is the true masterpiece of the New Testament, and the very purest Gospel, which is well worth and deserving that a Christian man should not only learn it by heart, word for word, but also that he should daily deal with it as the daily bread of men’s souls.”
For His glory,
