Theme: Righteousness of God

Paul's epistle to the Christians at Rome, speaks of of Gods provision of Righteousness, based on faith in Jesus Christ, apart from works. In the first three chapters, God declares that all have sinned and come short of his glory; the unrighteous pagan, the self-righteous man, as well as the Jew who had Gods law.

Paul also states that God has not cast away his people Israel but that their rejection of Jesus as the Messiah, was opportunity for the Gentiles to be saved. As a whole, Israel will be saved when Jesus Christ returns, at the end of the tribulation period.
