This video offers a visual introduction to Paul’s letter to the Romans, specifically looking at Romans 1:1-17.
Paul writes to the church in Rome, who is divided between the Jews and the Gentiles, and says,
“I am not ashamed of the Gospel, for it is the power of God for salvation, first to the Jews, and also to the Gentiles.”
What does he mean by the “power of salvation.”
Saved from what?
You might be surprised by the answer.
The visual commentary below highlights the heart of the message and the Good News for today.
“for I am not ashamed of the Gospel; it is the power of God for salvation to everyone who has faith, to the Jew first and also to the Greek.Many people in Paul’s day thought that the only people “inside” of God’s Promise were those who followed the particular rules of the Law of Moses. Paul was trying to break open their imagination to see that God’s promise is actually for ALL people. CLICK HERE for a deeper dive into Paul’s argument for including all people in God’s promise.
