Lesson Outline I. God Provided Salvation

Romans has been called the “The Constitution of Christianity”, “The Cathedral of Christian Faith. It is noteworthy for being the complete compendium of Christian doctrine. The Epistle of Romans was written between A.D. 56 and 58 from Corinth during Paul’s third missionary journey. The church at Rome was most likely founded by converts of Peter’s ministry at Pentecost or Paul’s ministry. The church was primarily made up of Gentiles and had a very little central organization or local government. Small groups of believers met all over the city this is the reason that the Epistle is not addressed to the “church” at Roman but to the “saints”. Apostle Paul had three objectives in writing this Epistle (1) to teach the the fundamental doctrine of salvation in order to fortify them against the Judaizer (2) to explain the unbelief of Israel and vindicate the faithfulness of God in His dealings with Israel and (3) to give practical instructions concerning Christian living in the society of his day.

Discovery

John 20:1 – The first day of the week cometh Mary Magdalene early, when it was yet dark, unto the sepulchre, seeth the stone taken away from the sepulcher. In this scripture, John omitted several details such as the earthquake, the angel rolling the stone away and sitting on it. The two angels speaking to the women or the fact that there were other women besides Mary who went to the sepulcher. Mary Magdalene is the woman out of whom Jesus cast out seven devils and Mary the mother of James and Joses who was the wife of Cleophas (In the end of the sabbath, as it began to dawn toward the first day of the week, came Mary Magdalene and the other Mary to see the sepulcher – Matthew 28:1). ( And when the sabbath was past, Mary Magdalene, and Mary the mother of James, and Salome, had bought sweet spices that might come and anoint him Mark 16:1). (Now upon the first day of the week, very early in the morning, they came unto the sepulcher, bringing the spices which they had prepared, and certain others with them – Luke 24:1).  Read More
