Romans: Suffering and Justice

Semester 2
Night Class

This unit explores Paul’s letter to the Roman house churches in the context of mid-first century life in the Imperial Capital. It focuses on Paul’s theology of suffering and how his rhetoric addresses the situation of the urban population of Rome, generating hope for those from many nations enslaved in the service of the powerful. The Gospel of the righteousness (justice) of God revealed through Jesus Christ for Jews and Gentiles will be read and interpreted in the context of recent reconstructions of life in Imperial Rome.
