This is the opening podcast in the series Romans A-Z. In 26 daily lessons, we will explore Paul's longest letter.

First, we set the stage, by reading through chapter 1, verse 1-15 (24 minutes). Paul has a missionary purpose in visiting Rome (1:12; 15:23-25,28) as well as a theological purpose (preventing the debate about Torah from making its way to Rome and potentially splitting the Christian movement).

Suggested for memory: "... that we may be mutually encouraged by each other's faith..." (1:12).
