Romans means the inhabitants of Ancient Rome
Paul's theme is God's plan of salvation for the Jew and Gentile alike, justification by faith is righteousness from God. Paul does not change God's principles. His letter is a careful and deep systematic theological introduction for his personal ministry. Doctrinal themes are sin, salvation, grace, faith, righteousness, justification, reconciliation, sanctification, redemption, death, resurrection, and humankind's glorification. The work is an exploration of Christ's sacrificial death, the significance of Old Testament quotations, the teaching of the Believer's position in Christ is followed by particular exhortation. The Book of Romans is the longest of all the New Testament letters. The Book of Romans has been one of the most highly valued books of The Bible, it is one of thirteen letters of the New Testament written by Paul The Apostle to the Gentile Churches. Greetings are mentioned to nine women, all of whom were fellow Christian ministry workers of whom, one is an apostle, another a deaconess and another a teacher.

Righteousness from God
Unrighteousness of mankind
Sanctification for Humankind
Application of God's Righteousness
" FOR GOD SENT CHRIST JESUS TO TAKE THE PUNISHMENT FOR OUR SINS AND TO END ALL GOD'S ANGER AGAINST US. HE USED CHRIST'S BLOOD AND OUR FAITH AS THE MEANS OF SAVING US FROM HIS WRATH, HIS DEMONSTRATION OF HIS JUSTICE "
On account of sin, people are alienated from God and cut off from fellowship with Him. True reconciliation can only come through Christ. The sins of the people of God's creation are totally forgiven by the once and for all sacrifice of Christ Jesus, God's Son, on The Cross at Calvary. This was God's plan to accept people who trusted in Christ, as completely righteous, (made right with Him) by the atoning of The Blood of Christ. A person, who is reconciled to God, through Christ, is one who believes and knows who Christ is, and what He has done for them. He is The Son of God, The Only Redeemer and Saviour. Jesus' death upon the Cross and His Resurrection redeems believers from all forms of sinful bondage. His own death represents the ransom that secured the freedom from those held in captivity. Jesus also redeems from the slavery of The Law, the Curse of The Law, from empty religion, from the power of the evil one, from the coming judgement and from spiritual death. No other person can make humankind right with God. This is a legal declaration when a person puts their trust in Christ and makes a covenant relationship with Him, being reconciled to God, and because of Christ's death and resurrection a believer has Eternal Life, to live with God forever. God's salvation is supremely accomplished through The Cross. Humankind is offered salvation that will give them spiritual life and eternal life.
CHRIST SEEN IN THE BOOK OF ROMANS
Jesus is The Righteousness of God. His Sacrificial death provided justification for those who trust in who He is. He is both Judge and Saviour.
