Hi all, here is this week’s reading plan with day one being today, Friday, October 15.
|This week we finish Acts and dive into Romans!|
|Hey reading community,
With Paul leading the missionary charge, the fledgling Jesus movement exploded onto the world stage and swept across the Roman empire. The people of this movement were both Jew and Gentile (non-Jews), and this level of interaction between Jews and Gentiles was unprecedented in history. This led to a substantial amount of division within the early Church, and it prompted Paul to spend a great deal of time on the topic of unity, including in the book of Romans.
Paul’s letter to the Romans is his greatest work. It offers the fullest explanation of Jesus’s life, death, and resurrection. Its level of sophistication and insight into the Gospel is unmatched in any of his other letters. This makes sense when you consider it was written over 20 years after he was converted on the road to Damascus. He had a long time to reflect!
