Romans 1:16,17

New World Translation of the Holy Scriptures: For I am not ashamed of the good news; it is, in fact, God’s power for salvation to everyone having faith, to the Jew first and also to the Greek; for in it God’s righteousness is being revealed by reason of faith and toward faith, just as it is written: “But the righteous one—by means of faith he will live.”

Romans 1:20,21

New World Translation of the Holy Scriptures: For his invisible [qualities] are clearly seen from the world’s creation onward, because they are perceived by the things made, even his eternal power and Godship, so that they are inexcusable; because, although they knew God, they did not glorify him as God nor did they thank him, but they became empty-headed in their reasonings and their unintelligent heart became darkened.

Romans 3:1

New World Translation of the Holy Scriptures: What, then, is the superiority of the Jew, or what is the benefit of the circumcision?

Romans 15:1

New World Translation of the Holy Scriptures: We, though, who are strong ought to bear the weaknesses of those not strong, and not to be pleasing ourselves.

Romans 16:17

New World Translation of the Holy Scriptures: Now I exhort YOU, brothers, to keep your eye on those who cause divisions and occasions for stumbling contrary to the teaching that YOU have learned, and avoid them.

Romans was a letter written to the people of Rome by Paul

Introduction

There are a number of ideas held by biblical scholars concerning the reasons why Paul wrote his epistle to the Romans. The debate about these differing theories is one of the longest and most complex within modern day biblical scholarship. Much interpretation of Romans throughout Christian history advanced on the assumption that it was simply a theological writing; however, it is now thought that Paul had no theological interest of this sort and the letter served a much different purpose. A few substantive answers have been developed which relate to the context of the situation in the Roman churches at the time, Paul's mission work, and the actual contents of the epistle itself.

Dating

The letter holds some hints into working out a plausible timeframe of when it might have been composed by correlating it against some external evidence found in Acts. Paul wrote his letter just before a journey to Jerusalem, where he was intending to take charity money collected from Gentile Christians to give to the poorer Christians in Judea (Rom 15:25-27. In Acts 19:21 Luke explains how Paul planned to go to Jerusalem, and also to Rome. Acts 20 gives a detailed account of Paul's travels and placement around this time. Based on what Paul says in Romans, and what Acts records about Paul's movements, scholars have estimated that the letter would have been written around the winter of 56 or 57 AD. This was a later point in Paul's ministry, probably making the charity undertaking his third journey to Jerusalem.
