The sins of the Gentiles (1:21-32)


Chapter 2

Those who sin cannot excuse themselves, or escape the judgment of God (2:1-8)
Whether they be Jews or Gentiles (2:9-24)
Circumcision will not profit the Jews if they do not keep the law (2:25-29)


Chapter 3

Their prior rights (3:1)
Which they have not lost (3:3)
There is none righteous (3:9-20)
No one is justified by the law (3:21-27)
But all, without exception, by faith alone (3:28-30)
Yet the law is not abolished (3:31)


Chapter 4

Abraham's faith was credited to him for righteousness (4:1-9)
Before he was circumcised (4:10-12)

Abraham is the father of all who believe (4:16-23)
Our faith shall also be credited to us for righteousness (4:24-25)


Chapter 5

Being justified by faith, we have peace with God (5:1)
And joy in our hope (5:2-7)
That, since we were reconciled by His blood, when we were enemies (5:8-9)
We shall the more readily be saved after reconciliation (5:10-11)
As sin and death came by Adam (5:12-16)
So much more are righteousness and life brought by Jesus Christ (5:17-21)


Chapter 6

We must not live in sin (6:1)
For we are dead to it (6:2)
And we are buried with him by baptism (6:3-11)
Let sin reign no more (6:12-17)
Because we have given ourselves completely to righteous service (6:18-22)
And because death is the wages of sin (6:23)


Chapter 7

No law has power over a man after his death (7:1-3)
We are dead to the law (7:4-6)
Yet the law is not sin (7:7-10)
The law Holy, just, and good (7:11-15)
Paul acknowledges, and is grieved because he cannot keep the law (7:16-25)


Chapter 8

They that are in Christ, and live according to the Spirit, are free from condemnation (8:1-4)

Paul's prayer is for Israel's salvation (10:1-4)
The Scripture shows the difference between the righteousness of the law and that of faith (10:5-10)
And that neither Jew nor Gentile who believes will be destroyed (10:11-17)
And that the Gentiles shall receive the word and believe (10:18)
Israel was not ignorant of these things (10:19-21)


Chapter 11

God has not cast off all Israel, but has saved a remnant (11:1-4)
Some are chosen according to God's grace (11:5-10)
The purpose of Israel's rejection (11:11-15)
There is hope of the Jews' conversion (11:16-17)
The Gentiles should not become proud (11:18-25)
For there is a promise of the Jews' salvation (11:26-32)
God's judgments are unsearchable (11:33-36)


Chapter 12

But should pay attention to the calling for which we are best equipped (12:6-8)
Love and other virtues (12:9-18)
Overcome evil with good (12:19-21)

Responsibilites toward higher powers (13:1-7)
Responsibilites toward neighbours (13:8-11)
Gluttony, drunkenness, and works of darkness are not in keeping with the gospel (13:12-14)


Chapter 14

The brother weak in the faith (14:1-2)
Men may not condemn one another for things on which they do not agree (14:3-12)
But should see that they give no offense by them (14:13-14)
The apostle proves such conduct unlawful for many reasons (14:15-23)


Chapter 15

The strong must bear with the weak (15:1)
We should not seek to please ourselves (15:2)
For even Christ did not do so (15:3-6)
But we should receive one another, as Christ received us all (15:7)

And the Gentiles (15:9-13)
Paul's reasons for writing this letter (15:14-24)
