Week 1

Read:

  • Information regarding The Letter From Paul to the Romans (in the ICSB pages 13-14) and any additional sources you wish to utilize (i.e. bible, online, etc.)
  • Introduction (Romans 1:1-17)
  • Humanity without Christ – Part 1 (Romans 1:18-2:29)

Information:

  • It is clear that Saint Paul wrote “Romans.”  Looking at verse 1:1, he introduces himself, the writer of the letter.
  • Theme: Righteousness of God (see verse 1:17).

Questions:

  • What verse(s) stood out to you and why?
  • Do you see God’s grandeur in nature?  If so, give examples. (see Romans 1:18-20)
  • How do people in our society today go against nature?  In what ways are they knowingly hurting their relationship with God? (see Romans 1:18-32)
  • Do you, or do all of us as a society, approve of others’ sins?  Even if we do not commit a particular sin ourselves, how are we to blame if we approve of the sin of others? (see Romans 1:32)
  • “Do you not know that God’s kindness is meant to lead you to repentance?” (Romans 2:4).  How earnest are you in repenting?  How important is repentance? (see Romans 2:1-14).
  • We all will be judged by God.  To be saved, we must live our lives according to God’s will.  We must practice what Jesus Christ preached (see Romans 2:12-13). How well do you live your life?
  • To whom do you seek praise, others or God? (see Romans 2:29)
  • Additional Questions found in your study guide or in the Ignatius Catholic Study Bible – The Letter of Saint Paul to the Romans (page 43).
