I started a new study of Romans about two-and-a-half weeks ago. I’m not going fast because I’m taking it down to the bare metal and my Greek is a little rusty.
I am impressed by Paul’s desire to proclaim the gospel of Jesus to everyone, whether they are cultured or not, whether they are receptive or not, whatever their ethnicity.
At the same time, he knew the necessity of contextualization for the specific receivers of the message.
It is no surprise to realize that we could learn a lot from Paul.
