Rose Publishing has produced a PowerPoint presentation on the Book of Romans. The PowerPoint contains a menu for ease of navigating the different topics. It provides historical information including classifying the challenges within the culture and environment during that era. The background of Apostle Paul, the writer of the epistle, is explored including his conversion to Christianity. Additionally, there are maps to trace the Apostle Paul’s journeys as he traveled to preach the Gospel. Furthermore, this presentation includes discussion questions, worksheets, and handouts.
The Apostle Paul had a three-fold purpose for writing this epistle: missionary, pastoral, and atonement. Throughout the Book of Romans, Paul wrote the epistle using colloquialisms that the audience in Rome would be familiar with such as slavery. Subsequently, the themes of this epistle addressed redemption/ransom, atonement, and justification using slavery colloquialisms would be ideal since many of the citizens were enslaved. Paul endeavored to promote the message that salvations was available to both the Jews and Gentiles (non-Jews). It also explores God’s righteousness, God’s right to judge and save, along with the power of the Gospel.
I thoroughly enjoyed this PowerPoint presentation. It is the perfect teaching tool for leaders to use in Bible Study or Sunday School. It covers the Book of Romans very well and highlights themes in a functional and fundamental manner. I would definitely recommend this to spiritual leaders or lay persons interested in studying the Book of Romans.
