Romans-Ephesians: The Letter to the Roman Church and Letters From a Roman Prison


Rome was the capital of the world. Although Paul hadn’t yet visited there when he wrote his epistle to the Christians at Rome, he wanted to make certain they were clear on what the Gospel really was. In the Roman epistle, we have Paul’s great theological statement on God’s salvation. Later, Paul was imprisoned in Rome while waiting for his trial before Caesar. While there, he wrote four letters. In this course, Romans-Ephesians: The Letter to the Roman Church and Letters from a Roman Prison, we study the letters Paul wrote both to and from Rome.

  • I appreciated the ability to retake the quizzes and learn the information better in that way. I would have enjoyed being able to have the option to listen to every document rather than just the lectures, but I appreciated being able to have the transcripts and listening guides available. Thank you!

    — Nicholas, United States (US)
  • I really enjoyed this course, especially the readings and the archaeological discoveries. Understanding biblical culture is critical to understanding the Scriptures. This study opened my eyes to the world that existed in Jesus' day, and the evidence found in the centuries that followed support the biblical record. Most importantly, the course demonstrates that God's people must faithfully believe that the evidence of what He has done, is doing, and will do has been, is being, and will be revealed in God's time, not ours.

    — Deborah, United States (US)
  • This has been very exciting. The course was not what I thought it would be and I appreciate the way in which it was delivered, challenging and yet simple enough for anyone who wants to walk in Christ's footsteps. I want to know more.
