The Gospel and Salvation - Just What’s Going on Here?
Romans 1:16-17

Questions:
- What does Paul mean the he says he says he is “not ashamed of the gospel”?
- How is the gospel “the power of God that brings salvation”?
- What is it that the gospel saves us from?
- What is this “righteousness of God” and how is it “revealed”?
- How is it that the “ righteous will live by faith”?

Answers:
- We all need God’s righteousness because we are all sinners (1:18-3:20)
- Faith alone in Jesus is how God will justify us — that is, declare us righteous (3:21-4:25)
- When we obtain God’s righteousness, we experience several results: God reconciles us to himself (5:1-21), he liberates us from sin’s dominating power (6:1-23), he frees us from the law (7:1-25), and he gives us assurance and security (8:1-39).
- The relationship between the gospel and Israel calls the reliability into question, so Paul vindicates God’s righteousness (9:1-11:36).
- The gospel transforms how we live and produces righteous living (12:1-15:13).
