Bible Project: How to Read Book of Romans in Historical Context
The abstract art in the new Bible Project video makes for a compelling journey as Tim Mackie explains how to read the New Testament letters in historical context. He focuses a lot on the book of Romans, largely assumed to have been written by the apostle Paul.
"In Roman life, it was unheard of for people of high status to associate with people below them, but the apostle said that through Jesus, God had given the gift of His love to everyone, without regard to their status," Mackie narrates. "In these letters, we see the apostles challenging and transforming every part of their first-century culture and life with the Good News about King Jesus, and by watching them, we gain wisdom about how that same Good News can transform our culture as well."
