* SequelHook: Towards the end of the book, Paul announces his intention to visit Rome before going to Spain. However, the sequel was apparently never written. Luke makes no mention of a trip to Spain in the [[ActsOfTheApostles Book of Acts]], and [[AuthorExistenceFailure Paul appears not to have made it out of Rome alive]] after a subsequent visit there. Most scholars agree he never went to Spain. If he did, either [[LostForever he never wrote about it, or his writing did not survive]] to be compiled with the rest of the New Testament.

* ViewersAreGeniuses: Scholars have observed that this is the only New Testament epistle that seems to be constructed specifically as a theological treatise, rather than a personal letter about specific concerns in the early church. Theological commentaries on it can run to multiple volumes. This is amusingly referenced in Literature/TheBible itself, when Peter remarks on Paul's letters in one of his own epistles: "His letters contain some things that are hard to understand..." ([[http://biblehub.com/2_peter/3-16.htm 2 Peter 3:16]]).

-->''"For rulers are not a terror to good works, but to the evil. Wilt thou then not be afraid of the power? do that which is good, and thou shalt have praise of the same: For he is the minister of God to thee for good. But if thou do that which is evil, be afraid; for he beareth not the sword in vain: for he is the minister of God, a revenger to execute wrath upon him that doeth evil."''

* HolierThanThou: Deconstructed in the beginning of Chapter 2, when, after listing several obvious sins in the previous chapter, Paul continues by pointing out that if you're inclined to judge those sinners, that shows you're just as guilty.

* KnowNothingKnowItAll: Paul describes {{NayTheist}}s this way, since they know God exists but reject Him for idols as a pretext for immorality. "Professing to be wise, they became fools."
