The sixth book of the [[Literature/TheBible New Testament]] and the first letter of the Pauline epistles. The Apostle Paul writes to the Roman Empire that salvation is offered through the Gospel of Jesus Christ.

One of the seven "[[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pauline_epistles Pauline epistles]]" which latter-day scholars believe were actually written by Paul the Apostle. The other five are First Thessalonians, Galatians, Phillipians, Philemon, and [[Literature/BookOfCorinthians First and Second Corinthians]]. Scholarship is divided on two more Pauline epistles, Colossians and Second Thessalonians, with the other four epistles bearing Paul's name--Ephesians, First Timothy, Second Timothy, and Titus--generally regarded as not being actually written by Paul.

* EarnYourHappyEnding: {{Subverted|Trope}} in Romans 11:6 in regards to doing good deeds to go to Heaven. No matter how hard a person works, they can't earn their way up there, but because {{Jesus}} died for humanity's sins, all we have to do is to accept Him as our savior to make it up to Heaven.

* 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."''
