Martin Luther on the Book of Romans


This Epistle is really the chief part of the New Testament and the very purest Gospel, and it is worthy not only that every Christian should know it word for word, by heart, but occupy himself with it every day, as the daily bread of the soul.  It can never be read or pondered too much, and the more it is dealt with the more precious it becomes, and the better it tastes (Martin Luther, “Preface to the Epistle to the Romans,” Works of Martin Luther, Baker Book House, 1982 reprint, volume VI, page 447).


“For I am not ashamed of the gospel;  it is the power of God for salvation to every one who has faith, to the Jew first and also the Greek.  For in it the righteousness of God is revealed through faith for faith;  as it is written ‘He who through faith is righteous, shall live.”

Romans 1:16-17
