      By far the easiest way I’ve found to read these letters in chronological order is to read The Authentic Letters of Paul (Dewey et al), which not only puts the letters in chronological order but also grapples with places where others may have edited and rearranged the letters, and/or added new material.. Full disclosure: I was involved, albeit only slightly, in the editing process of this.   The following material addresses issues of historical importance for Paul’s letter to the Romans.

The Author Although there is no dispute about Pauline authorship, it may be helpful to rehearse, in brief, why that is the.

The Pauline Letters Background and overview. In the New Testament canon of 27 books, 21 are called “letters,” and even the Revelation to John starts and ends in letter form. Of 13 belong to the Pauline corpus; the Letter to the Hebrews is included in the Pauline corpus in the East but not, however, in the West. Three letters of this corpus, the Pastoral Letters, are pseudonymous.

    About Paul’s letter to Rome’s Christians Romans Rome was the greatest city in the world at the time of Paul. Often, we use the word ‘Romans’ to mean its powerful rulers, many of whom opposed the first Christians fiercely. However, Paul wrote the Book of Romans as a letter to the Christians in that city. Sources. Of the 27 books in the New Testament, 13 are attributed to Paul, and approximately half of another, Acts of the Apostles, deals with Paul’s life and , about half of the New Testament stems from Paul and the people whom he influenced. Only 7 of the 13 letters, however, can be accepted as being entirely authentic (dictated by Paul himself).
