In his Letter to the Romans , Paul argues from plight to solution. The Gospel he proclaims is the “ power of God for salvation .” Due to sin, two forces are at work in the world – Righteousness and Wrath. In his Son, God provides salvation, the solution to the desperate plight of all men, and one that is available to all on the same basis - “ from the faith of Jesus Christ .” And this “ Good News ” was promised beforehand in the Hebrew scriptures.

In his Letter to the Romans , Paul stresses the “ righteousness of God ” that is revealed whenever the Gospel is proclaimed. It is the “ power of God for salvation to everyone who believes .” Moreover, in the Gospel, this “ righteousness ” is being proclaimed throughout the earth to “ Jews and Greeks ” alike. Salvation is now available for all men through the “ faith of Jesus Christ ,” His “ Righteous One ” (“ From faith to faith… My Righteous One will live from faith ”).
