Romans 1:2

From David Martyn Lloyd-Jones' exposition of Romans 1, The Gospel of God; specifically Romans 1:2.

Why was the gospel hidden?
  1. To reveal the depth of our sin
  2. To show mankind cannot save himself
  3. To show God’s lordship and sovereignty

Why does Paul appeal to the Old Testament?
  • To show the gospel was not something strange and new
  • To show the Bible as complete, authoritative, unified, essential
  • To show the New never contradicts the Old
  • To show the New fulfills the Old
  • To show salvation is for the world.
