NOTES SECTION FIVE: Slide 3: It is difficult to point at one reason for writing the Letter to the Romans. From the text itself it becomes clear that Paul had multiple purposes in mind when writing the letter. Read the verses to shed some light on the three purposes mentioned in this slide. Slide 4: The literary form of Romans has been subject to much debate. You will learn more about this when you will study chapters 15 and 16. One of the main foci has been how the introduction relates or not relates to the last chapter of the letter. However, another item needs to be discussed. Notice the picture of the piece of an old manuscript of the Letter to the Romans. The original text was in Greek. Notice that it is all capital letters. It is a continuous script—no spaces are present between words or sentences. No punctuation is present either. Notice also that verse numbers and chapter divisions are lacking. All of those features were added many centuries later and thus were part of subjective decisions of scribes. Thus when dealing with the text of Romans you must remember not to make too much of punctuation or capitalization by translators. Slides 5-6:
