Romans / 1 Corinthians
A Verse-by-Verse Commentary
Romans and 1 Corinthians are the first two Pauline letters in the New Testament. Paul founded the church in Corinth at the end of his second missionary journey and wrote to the Christians in Rome when he was in Corinth a second time.
Paul’s letter to the Romans is a systematic explanation of important truths about the gospel and how the gospel can be lived out in daily life.
Paul encountered a difficult situation with the Corinthian church and his letter to them is more personal than his letter to the Roman Christians, whom he did not know. Although he had to deal firmly with such urgent matters as personal morality, public worship, and splits in the church, he opens the letter with praise and thanks for the Corinthians. Vine’s commentary matches the pastoral heart of Paul.
An Amazon reviewer said that Vine’s commentary on Romans is “a great commentary based on the Greek. . . . Vine is more brief, less obscure theologically, and easier to read than most. The commentary is not above a lay teacher who will take the time to read and study.”
