Today – sharing the “Introduction” and then 50 Questions Paul the Apostle of Christ Asked in the first 8 Chapters of his book to the Romans.

 

 

 

 

As you read through this book, imagine that you are sitting and having a conversation with the Apostle Paul. Take time to reflect on Paul’s questions and write down your answers before opening your Bible to see how he answers.

If you are familiar with my second book, 339 Questions Jesus Asked, you might wonder: “What is the difference between the questions Jesus asked and the questions Paul asked?” The main difference is the questions Jesus asked—recorded by Matthew, Mark, Luke, and John—are questions recorded from conversations Jesus had with people. Whereas, with the exception of the questions recorded by Luke in the Book of Acts, all of Paul’s questions were part of the letters he wrote to the New Testament Churches he had planted. They were questions within the letters he wrote, not part of spoken conversations.

Paul used questions in his letters as a way to get his readers to think. After asking a question, Paul shared the answers to most of the questions he wrote. As you read Paul’s questions, I encourage you to stop and let yourself be challenged by the questions he asks.

Enjoy your time with the Apostle Paul!
