    AN INTERPRETIVE OUTLINE OF THE EPISTLE TO THE ROMANS THEME: DIVINE RIGHTEOUSNESS The theme of Romans is the righteousness of God. Note the development of this theme throughout the epistle:
    RIGHTEOUSNESS REQUIRED from humanity (1:18–3:20) RIGHTEOUSNESS REVEALED in Christ alone (3:21–26) RIGHTEOUSNESS RECEIVED by faith alone (3:27–5:21) RIGHTEOUSNESS REALIZED in sanctification (6:1–8:11) RIGHTEOUSNESS RETAINED in glorification (8:12–39) RIGHTEOUSNESS REJECTED by non–elect Israel (9:1–11:36) RIGHTEOUSNESS REPRODUCED in a converted life (12:1–16:27)

    Thank you for this wonderful eye-straining head-scratching outline of the book of Romans. I may get around to deciphering/unraveling it some day. (but don't hold your breath)
