Jesus’ resurrection lies at the heart of the apostles’ preaching throughout the book of Acts.
Although all the themes in the graphic above are integral to the proclamation of the “good news”, the message of the risen Jesus is the single theme that appears in every recorded gospel explanation in the book and is clearly is the motivation that drives them to boldly proclaim Jesus “from Jerusalem … to the ends of the earth” (Acts 1:8).
In fact, Paul was renown for simply “preaching Jesus and the resurrection” (17:18) and was ultimately arrested and put on trial because of his belief in the risen Lord Jesus (23:6; 24:21).

This overview aims to show how the main theme of Romans, namely Paul’s gospel of salvation in 1:16-17, is expressed throughout the letter. Paul outlines this theme vertically, i.e. how the gospel impacts our relationship with God in chapters 1-8 ( = faith + hope). Paul outlines this theme horizontally, i.e. how the gospel impacts our relationships with others in 12-16 ( = love). Chapters 9-11 are the bridge from the vertical to the horizontal, i.e. how faith in the gospel redefines the people of God, i.e. Jews and Gentiles together in Jesus.
