In chapter one, Paul writes to believers about sharing the Gospel and his desire to come to Rome to preach the Good News. Chapter one ends with Paul writing about those who rejected God and did “every manner of shameful and wicked things.” In chapter two, Paul turns to Jews who thought that because they were God’s people they did not need to worry about judgment, believing their sins would not be punished as the sins of Gentiles. Paul emphasizes that God’s grace was intended to turn the Jews from their sin, not condone a sinful lifestyle.
