Note: Welcome to our first multi-part study of 2017! This is Jack’s verse by verse study of Romans, and it’s one of my favorites. Jack started this series 10 years ago this month. He wrote and published one part each week and it is 12 parts. I’ll feature one part each Monday, Wednesday and Saturday. The parts are all linked together, so feel free to read ahead, or catch up on weekends. As always, please let me know how this works for you and if you have any suggestions or advice for the site! God bless you, Samantha
