Ruminating on ROMANS! (Some Thoughts on Paul’s Great Epistle) #6 The Final Judgment of God (Romans 2:7-11)
Many of you know that my New Jersey friend Frank and I are reading through God’s Word together (described here). We’re now in the book of Romans and are reading chapter 2 each day this week. Here is something that I noticed in reading this chapter:
Please notice that the two sets of parentheses are supplied by me. When I work on a passage, I try to see the structure and this paragraph divides nicely into two categories. I’ve also put this in chart form:
This is a fascinating text! If I’m understanding the passage correctly, this is a description of God’s final judgment on all people, Jew and Gentile.

What are some observations you would add to this brief look at Romans 2:7-11? Feel free to leave a comment below.
