Paul on Government, Taxes, & Fulfilling the Law


Ponder the following questions prior to Monday night’s study on Romans 13:

  • How do you correlate v. 1 with political preferences?
  • How do you think Paul’s original audience in Rome “heard” his exhortation in v. 3 … especially in light of their current political climate in Rome?
  • What is the rationale for paying taxes?  What was the tax liability for Paul’s original audience?
  • Describe how four of the “Ten Commandments” listed in v. 9 are summarized in the statement, “You shall love your neighbor as yourself.”
  • To what event(s) does Paul allude in vv. 11-12?
  • Practically, specifically … how do you “put on the Lord Jesus Christ”?

A handout for Romans 13 is available for download at the Media Drop Box on the right-side toolbar.

Scott B. is bringing the dessert … arrive by 7 pm to enjoy it!
