Romans: When was it written?

The year that Paul wrote Romans has many different points of view.  I have seen dates from AD 52 to AD 57 and there are probably more.

One thing that seems to be consistent is that was written in the Acts 20 to Acts 21 time frame while he was in Corinth.

To me it really doesn't matter when it was written and I don't think it should be something we should get hung up on.  We will leave that argument up to professors.

The important thing to me about Romans is that it is chalked full of doctrine for us today.  Chapters 1-3 are all about sin and how we got there.  It also teaches us about the grace of God and how He planned the whole thing before the world began. Romans 16:25

Ok, tomorrow we start on Chapter 1.  Enough of this into stuff.  See you tomorrow.
