From Paul, a servant of Christ Jesus and an apostle chosen and called by God to preach his Good News.
The Good News was promised long ago by God through his prophets, as written in the Holy Scriptures.
It is about his Son, our Lord Jesus Christ: as to his humanity, he was born a descendant of David;
as to his divine holiness, he was shown with great power to be the Son of God by being raised from death.
Through him God gave me the privilege of being an apostle for the sake of Christ, in order to lead people of all nations to believe and obey.
This also includes you who are in Rome, whom God has called to belong to Jesus Christ.
