From Paul, a servant of Christ Jesus. God called me to be an apostle and chose me to tell the Good News.
God promised this Good News long ago through his prophets, asit is written in the Holy Scriptures.
The Good News is about God's Son, Jesus Christ our Lord. As a man, he was born from the family of David. But through the Spirit of holiness he was appointed to be God's Son with great power by rising from the dead.
Through Christ, God gave me the special work of an apostle, which was to lead people of all nations to believe and obey. I do this work for him.
And you who are in Rome are also called to belong to Jesus Christ.
