The Freedom Letter to the Romans

KEY TAKEAWAYS

In a way no ancient text had contemplated, the Letter to the Romans introduced two great themes into the bloodstream of the West: human equality and human freedom.

The themes of freedom and equality in the Letter to the Romans can be discerned in the beloved hymn, “Amazing Grace,” written by John Newton.

Reverend Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. saw parallels in his life and that of the Apostle Paul. He used Paul’s Letter to the Romans in his campaign for civil rights.
