Chapter Summary

Throughout history, Romans has been regarded as a theological treasure of the Bible, and various theological motifs have been found and studied according to issues in the history of interpretation. This chapter focuses on three questions: where is Paul's central point(s) or peak(s) in Rom 1:16-8:39, what is the content of it, and how does one determine the central point(s)? In order to answer these questions, the author reviews various readings of Romans. Even if each reading has its own merits, except discourse analysis, they share a common weakness that they do not seem to regard the text as the starting point of their analysis. This weakness indicates that these readings cannot be the primary reading for Romans, because they should rely on a reading that deals with the text itself.
