Like generally differing siblings raised by means of a similar mom and dad, every one letter produced through Paul has its personal distinguishing personality. For the traditionally minded critic, every one letter’s particular qualities offer very important clues for detecting the situations within which Paul wrote it in addition to what he was hoping to accomplish with it. students imagine that by way of studying the content material of the letter (the “answer”), they could infer the readers’ scenario that Paul is addressing (the “question”)--a approach also known as “mirror reading.” with regards to Romans, besides the fact that, either the actual characteristics and the general content material are so strange that students proceed to discuss why Paul wrote accurately this letter and what he was hoping to accomplish via it in Rome."

Keck asserts that simply because Romans is a part of the recent testomony, we will be able to evaluate it with the opposite letters ascribed to Paul, in addition to with what Acts experiences approximately his message and challenge. however the first readers of Romans had basically this letter; they can examine it merely with what they might have heard approximately him. whereas this remark does now and then examine Romans with what Paul had acknowledged sooner than, it concentrates on Romans itself; what Paul says in this text shouldn't be conflated with--nor inflated into--what he thought comprehensively, although it's necessary to keep in mind that as well.
"We don't actually need one other significant observation [on Romans] that loses us within the trivialities of be aware experiences, literary parallels, sociological and rhetorical hypotheses; we've such in lots. The Abingdon sequence, although, through its constrained measurement, forces the contributor to target the first job of the commentator: to explain the which means (intended or capability) of the phrases of the textual content and to supply a few uncomplicated mirrored image on its/their carrying on with value. and that's the place Keck excels." - James D. G. Dunn, evaluate of Biblical Literature 04/2006.
