The BFF New Testament Bible Digital Library has all the Roman study and advanced study questions (as above) plus all of BFF's Bible resources. Details or purchase.
Each section of Romans is broken up into teaching or study sections. There is a set of Bible Studies for each set. The NASB is used but other translations can be used alongside the Bible Studies. The series of Bible Study questions is meant to lead one into the discovery of the scripture's teaching. Sometimes there is both a basic and advanced set of Bible Studies. The study Bible Studies focus on the three following parts.
These answers will be found right in the Bible passage. The NASB text is used because it is more literal. These questions will encourage one to ask, "What does the passage actually say?"
At the end, there is room for one's own applications. These questions will encourage one to ask, "What does the passage mean to me?" These answers are meant to be personal and have to do with one's own life.
These answers will not be found in the text as the general questions. One has to use other knowledge that one has gleaned over the years to answer these properly. They are meant to encourage one to dig deeper into the point of the passage. These questions would have one ask, "What does it mean?"
