(1) The Way To Be Saved (Romans 3:21-25a)

1. Since we aren’t justified in God’s sight by perfectly completing the law, how is it possible to attain the righteousness of God (Romans 3:21-22)? 

2. How is this method different or similar to the way it is revealed in Romans 1:16-17?

3. For this method of being justified (lit. declared to be righteous) to be effective, does it matter to which race or background you belong (Romans 3:22)?

4. Why is it that one’s background does not influence how one is saved (Romans 3:23)?  

5. Explain what Romans 3:24 says about the way we are saved? 

6. How did God display or present Jesus Christ (Romans 3:25a)?  

(2) A Few Considerations (Romans 3:25b-31)

7. Why is it that even though the blood and sacrifice of animals could never forgive anyone, that God didn’t judge everyone right on the spot before the time of Jesus (Romans 3:25b-26)?

8. What cripples a man’s attempt to boast before God about his righteous works (Romans 3:27-28)?

9. Is the Jew (circumcised) and the Gentile (not circumcised) justified and saved in the same way or in different ways (Romans 3:29- 30)?  

10. All the laws in the Old Testament can’t save us. Should we then despise the law (Romans 3:31)? Why or why not?

12. List at least three changes you desire to take place in your life because of these verses.





Bonus question on Romans 3:21-31

  • Why do you suppose so many people think they can get to heaven by earning their way there?

  • Does it matter how wicked or bad someone has been in the past as to whether he can still be saved? Why?

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.

  • Basic Bible Study Questions

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?"

  • Application Bible Study Questions

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.

  • Bonus Bible Study Questions

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?"
