Passage: Romans 16:1-16
Service Type:

DEEP SHEET: Sermon Study Questions
  What do you find most surprising, interesting, or edifying in this list of names? Are there any that stand out to you?
2.   How does this passage reflect the diversity of the Roman church? Considering the rest of the letter, how might this diversity have given rise to tension and division?
3.   What does it say about God’s purposes that many of these people were likely slaves or former slaves? How does this relate to 1 Corinthians 1:26-29?
4.   Where do we see reference to multiple house churches? Where do we find evidence that Christianity had made its way into “Caesar’s household” (Philippians 4:22)?
5.   What language does Paul use to emphasize unity amid diversity? How can we lose sight of the one great unifier?
6.   How does Paul’s directive in v. 16 build on his example? What is the “holy kiss,” and what are the implications for us today?
7.   How does the final sentence keep both the universal and the local church in view?

References: 1 Corinthians 1:26-29; 2 Corinthians 8:23; Mark 15:21; Philippians 4:22; Romans 12:10; 1 Peter 5:14.
