While still in Greece, the Apostle Paul planned his first trip to the world capital, Rome. He greets 26 individuals by name, ”warming up the audience” of Christians who had formed a church there so the Gospel and his mission might be better received. Paul wrote to a church that was experiencing a time of relative tolerance, but a church that he felt needed basic gospel doctrine. In Romans we see the clearest and most systematic presentation of Christian doctrine in the New Testament. Paul then backs it up with practical application. Paul challenges us to LIVE the ideals we claim to believe. This is a companion to the Cherokee syllabary-only New Testament digitized and released in 2013. Translated into Cherokee in the nineteenth century under the direction of Revs. Samuel Worcester and Elias Boudinot, the Cherokee New Testament is the largest complex text composed in Cherokee by fluent speakers with command of a high level of the language. For generations, the New Testament has been used by Cherokees of all persuasions to learn to speak and write as their ancestors did.
