Paul Needed Romans 8, Just Like Us

A Pilgrim's Theology

“Paul himself was killed outside the city at Tre Fontane. As a Roman citizen, he was spared the horror of crucifixion, being thrown to wild animals, or being burned alive. Most likely, he was beheaded with a sword. “Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? Shall … [the] sword?” (Rom. 8:35, emphasis added). No, a sword did not sever Paul from the love of Jesus Christ. Nothing could come between the apostle and the certainty of heaven that awaited him.” -Derek Thomas
