The letter of Romans has been read through many different lenses throughout church history. One lens that has not been greatly explored is the lens of pastoral theology. Through understanding the background and context of Romans one discovers that this is a pastoral letter written to a church in conflict. When one redefines, key words found in Romans such as “sin” and “righteousness” by understanding Romans to be a pastoral letter written to a church in conflict, then one begins to reread Roman through a pastoral theology lens. This rereading through a pastoral lens can help modern day churches find biblical ways to bring about unity in diversity.
