The Book Of Romans is widely thought of as one of the most hard to understand biblical texts – and I would agree.

The historical record I work with, based largely on Dr Stephen Jones and Matthew McGee’s work, is this (these dates are generally universally accepted to within a year or two anyhow):

Jesus was crucified in AD 33

Establishment of Church in Rome AD 33 – 34

Stoning of Stephen and great Jerusalem persecution AD 35-39 (AD36?)

Paul’s conversion AD 37-39  (AD37?)

Paul’s letter to the Romans AD 57 – 58
