I write these notes on Romans 15:1–33 (read together with 1:1–15 and other passages of Romans) as resources for a group discussion of Romans 15 and its teaching about mission for the group's life context. I presuppose that the group will want to have three rounds of discussion. According to the size of the group these three rounds can take place in one long session – with the larger group breaking down in smaller groups and coming back together three times, for instance during an evening – or in three shorter sessions. The first round-table discussion is focused on the group members' first readings of Romans 15. The second round-table involves comparing the members' readings with those of scholars. For this purpose, since there are presently three types of scholarly readings of Romans, I present them, underscoring the different ways they conceive of Paul's teaching about mission. Throughout I also presuppose that each member of the group is committed to "read with" the other members this text of Paul as a Scripture about mission, a process that requires a third round-table.
