Romans 16:1-27 – John Chrysostom, an Early Church Father and the Archbishop of Constantinople in the 4th century, wrote this about the last chapter of Romans: “I think that many even of those who have the appearance of being extremely good men, hasten over this part of the epistle as superfluous … Yet the gold founders’ people are careful even about the little fragments … it is possible even from bare names to find a great treasure.”
The end of Romans is kind of like the genealogy of Matthew, a lot of names that you may be tempted to skip over. However, all of Scripture is God-breathed and profitable, even the genealogies and greetings.
The profit in Romans 16 is that Paul is doing more than listing difficult names – he is celebrating Christian relationship.
