I received my initial theological education M. In this paper I would provide an analytical studies of the chosen text, Rm.
Analytical Frames  This passage has drawn the attention of many scholars since the publication of a lengthy study of Rauer The sitz im leben of Romans in general and the context of the controversy of Rm. A brief discussion on these concerns is provided at the following. The Sitz im leben of Romans and the Context of Rm.
According to the evidence of the characteristics of the Roman Christians which we found in Rm. Paul's use of household language, such as proslambanw Minear was probably the first scholar who Paul in chinese writing us the significance of using the information uncovered from the last three chapters of Romans to reconstruct the picture of the situation in Rome and to interpret the letter as a whole accordingly.
Further discussion of the context of the passage will be included below. Some scholars, such as Karris,  who appealed to the argument of Rauer,  have argued strongly that the 'weak' might be Christians with syncretistic or ascetic tendencies, but not ordinary Jews.
This way of identifying the 'strong' and the 'weak' has been a point of growing consensus among most scholars. However, the evidence found in Dan. The Issues of Controversy The Sitz im Leben of the controversy between the 'weak' and the 'strong' is probably more specific than many scholars have thought.
Minear rightly, in our opinion, suggests that the controversy happened on the specific occasion when the Jewish Christians and the Gentile Christians worshipped and had communal meals together. We think this is a more plausible suggestion than others, and will seek to demonstrate that plausibility in subsequent discussion.
It is generally agreed that the Roman Christian movement emerged from the Roman Jewish community. It is quite possible that the situation of the Roman Jewish community was a prototype of the situation of the Roman Christians.
In the study of the situation of the Roman Jewish community, there are several findings which are specifically relevant to our understanding of the context and controversy of the Roman Christians: The Roman Jewish community was organized as a community net-work  which consisted of several synagogues without a central governing body.
These synagogues were quite diverse in their background and they adopted the principle of toleration and mutual acceptance in their relationship. The Roman Jews had a considerable interaction with their Gentile neighbours and also made a great effort to preserve their Jewish identity.
Through the Jewish community net-work, different Roman synagogues could share their resources, such as using catacombs.
Moreover, the controversy reflected in Their differences caused tension among themselves. In other words, the principle of toleration and mutual acceptance was not yet adopted in dealing with differences among these Roman Christians who were organized into different house churches.
This situation probably occurred when the Jews returned to Rome after the death of Claudius in 54 C. They will be presented in the personae analysis of Rm. Personae Analysis InDavid Cline published a small but very interesting book: In studying the poem Isaiah Especially, the letters are not simply a source for providing information, but usually aims at performing a process of persuasion to win the readers to the position of the authors, usually related to actions.
If the context requires us to pay attention to the third person as well, we will do so accordingly. While we accept the assumption that Romans was a letter addressed to the situation of Roman Christians, we will focus our enquiry on.
We hope that by using the interaction between the first person and the second person within the text as the framework for our study, we can also have a better approach to understanding how Paul addresses the concrete situation of Roman Christians.
Personae analysis of Rm. Furthermore there are five second person singular pronouns in vv. Naturally, we start our analysis from v. Paul starts his exhortation by using the second person plural imperative  proslambanesthe which most probably refers to the 'strong' mentioned later in With this background as a person on the boundaries, I enter the study of the Christian Scripture, Paul s letter to the Romans in particular, with a strong concern about the identity crisis faced by Chinese Christian as both Chinese (overseas, marginal and Mainlander) and Christian.
