16:1-15– These verses consist of a list of people who received Paul’s greetings in Rome. They were both Jews and Gentiles, men and women, slave and free.
16:16- Greeting with a holy kiss was a cultural thing amongst the Jews. Some countries in the world today still do this.
16:17-20– Paul tells believers to beware of those who teach false doctrines, for they do it for their own benefits. The believers in Rome knew what was right, just like Paul acknowledged in Romans 15:14,
“Now I myself am confident concerning you, my brethren, that you also are full of goodness, filled with all knowledge, able also to admonish one another.”
Romans 15:14 NKJV
