Wesley's Notes for Romans 1:2


1:2 Which he promised before - Of old time, frequently, solemnly. And the promise and accomplishment confirm each other. #De 18:18|; Isa 9:6,7; 53:1; 61:1; Jer 23:5.


People's Bible Notes for Romans 1:2


Ro 1:2 Which he had promised before, etc. This gospel was no innovation, but a fulfillment of God's long-cherished plans, and had been promised through the prophets of the Old Testament. Indeed the Old Testament is a system of types, shadows and promises pointing forward to the coming of Christ. "Of him have all the prophets borne witness" (Ac 10:43).

Discussion for Romans 1

    Tony:Yes it will. Years back pastors and others would be out inviting people to church, talking about the Lord and the Bible, it was common and accepted. People would receive 4- 12 visits a month from four different churches,plus JW. Today 0-5 maybe! Mostly JW. When "June" happened, shocked, total disbelief?!??!? GOD "did" bless U.S.A the Night cometh, when no man can work

    Vs. 20

    Very simple and makes sense. How can anyone look at the creation of the world and rule out that someone created it? Creation itself should tell you there is an intelligent designer. However, we can not rely on creation to tell us everything about Jehovah God. We must also read his word the Bible as it reveals the character of the Creator.

    ROMANS 1:28 AND EVEN AS THEY DID NOT LIKE TO RETAIN IN THEIR KNOWLEDGE GOD GAVE THEM OVER TO A REPROBATE MIND TO DO THOSE THINGS WHICH ARE NOT CONVENIENT
  • Joan Travick
    Romans 1:1-2 references the scripture wherein GOD said, I will send you pastors and teachers after mine own heart. Paul's calling was a call of election by the WILL
