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

  • Antonio
    Romans (the Book as a whole) is a treatise in itself. I read the ROMANS thinking it was for Roman Catholics, that some bishop had written for "us" it had a powerful effect in me. I came to Christ. Romans 1 tells me of the "imputed righteousness" which comes as a result of faith.
    verse 1:4 that Jesus resurected and is alive. and the gospel of Christ is the power of God unto salvation for all.

    I love reading Gods word

    In verse 25 they worshiped the creature over the Creator. No creation should take place over our relationship with God.

  • Burris
    I like the book of Romans, we had this chapter in Sunday School the other Sunday ago, I notice the writer left out the 26 -29 verses. Its talking about how man has left his natural affection for a woman and has turn to man, men with men and women with women. the bible is right I don't care how many laws man make up and changed. We as Christian need to stand up for whats right.
