Bible commentary

Wesley's Notes for Romans 1:3


1:3 Who was of the seed of David according to the flesh - That is, with regard to his human nature. Both the natures of our Saviour are here mentioned; but the human is mentioned first, because the divine was not manifested in its full evidence till after his resurrection.


People's Bible Notes for Romans 1:3


Ro 1:3 Concerning his Son. The Son of God is the very center of the gospel, and the promises are all concerning him. Born of the seed of David. The two natures combined in the Son, "according to the flesh", are pointed out in this verse and Ro 1:4. As to his human body, he was a descendant of David (Lu 1:32,69), his mother being of David's lineage (Mt 1:16 Lu 3:23).

    THE KEY TO IT ALL ....
    For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ: for it is the power of God unto salvation to every one that believeth; to the Jew first, and also to the Greek.

    Romans 1 is about all sinners gay or straight that our ways and thoughts are as he says as far from his as the earth is the heavens. God loves all his creation, but he hates the choices of our free will against anything he has designed it and things to be. Romans 1 is my self examination of myself and seeing my every second need for My Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ.

    Some may not like my view, but I definitely believe the message in vs 24 thru 32 is very clear - being gay or lesbian goes against God's word. Sincere repentence and being born again is the answer.

    The book of Roman Chapter 1 is a holistic inspiration of God Almighty. It proves the truthfulness and existent of Our God and father in all things he created. For out of nothing he brought out what that exist to be. For there is Almighty God existent in all things he created, living and non living things. Even non living things such as rock are empirically alive un to God and not abstract.
