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).

    I urge people to read the word of God, particularly Romans 1:24 to 32. Paul reiterates the nature which God is expecting us to be by denying worldly nature.
  • 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.
  • Charity Baker
    Roman l speaks of God's revelation of " The Just shall live by faith." 17 He is speaking against all ungodliness and unrighteousness. 18 Man depravity to serve the creature and not the Creator, becoming darken or without understanding.21 Their hearts turned against God to dishonor their own bodies.24 They did not want to retain God in their knowledge and were turned over to a reprobate mind.28
