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 depravity of man is in romans 1-24-32 a clear picture of our culture
    hell awaits them what a sad state yet they think it is an acceptable
    life style and GOD will pass by there sin how sad 1cor6-9 also
    mentions sodomy and other sins which are practiced without
    real repentance in faith in jesus christ for salvation will
    be in hell based upon GOds word not mine

    We please Godby our faith and through faith alone, not by faith through works.

    Verses 11, 12 talk about the encouraging and positive results of meeting together with fellow believers. We not only receive encouragement but we want to make sure to give it to others to help them be firm in the faith.

    Faith is pleasing to God : Faith is the righteousness of God : Jesus is our righteousness and Jesus walked in Faith toward God : It is from Faith to Faith : This is a continual walk with God : You cannot have faith without being obedient to what you hear : Doing : From Faith to Faith . If you be willing and obedient , you shall eat the good of the land .

    In Romans 1 Paul humble himself explaining his call as an apostle in a servant manner. He do not boast about being a called apostle by God but a servant called of God. He greet them by telling of their faithful and how the whole world knew of it. We learn much just reading and meditating on Chapter 1. We learn of our indebtedness to all people, and that all have a need of Salvation. God be praised
