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 would like to say to the young person that said we are all afraid to tell the truth about homosexuality, for fear of being called a hater.

What is it about man that we should fear him, anyway.

    The words of God are plainly written. In Romans chapter 1:27 tells us plainly about homosexuality. If MEN are leaving NATURAL AFFECTION for women,

    RE : robert L >> About "Christian" word. In the book of Act 26:28 is words from St. Paul, and 1 Peter 4:16 is words from St. Peter. NOT originally from Jesus. By the way, "Christ" original meaning from Greek scripture stands for "Messiah". What from the questioner want is, the word "Christian" from what Jesus said. Not from ST. PETER or ST. PAUL. Tq
