Wesley's Notes for Romans 1:4


1:4 But powerfully declared to be the Son of God, according to the Spirit of Holiness - That is, according to his divine nature. By the resurrection from the dead - For this is both the fountain and the object of our faith; and the preaching of the apostles was the consequence of Christ's resurrection.


People's Bible Notes for Romans 1:4


Ro 1:4 But declared [to be] the Son of God. Though in human form he was demonstrated to be divine by power, such power as he displayed in mighty miracles, and especially by the greater miracle of his own resurrection from the dead. According to the spirit of holiness. It must be noted that this is a contrast with "according to the flesh" in Ro 1:3, and hence must refer to our Lord's holy nature. The body was descended from David, but the pure, holy life was demonstrated to be divine. One was a human nature; the other was a divine nature. This nature is spoken of as "the spirit of holiness", because it is contrasted with sinful flesh.

    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. That's not true, we all aren't afraid, because before I read that comment. God hasn't given us a spirit of fear but of POWER and a SOUND MIND. Fear has torment. 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
