- King James Bible "Authorized Version", Cambridge Edition
10:15 But how shall they preach, unless they be sent - Thus by a chain of reasoning, from God's will that the gentiles also should call upon him, St. Paul infers that the apostles were sent by God to preach to the gentiles also. The feet - Their very footsteps; their coming. #Isa 52:7|.
Ro 10:15 And how shall they preach, except they be sent? Those must go out to them who have knowledge of the gospel. Hence it was needful that the apostles and evangelists be "sent". Hence Christ said, "Go into all the world and preach to every creature" (Mr 16:15 Mt 28:19). Thus Paul shows the duty was laid upon him to preach to Greek as well as Jew. As it is written. See Isa 52:7. How beautiful are the feet of them that preach the gospel, etc. This message was to the Gentiles blessed tidings, and the passage quoted from Isaiah shows, under a figure, how those would rejoice who believed the glad news. See Ac 13:38.

I thought this verse was talking about the preachers in the pulpit,but now I think it could be anyone who can study and tell others what thus saith the lord.

Romans 10:15.....And how can people preach UNLESS THEY ARE SENT? [ who were sent and by whom and with what authority?] "SENT", as used in the Greek language of which the book of Romans was written, is apostello. [apostle]
John 20:21-23.....Jesus said to them again, "Peace be with you. As the Father has SENT me, so I SEND you." And when he had said this, he breathed on them and said to them, "Receive the holy Spirit. Whose sins you forgive are forgiven them, and whose sins you retain are retained."
[apostalic succession]....Romans 10:15.....And how can people preach UNLESS THEY ARE SENT? how do Non-Catholic preachers preach if they are not in the line of succession going all the way back to the Apostles???
Why would Jesus go through the trouble of giving the apostles this authority if He preferred the practice of personal confession direct to Himself?
