People's Bible Notes for Romans 15:12


Ro 15:12 Esaias saith. The quotation that follows is from Isa 11:10, a chapter which is throughout a prediction of Christ and his kingdom. A root of Jesse. Jesse, the father of David, was an ancestor of Jesus (Mt 1:6 Lu 3:32). In him shall the Gentiles trust. The passage quoted shows very clearly that Christ was to be the Savior of the Gentiles.

    ROMANS 15:4 for whatsoever things were written aforetime were written for our learning that we through patience and comfort of the scriptures might have hope MARK 8:35 FOR WHOSOEVER WILL SAVE HIS LIFE SHALL LOSE IT BUT WHOSOEVER SHALL LOSE HIS LIFE --- FOR MY SAKE AND THE GOSPELS --- THE SAME SHALL SAVE IT

    Paul wanted the Christians in Rome to know that he planned to visit there! Both Jews and Gentiles were recipent’s of his letter. He emphasizes that man's justification before God depends on the mercy of Christ and not on the law of Moses. Paul gives his reason for the Epistle and review some of their characteristics. Various personal greetings are extended in
    conclusion of this writing!
