“But now hauing no more place in these parts, and hauing a great desire these many yeeres to come vnto you:”

15:23 Having no longer place in these parts - Where Christ has now been preached in every city.
Ro 15:23 But now having no more place in these parts. Everywhere around the eastern Mediterranean the name of Christ had been preached, so that churches were formed in all the chief cities. Hence, Paul wished to seek new fields. Having a great desire these many years to come unto you. See Ro 1:11 Ac 19:21.
