Wesley's Notes for Romans 15:26


15:26 The poor of the saints that are in Jerusalem - It can by no means be inferred from this expression, that the community of goods among the Christians was then ceased. All that can be gathered from it is, that in this time of extreme dearth, #Acts 11:28|,29, some of the church in Jerusalem were in want; the rest being barely able to subsist themselves, but not to supply the necessities of their brethren.

    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!
