People's Bible Notes for Romans 15:9


Ro 15:9 That the Gentiles might glorify God. It was a part of this plan, all the while, that Christ, "born under the law" (Ga 4:4), should save the Gentiles, and enable them to glorify God for his mercy to them. As it is written. Various passages from the Old Testament are now quoted to show God's purpose to give the gospel to the Gentiles. For this cause, etc. This quotation is from Ps 18:49, and implies that God shall be confessed, and his praises sung among 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!
