Wesley's Notes for Romans 9:10


9:10 And that God's blessing does not belong to all the descendants of Abraham, appears not only by this instance, but by that of Esau and Jacob, who was chosen to inherit the blessing, before either of them had done good or evil. The apostle mentions this to show, that neither were their ancestors accepted through any merit of their own. That the purpose of God according to election might stand - Whose purpose was, to elect or choose the promised seed. Not of works - Not for any preceding merit in him he chose. But of him that called - Of his own good pleasure who called to that privilege whom he saw good.


People's Bible Notes for Romans 9:10


Ro 9:10 And not only [this]. The first argument is that the true seed are children of the promise, a spiritual seed rather than of the flesh. But when Rebecca also had conceived, etc. The second argument, now begun, is that God has the right to reject what nation he will, including the Jews, and to choose other races if he will. This is shown by facts from history. He did exercise the right of choice when he chose Jacob as the chosen nation, instead of Esau. The facts are recited to show this.

    verse 4 Who are israelites to whom pertinent the promises verse 8 That is, They which are the children of the flesh these are not the children of God verse 24,25 Read Hosea 2:23, Hosea 1:10 These are all israelites not outsiders

    I am sharing this because I believe in Jesus to help me to share this.

    The stumblingblock from verses 30-33, is not Jesus. Jesus cannot be the stumblingblock because he is our salvation. He did everything in his power as God's own Son, to help us believe in him. If we don't take him at his word, that is the stumblingblock. God bless.
