Bible commentary

Wesley's Notes for Romans 1:3


1:3 Who was of the seed of David according to the flesh - That is, with regard to his human nature. Both the natures of our Saviour are here mentioned; but the human is mentioned first, because the divine was not manifested in its full evidence till after his resurrection.


People's Bible Notes for Romans 1:3


Ro 1:3 Concerning his Son. The Son of God is the very center of the gospel, and the promises are all concerning him. Born of the seed of David. The two natures combined in the Son, "according to the flesh", are pointed out in this verse and Ro 1:4. As to his human body, he was a descendant of David (Lu 1:32,69), his mother being of David's lineage (Mt 1:16 Lu 3:23).

    Steve morrow, I agree with you 100%! It is one of many things that the "Western" world has thrown off and rejected, that the Lord commands obedience and subjection of the women in the Assembly. They somehow feel that they are above such things, and don't have to obey; but there is good reason for the woman being ordered to keep silence; and a real woman of God will not teach or dominate over men.

    Irene 123 do you mean the words that you agree with --- not all the words??? ROMANS 15:18 FOR I WILL NOT DARE TO SPEAK OF ANY OF THOSE THINGS WHICH CHRIST HATH NOT WROUGHT BY ME TO MAKE THE GENTILES OBEDIENT BY WORD AND DEED 1 TIMOTHY 1:11 LET THE WOMAN LEARN IN SILENCE WITH ALL SUBJECTION 1:12 BUT I SUFFER NO A WOMAN TO TEACH NOR TO USURP AUTHORITY OVER THE MAN BUT TO BE IN SILENCE

    People are always stating, concerning the Bible, "I believe", "I think", "my opinion": what Jesus said after His 40 days of fasting and praying when satan came to him was, "IT IS WRITTEN ..... "

    To Joey on 12 15 '15 - What Peter wrote, what Paul wrote, what James wrote, what Jude wrote, are all from the 'mouth' of GOD. ALL scripture is given by inspiration of God. Who is - JESUS Jesus Jehovah in O.T. is God's name.

    In Acts, Paul's conversion had not had time to reach Jerusalem when first he went there. In his letter he had been converted for quite some time and was well known and known of in Jesus' church, altho' he hadn't personally been to the Rome church as yet. The things of Rom. happened AFTER the things of Acts. "Come now, let us reason together ....." Isa.1:18.
