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).

Discussion for Romans 1

  • Rena
    Verse 4 of this chapter is the key to understanding that the book of Romans compares and contrasts the sinful Adamic nature of mankind to the Holy nature of Jesus, God's Son. His Holiness is the basis for His resurrection, mankind's salvation, and our daily walk with Him.

    For therein the righteousness of God revealed from faith to faith. The Just shall live by faith.
    We should walk by faith and not by sight

    ROMANS 1:18 FOR THE WRATH OF GOD IS REVEALED FROM HEAVEN AGAINST ALL UNGODLINESS AND UNRIGHTEOUSNESS OF MEN WHO HOLD THE TRUTH IN UNRIGHTEOUSNESS
  • Randy
    Hey there Austin! Yep, I hear what you're saying. It's funny, because the god they worship doesn't mind their godlessness. And they think they are moral. Verse 28 sure fits. Don't know your email.

    Phil 4 verse 13 I can do all things thru Christ who strength me
  • Austin
    In Romans Chapter 1: 20-25 refers to people depicting God as something he's not. Like in verse 23 it says "they changed the glory of an uncorruptible God into an image made like corruptible to man ..." what that is saying along with the other verses you asked about, is that (man) meaning people of the world took god and made him something he is not. I can explain better if you contact me via email
