Wesley's Notes for Romans 10:15


10:15 But how shall they preach, unless they be sent - Thus by a chain of reasoning, from God's will that the gentiles also should call upon him, St. Paul infers that the apostles were sent by God to preach to the gentiles also. The feet - Their very footsteps; their coming. #Isa 52:7|.


People's Bible Notes for Romans 10:15


Ro 10:15 And how shall they preach, except they be sent? Those must go out to them who have knowledge of the gospel. Hence it was needful that the apostles and evangelists be "sent". Hence Christ said, "Go into all the world and preach to every creature" (Mr 16:15 Mt 28:19). Thus Paul shows the duty was laid upon him to preach to Greek as well as Jew. As it is written. See Isa 52:7. How beautiful are the feet of them that preach the gospel, etc. This message was to the Gentiles blessed tidings, and the passage quoted from Isaiah shows, under a figure, how those would rejoice who believed the glad news. See Ac 13:38.

    Job 26 7 says He hung the earth on nothing when the learned people of this world believed the earth was flat. Job was probably ridiculed and certainly the Jews that believed this were however when science caught up, Job was right. If you believe and teach the words of this Gospel, you will not be ashamed.
