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.

Discussion for Romans 10

    The book of Romans was written to the church in Rome, but not the one that is predominant there now. This EARLY church was established after Acts 2:38 was preached by Peter. The ch. in Rome had already gone thru Acts 2:38; this letter is an 'epistle', which simply means letter, a letter of further instruction for their life long walk with Jesus. V. 9 refers to DAILY acknowledging Him in prayer.
