Wesley's Notes for Romans 10:18


10:18 But their unbelief was not owing to the want of hearing For they have heard. Yes verily - So many nations have already heard the preachers of the gospel, that I may in some sense say of them as David did of the lights of heaven. #Psa 29:4|


People's Bible Notes for Romans 10:18


Ro 10:18 Have they not heard? Who are alluded to? Both Jews and Gentiles. The objector might say, Well, if faith comes by hearing, so few have heard that we are not responsible for our unbelief. Nay, says the apostle, the opportunity to hear has been very widely extended. In the language of the Psalmist Ps 19:4, Their sound went into all the earth. The sound of the preachers of the gospel. And their words unto the ends of the world. When the vast multitude converted on Pentecost were scattered to their homes, they carried the gospel into all parts of the civilized world. Paul was now writing to the church in Rome, where no apostle had ever been.

  • Jonathan Timmons
    For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved is the first part of it. This chapter expressed to call on the name of the lord/confess it. This means that you have transformed. Transformation is a total turn of events in your life. This means to give up your old ways and put on the new. This means to not go back and do what you were doing.

    Lillian - May The Good Lord keep you and guide you always. In Jesus' name I pray. Amen
  • Irene123
    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.
